I love inspiring stories, which is one of the many reasons why I love shooting weddings, and so I’m sharing one of mine. A few months ago my sister Erin told me she was going to do Tough Mudder, a 10-12 mile obstacle course, for a second year in a row.  I decided to do it with her.  Our team then turned into a team of five: myself, Erin, and our friends Jessah, Mark, and Nick.  We registered, trained, and completed!  Russell followed along the spectator path and was able to catch us at about half of the obstacles.  Here is the course map:

Here are some of the pics from the day (thanks Russell!):

The very first obstacle:

Still in good spirits after obstacle #1, just a little dirty:)

Fire & Ice! Jump over the fire into the ice:)

Starting to feel the effects….

Oh yea, the entire obstacle course was up and down hills….

This obstacle is called Artic Enema….freeazing ice cold water…

You can imagine what I am about to say here….

….and finish saying…

My lovely sister and her ‘What now?!?!?’ expression, lol

Wounded warrior obstacle, we got you!!

And now they got me…uh-oh!

Although I’ve skydived and bungee jumped, heights still make me nervous…

“Russell, get the camera out of my face…’ haha
