How was your race at World's Toughest Mudder 2018? We talked with over a dozen members of the WTM community at the Champion's Brunch and asked them that question.
 
We have said for two years now that we talk about "success and failure" at World's Toughest Mudder. Not everyone had a great race. 
 
To everyone who had a great race: Congratulations! To everyone who knows they could have done better: That's ok. Now you have motivation to last all year long. We will see you at WTM 2019.
 
How was your race? Tell us in a review on Apple Podcasts or Amazon.com

Trevor Cichosz is the men's 2016 World's Toughest Mudder Champion. During his win in 2016 he became one of the seven men to run 100 miles in a single World's Toughest Mudder and joined the exclusive "Orange Jacket Club."

Trevor recently ran 219 miles in a race across Scotland. During the 65 hours it took him to run, he did not sleep at all. He won the race. 

One interesting part of Trevor's race strategy is he makes sure his pit crew does NOT tell him standing in the race. He doesn't want to know what place he is in. This is part of his plan to "Race the course, not the competition."

Rea Kolbl is the women's defending champion of World's Toughest Mudder. Her 90 miles in 2017 tied the women's record set by Amelia Boone in 2012. No woman has ever run more miles in a World's Toughest Mudder than Rea Kolbl.

We talk about her race plan for WTM this year, how she can fit more miles in than last year, and what do when things don't go the way you planned.

We also talk about what pit crew members can do to prevent their runner from getting hypothermia and how to treat it if hypothermia happens.

For more from Molly on Hypothermia, read her article for The OCR Report: Hypothermia and OCR: How to Not Freeze.

Kris Mendoza is one of the seven men to run 100 miles or more at World's Toughest Mudder. Kris is coming off his biggest Tough Mudder win ever, a 45-mile performance at the eight-hour Toughest Mudder in Norcal last month.

Kris passes along advice he received from the 2016 WTM Champ Trevor Cichosz. "The race doesn't begin until midnight." Spend the first 12 hours of the race running your own race and not worrying about what place everyone else is in. Don't burn yourself out early. Once midnight hits is when the racing happens.

Ryan Atkins has won World's Toughest Mudder five times. He is the only man to win the individual title more than once and he has done it three times. He has also won WTM as part of a four-man team and as part of a two-man team. He holds the record for most lifetime WTM miles AND most miles at an individual WTM. Ryan Atkins is the greatest World's Toughest Mudder athlete ever.

This year Ryan will be competing in the Team Relay division with Ryan Woods, Brian Gowiski, and his wife, Lindsay Webster. This will be Ryan's first time in the Team Relay category.

Ryan says the single greatest quality an athlete at World's Toughest Mudder must have is "Stoke and Desire". The race WILL get hard. It gets hard for everyone, even him. If you don't really want to be out there, and you don't have that Stoke or that Desire, the race will spit you out every time.

It won't matter how much planning you do, and how many spreadsheets you prepare, and how dialed-in your nutrition plan is. If you don't have that Stoke and Desire it will all fall apart for you.

Dr. Stuart Weiss is the worldwide Medical Director for Tough Mudder. World's Toughest Mudder 2018 looks to be one of the coldest WTM's in several years. We talk about what every runner should do to prevent hypothermia and to avoid injury while cold and tired.

Dr. Weiss advises every runner: Listen to your body. Athletes are more likely to get injured when they get tired. Pay attention to your musculoskeletal fatigue, your fueling, and your hydration to give yourself the best chance of success on course.

Dr. Weiss works with Intelligent Crowd Solutions. If you have medical training and would be interested in helping elite athletes at events like World's Toughest Mudder go to icrowd.com. There you will receive more information about how to join their team.

Elite Week continues with Allison Tai. Allison is one of the favorites to win World's Toughest Mudder 2018.

Allison says one of the ways she has been preparing for WTM 2018 by touching electric fences. That is a true story. She also says she is jealous of her friends running WTM for the first time who still have that fear of the race.

Be sure to follow Allison's progress at WTM this weekend on the World's Toughest Podcast Instagram account. Carlo Piscitello will be manning our stories all day and all night long.

Scott Brown may be the greatest OCR athlete to come out of Scotland. We haven't seen him at World's Toughest Mudder lately, but he is making his return this year in Atlanta.

Scott ran World's Toughest Mudder every year from 2012 to 2015. His best year was 2015 when he finished with 80 miles and 5th Place overall. His 80 miles was the best finish by a European that year.

After a two-year hiatus, Scott is ready to take on WTM again. Look for him near the top of the leaderboard.

Tyler Nash has ran in every World's Toughest Mudder. "And walked in them too" he says. He recently completed the Moab 240, a 240 mile race in Moab, Utah and that experience has changed his outlook on World's Toughest Mudder.

Tyler had a rough 2017 at WTM. We like to say we talk about "success and failure at the greatest event in OCR". Tyler is very honest about his race last year and the regrets he has. Following the success of his recent 240-mile race, he has a whole new outlook on running "just" 24 hours.

This is Episode #100 of World's Toughest Podcast! Thank you for listening! Celebrate with us by leaving a review on Apple Podcasts!

Amelia Boone has dominated World's Toughest Mudder like no other woman ever. No other woman has won World's Toughest Mudder more than once. Amelia has won it three times. Only three people have won back-to-back individual titles at World's Toughest Mudder. Amelia is the only woman to do it, in 2014 and 2015.

Amelia is the most high-profile athlete in the history of OCR. She talks in this episode how that still sounds odd to her. She started out the same way everyone starts out, running a Tough Mudder with her friends. Amelia talks about how WTM is a special race to her and how much she hates to miss it this year. She says to pencil her in for 2019.

Jon Albon is a two-time Champion of World's Toughest Mudder, with back-to-back wins in the team category in 2015 and 2016. Jon is one of four men to run 105 miles at World's Toughest Mudder.

Outside of WTM, Jon is a two-time Spartan Race World Champion, the reigning OCRWC World Champion every year since 2014, and he is the current Skyrunning Ultra World Champion.

Jon is not running WTM this year in order to focus on the $1,000,000 Spartan Race challenge. Jon has already won the first of three races in order to qualify for the prize. The second race is this weekend in Sparta, Greece at the Spartan Trifecta Championship.

Jon shares his thoughts on the new venue in Atlanta, has some recommendations on assessing course difficulty and has advice for first-timers when the suffering gets real in the middle of the night. "Smile and be happy. No matter what."

We talked with Gina Estrada about working Pit Crew for Toughest Mudder and World’s Toughest Mudder. Gina has worked pit for Team Four Eyes, Amelia Boone, Ryan Atkins, Austin Azar, Trevor Cichosz, Lindsay Webster, Allison Tai and more. Will got to watch Gina work a bit in Atlanta. When one of her athletes would come in she would feed them, handle their gear, and get them back onto the course like a Nascar pit stop.
 
She shares some of her secrets including having a “Pit Kit” ready and on hand at all times. Anything that her athlete could imagine they would need, she has in her Pit Kit. From batteries to nutrition to meds to chewing gum and more, she’s ready for whatever goes wrong. Building your own Pit Kit is a good first step to running a pit crew.

Molly Kenneth and Jason Nicholson join us today to talk about Jason’s story from World’s Toughest Mudder 2016. Jason ran 65 miles at WTM 2016, and finished on his feet, but due to a number of mistakes he made, he was in a Las Vegas hospital two days later. Every wrong thing he did is completely preventable, from over-hydration to taking pain medication during an ultra-endurance event. We talk about how you can make sure you don’t end up in a hospital bed for a week like Jason.

Diana Codispoti is "four-foot-five on a good day". Our host met Diana at Toughest Mudder Norcal last month and was happy to bring her on the show.

Diana has run two Toughest Mudder races this year and will be at World's Toughest Mudder next month in Atlanta. To the best of our knowledge, Diana is the first (and only) little person to compete at World's Toughest Mudder.

Diana talks about some of the unique challenges she faces completing obstacles and putting in the miles running. She also talks about her thoughts on Daytime Toughest Mudder vs. Nighttime Toughest Mudder and what her family thinks about her plan to run for 24 hours straight at WTM.
