Morgan Mckay joins us to talk about Toughest Mudder East taking place this weekend near Boston.

Morgan won 3rd Place at World's Toughest Mudder 2016. She was on pace for another podium finish at World's Toughest 2017 when she was injured coming off an obstacle. She was medically disqualified and unable to complete the race.

One month after that disappointment she ran the first ever Spartan Race 24-Hour Ultrabeast in Iceland and finished in 1st Place. We talk about her injury, Iceland, and her recent Guinness World Record for fastest 10k while carrying 100 pounds.

Morgan will be competing against OCRWC Enduro-24 Champion and fellow WTM vet Allison Tai at Toughest Mudder East. We talk about the course, the obstacles, and the weather for the race weekend.

We are halfway through the Toughest Mudder season, with four of the eight Toughest and World's Toughest events completed.

In today's episode, we talk about each Toughest Mudder so far this year. We compare each Toughest with each other and get a preliminary answer to the question: "Which Toughest is the toughest Toughest?".

We also talk with a podium finisher from each of the three most recent Toughest Mudder races.

Tom Tweddell finished second at Toughest Mudder UK. He ran 45 miles in 7:23, one minute behind the first place Tristan Steed.

Lachlan Dansie finished first at Toughest Mudder Australia. He ran 45 miles in 8:18. Lachlan has won the Australia-based 24 hour Enduro Race four years running.

Kristopher Mendoza finished second at Toughest Mudder Midwest. He ran 50 miles in 8:06, 12 minutes behind the first place Ryan Atkins. 12 minutes is the closest anyone has come to catching Atkins at a Toughest Mudder.

This is a loooong episode. It's so long that we had to delete some topics that we wanted to talk about. To listen to those deleted scenes check your feed for Deleted Scenes From Toughest Midseason Report.
