Anke Frederich, a WTM vet from Germany joins us this episode, but first we talk about the Tougher Mudder Championship Series and the money that Tough Mudder has been paying out in race purses this year.

Will Dean has been making the rounds on the morning news shows promoting his new book “It Takes A Tribe” and we’ve got audio from three shows. While Dean was talking to Charlie Rose he let something slip that I had not heard before.

The Colorado Springs Police Department is asking for our help in apprehending a criminal. Listen for more details.

Before we talk with Anke we read some reviews. Have you left a review for the podcast yet?

Anke Frederich lives in Germany, but she flies over to the U.S. regularly to participate in Tough Mudder events. Just this year, among many others she’s done Long Island, Chicago, Whistler, Toughest Mudder L.A. and Toughest Mudder Chicago. She worked pit crew for World’s Toughest Mudder in 2015 and ran in 2016. This November she will be the first German woman and the 2nd german overall to get her 50x headband.

Anke has done more Tough Mudders in more countries than anyone I know. She shares her thoughts on the differences between each country when it comes to Tough Mudder.

Anke loves Tough Mudder because of the community. She talks about how much the community and the people that make it up mean to her.

On today’s episode we talk with the only four people to compete in all six Toughest Mudder races this year.
 
Jim Campbell, Melissa “Sharkbait” Dugan, Sara Knight, and Mark James ran each Toughest Mudder race this year in Los Angeles, Atlanta, the UK, Philadelphia, Whistler, and Chicago.
 
You want to know which Toughest was the toughest Toughest. We start with each of them telling which of the six races they thought was the toughest.  Then we talk with them about the Toughest Mudder series as a whole, and about each race individually. We wrap up by getting each of their rankings of all six races. Which race was the toughest? Second toughest? All the way down to sixth toughest. 
 
And then finally, we assign point values to those rankings, add up the scores of each venue and give a definitive answer to the question: “Which Toughest was the toughest Toughest?
