Monday Wake-Up Call

Good Monday!  For those of you who read my last Friday's post on Tough Mudder, YES, I survived the 2012 Tri-State Tough Mudder on Saturday!  It was tough as anything but I did it!  All obstacles were tackled except for one - the second "Berlin Wall", which is an obstacle involving a vertical wood plank you have to climb up and come down.  The first one in the course cramped up my arms and fingers so bad that I decided to skip the second one. This was the first race ever that left me limping on my way back to the parking lot!  Luckily, I took 3 Advils and that really relieved the inflamed tissues around my knees, where I was hurting the most.  I am still sore and bearing some bruises but overall, for those who are considering doing this, it's a LOT of fun and really worth doing it.  If I can do it, so can you!! 
Btw, all of my friends were participants so I don't really have any photos of me muddied up.  I'm going to see if I can find some photos from the professional photographers who were at the event.  

Ok, onto my usual Monday talk.  Did you know that Nate Berkus has his own line at Target?!  I just found this out last night!  Had I known, I would have dragged my sore butt to Target for his goodies because they look really awesome! I hope you were able to make it Target. Here's what I saw online of NB's goodies and I can't wait to get to Target after work!

  1. Way to go at the Tough Mudder! I've thought about doing one but then realized how long it was and decided I'm not quite ready yet. Best I've managed is a 5k mud run. You should feel amazing for your accomplishment! I hope you find pictures!

    1. Jamie, if I can do it, you can do it too. You'd be surprised how one can find the will to get through some of these crazy obstacles :) There's also so much camaraderie out there, which really helps you to get through the entire course. I hope you give it a try in the future!

  2. Since when did Nate come to Target? Last time I was there which was pretty recently I didn't see his stuff! Will be going again soon to check it out. Thanks for the FYI!
