Keeping Up With Kerry Update

DATE REGION

I completed my 2nd challenge....... I crossed the Tough Mudder finish line on 16th August (a 12 mile run over rough terrain with obstacles). This was event that I was most apprehensive about because of the type of obstacles you encounter. For example; 'Arctic Enema' is an industrial skip full of freezing water filled with ice, which you have to submerge yourself in to get through. All I can say is that it was as horrendous as it sounds! The other obstacle that I found difficult was 'cage crawl'. I've included some pics of this.
