Walter Lyon joins us to talk about World's Toughest Mudder and Team Four Eyes.
Before we talk to Walter, Will gives us an update on Tough Mudder Arizona along with an audio clip of Clinton Jackson encouraging Neil and Amanda Gerard through Electroshock Therapy. After you hear the audio, track down the video. It's great.
Chad Trammell talked with Matt B. Davis on the Obstacle Racing Media podcast. We listen to some clips of the interview and break down Chad's schedule vs. Ryan Atkins schedule. As it stands, Chad and Ryan will only face each other at one more Toughest Mudder, possibly two depending on how Ryan does in the Spartan US Championship Series.
We also get a quick recovery update from Amelia Boone. Spoiler: She did a Spartan Race last week and had a great time.
Team Four Eyes is made of Walter, Joe Van Dyke, KC Hereth, and occasionally features guest stars Amelia Boone and Cassie Harris. KC is the motivator. Walter says “He can motivate a rock into doing a somersault”. Joe Van Dyke is the ironman triathlete on the team. He’s got 130 triathalons under his belt. He NEVER gets tired. Walter is the team captain/secretary. Walter prefers the title of captain instead of secretary though.
Walter has been at every WTM since 2011. He is one of just a few people who can say that. He talks about how difficult that first year was, and how 2014 was similar to 2011.
Walter also ran Tougher Mudder this weekend in Arizona. We talk about the competitive series and his plans for Toughest Mudder this year.
