Too all you people who don't understand the mudders...

Lots of people don't understand the feeling of joy I have while standing on the fairway when a cool summer morning is clearing away into a hot summer day. It's that perfect moment when everything just clicks and your consciousness fades away. You don't have to think about what you are doing because it just feels right. That's usually when the course marshal shoves my bundled up clothes into my hands and tells me to get off his golf course, and take my goat with me. I try to explain that if he doesn't eat pure Kentucky bluegrass he won't win a ribbon at the fair but nobody listens. Bastards.

I want to do a dangerous thing. But I only want it to seem dangerous. In fact, if it is not totally safe I will pursue legal action. America?

I did one of those mud runs last year; never again. It was all a bunch of Walter Mittys; faux manliness from sallow cubicle workers. Pretty pathetic, actually.

You can't waive this away.

/I hope they win the suit, it sounds like a strong case, even from the article (which are usually written to muckraking standards)
//but it will probably be settled out of court if the organizers aren't complete morons.

Really, to me it sounds like just 3 people out of the larger group of runners got injured, but one was bad enough to have to divert people around the obstacle while she was being tended to.

Perhaps these ladies should have stayed someplace that isn't rife with muddy holes, like the kitchen or bedroom.

A friend did this one and he said that there was one part of running through an area where you got electrically shocked and people were just falling over from the jolt. At that point I would quit the race.

dittybopper: Idiots.

In a couple weeks, I'm going to run a primitive biathlon course that has a hill that is aptly named "Fat Man's Misery". If I have a heart attack or slip and injure myself, should I sue?

Depends. Are you a fat man?

"Gee, I never thought jumping off a 25 foot cliff into a puddle of mud at the age of 59 could injure me!!!"

This lady should be fired from the police force for being an idiot.

deanis: I don't understand these obstacle course races. Is it that much fun being covered in mud, electrically shocked, AND completely exhausted?

From what I understand, yes
