Hi folks, I’m Dan and I represent the average weekend warrior type of mud runner. I don’t have six pack abs and I’m around a 10 minute miler but I love playing in the mud and I’ve found that obstacles, mud, beer and good old fashioned suffering tend to bring out the best in people. I did my first mud run in 2000 and had to wait a decade before the idea caught on with the rest of the country so I could enjoy the luxury we now have of having several great events to choose from on any given weekend. As the sport continues to grow it is vital that the word gets out on the good, the bad and the ugly because here in the infancy of obstacle racing there are plenty of all three out there. This site is a great resource for sorting it all out.
