This is the most obstacle-heavy episode we've ever had.

Over 90 minutes of Tough Mudder talk with Jim "Da Goat" Campbell.

Jim has been a guest on the show several times before, but we have never talked about his personal brush with death and what brought him to Tough Mudder.

After a motorcycle accident nearly killed him on a highway in Texas, Jim was written off by the paramedics on scene, by the cops that arrived later, and by the Doctors at the hospital. Jim says his personal philosophy of "Goat Tough" was born in that hospital bed.

Jim is one of the most well-known members of the Tough Mudder community and is one of the few people to have run in every World's Toughest Mudder since it began in 2011. Jim was the first man to complete 100 Tough Mudder events, leading the way for Joe Perry and Joe Anderson to join him this year.

You can find Jim on Instagram as GoatTough
