Toughest Mudder West is this weekend. This is the first Toughest Mudder of the eight-race series for 2018.

Deanna Brasz and I talk about the course, the obstacles, and what people can expect from this cold, difficult race.

Deanna was one of the stars of Tougher Mudder in 2017. She ran 10 Tougher Mudders, with seven podiums, and four first place finishes. Three times last year she ran Tougher on Saturday morning and then ran the eight-hour Toughest Mudder on Saturday night.

Before we talk with Deanna, we talk about the elite competition at Toughest Mudder West. On the men’s side Ryan Atkins is the heavy favorite. He will face competition from Kris Mendoza, Glenn Racz, and Tyler Nash, as well a few possible surprises.

On the women’s side, four reigning champions will face off. World’s Toughest Mudder champion Rea Kolbl will face off against Toughest Mudder series champion Allison Tai, Spartan World Champion Lindsay Webster, and Spartan Ultrabeast World Champion Morgan Mckay.

    I met Deanna at the Perry’s last year and I can say she is as awesome in person as she is on the course. I can see her being competitive in the community for years to come. Great show and in depth as always Will.
