How to Be a TUFF Mudder: Women Warriors Under TOUGH Spartan-Like Course Conditions

Maybe you've heard of the popular obstacle race courses, Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, Warrior Dash, etc.  In this conversation with Paulina, my muddy buddy, we talk about our physical and mental experiences during these races.  

The both of us have strong backgrounds in Psychology and Sociology, so we talk about mental toughness, confidence, competition, discipline, and grit.  We have done Tough Mudders, Spartan Races, Warrior Dashes, and other types of marathons/obstacle races. 

We mention how we each trained for the races and how mentally prepared we must be to endure, prepare, and tough out some harsh conditions.  We give honest reviews about our experiences with each type of race we have done, so you can decide if you want to Spartan Up or be a Tough Mudder.
