Hunter McIntyre is often called a “character” or a “bad boy” or a “big personality”, and those things may be true. But he’s no dummy. You can hear in this conversation between Hunter and Will that Hunter takes his training seriously. Hunter has his nutrition dialed in. His job is winning races and he takes his job seriously.
 
Hunter talks about training for and winning TMX, his experience as the longtime champion on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, and the job that changed the course of his life. He also has thoughts on Spartan Race’s pro team, Joe DeSena’s vision for the future of OCR, and much, much more.
 
You can jump straight to our talk with Hunter McIntyre at 21:09.

Jesi Stracham is the first person, man or woman, to complete the Tough Mudder Holy Grail in a wheelchair. To earn your Holy Grail you must complete a 10-mile Tougher Mudder, an eight-hour Toughest Mudder, and the 24-hour World’s Toughest Mudder in the same calendar year.

Jesi was a motorsports athlete when she was injured. She was a passenger on a motorcycle when a car made a U-turn into her. She ended up paralyzed from the chest down.

Jesi has a show on YouTube called Wheel With Me. She records herself going about her life in a wheelchair. Recently she has been training in the sport of Curling. She has aspirations of making the US Paralympic team for 2022.

For more information about Jesi's Wheel With Me foundation visit wheelwithmefoundation.org

Before we talk with Jesi we talk about the latest Tough Mudder news. The biggest news: Tough Mudder announced that all Tough Mudder courses this year will be run on a five-mile course. Tough Mudder Full participants will run two laps. Tough Mudder Half runners will complete one lap.

Ian Panter ran 30 miles at World’s Toughest Mudder in 2016. The last eight of those miles were on a broken foot. In 2017 after running Tough Mudder, he was a passenger in a car getting a ride back to his hotel. He was planning on running Toughest Mudder Philly that night and wanted to catch a quick nap before start time at midnight. As his car was leaving the venue he was hit by another car. Ian almost died from the accident and even nine months later is not 100% fully healed.
 
Ian talks about how he is doing now, the five months of his life he has no memory of, and the love and support he received from the World’s Toughest Mudder community during his recovery.

Tough Mudder announced 26 cities will host a Tough Mudder 5k in 2018. We talked with Jay Ruggiero about the first ever Tough Mudder 5k in this bonus ep from last year.

---

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.

Adriane Alvord joins the show to share her story.

Adriane finished in 9th Place at her first WTM in 2016. After qualifying as an Elite Contender at Toughest Mudder Philly she had high hopes for 2017. The race didn't end up working out the way she hoped, after a nasty fall from Stage 5 Clinger left her with a concussion and unable to run in a straight line.

Adriane has competed in the past two seasons of American Ninja Warrior and has high hopes to compete again this year. She also placed third at the BFX-24 race that was won by Adriane's "concussion buddy" Morgan Mckay.

Adriane also talks about her Dressage business. (It rhymes with Massage.) She says the best way to explain Dressage is "Ballet with horses".

Most people at World's Toughest Mudder write their names on their bibs, or a nickname. Adriane writes "Unbroken". Adriane escaped a violent abusive relationship and writes that on her bib to remind herself and to show others that she is still Unbroken.
