Toughest Mudder Chicago Recap Episode!
The sixth and final Toughest Mudder was held this past weekend in Chicago. Winning for the men was Ryan Atkins and for the women was Allison Tai. In addition to winning Toughest Chicago, Atkins and Tai both won the Toughest Series Championship by having the most milage over their three best Toughest races.
We spend some time talking about the men's and women's podiums and finally lock down where World's Toughest Mudder 2018 will be held. Spoiler Alert: We're not sure, but we're pretty sure.
Allison Tai joins us to talk about her win in Chicago and her Toughest Series win. She breaks down the race and talks about her plan and strategy as the race progressed. She also talks about her favorite type of mid-race fuel and why she needs to get sponsored by Kozy Shack.

Will is back from his family vacation and has a lot of news to get caught up on before he talks Tough Mudder 5k with Jay Ruggiero.
Big items in the news we talk about are the new Toughest Mudder TV shows on CBS, the location of WTM 2018 and the new category this year at WTM: National Team. Will also does a little speculation on the future of co-ed teams at World's Toughest Mudder.
Jay Ruggerio is running this weekend in the first ever Tough Mudder 5k. We talk through the 3.1 miles and the 10 obstacles that many people will be facing for the first time ever.
Jay ran WTM for the first time in 2016 and completed 20 miles. He feels like he has unfinished business with the course and is looking to complete 50 miles in 2017. To help him and a small group of friends reach that goal of 50 miles he started a Facebook group called WTM 2017 50-Mile Team. The group now has over 200 members.
