TMHQ hosts a large brunch the day after World’s Toughest Mudder. It’s a celebration of the event, the winners, and the community. After brunch Will sat down with Sue Harvey Brown, Kris Mendoza, and Kris’ parents, Katie and Danny Mendoza.
 
As part of her job for Merrell Sue is the liaison to Tough Mudder and the WTM Community. But she’s also a part of the community. She ran two Toughest Mudders in 2017 as well as World’s Toughest Mudder. She talks about her experience on the course as well as what Merrell has coming up in 2018.
 
Kris Mendoza is one of only seven people on the planet who have run 100 miles at WTM. He won 3rd place at WTM 2016 and was part of Team USA 8 that ran 120 miles at WTM 2017. He is the only OCR athlete we know of with his own theme song.
 
Katie and Danny Mendoza are Kristopher’s parents. They worked pit crew for Kris and his team. They talk about how proud they are of their son, but also how it feels as a parent to know your son is out on the course freezing cold and suffering.
 
They gave Will one of their limited edition DOZA hats. He wears it everywhere now.

Before we talk with the callers we talk about some Tough Mudder volunteer news, I messed up with Australia again, and Tough Mudder is rolling out ANOTHER new event series: Puppy Mudder. For real this time.

Kickoff Week 2018 Continues!

The morning after WTM 2017 Will Hicks took his microphone to the hotel lobby to see who he could find. He ended up talking with Zoe Szczepanek, Maria Herrera, Gaspar Vazquez, and Evan Perperis for this episode.

Zoe Szczepanek (Scha-pah-neck. You can do it) was the sideline reporter for the Facebook Live coverage of WTM 2017. She shares her thoughts on the event, the community, and her future plans in the sport.

2017 was Maria Herrera's first time at WTM. She suffered an injury but still cranked out 35 miles her first time out.

Gaspar Vazquez was also a rookie this year. He finished with 50 miles even though he started cramping up IN THE FIRST LAP.

Evan Perperis was part of a two-man team in the classic team category with Wesley Kerr. They won second place with 80 miles.

Before we even talk with our guests though, we have a pretty intense discussion of Australia. You can blame Anne Carolyn Clifford, or you can blame Will's poor pronunciation of Brisbane. (It SHOULD sound like "Bris-Bin")

Team Fat Boys is four people that Will Hicks has been friends with for over 20 years. Scott Forrester, Joel George, Nate Swanson, and Rachelle Swanson ran WTM 2017 as a National Relay Team, United States #3. They finished in 10th place overall, 3rd in the U.S.

2017 was the second WTM for Nate Swanson and Joel George and the first for Scott Forrester and Rachelle Swanson. All four members of the team are much older than the average athlete at WTM, with an average age somewhere in the low to mid 40’s. They talk about managing expectation for running WTM when you're in your 40’s.

Jan 23, 2018

This is the most obstacle-heavy episode we've ever had.

Over 90 minutes of Tough Mudder talk with Jim "Da Goat" Campbell.

Jim has been a guest on the show several times before, but we have never talked about his personal brush with death and what brought him to Tough Mudder.

After a motorcycle accident nearly killed him on a highway in Texas, Jim was written off by the paramedics on scene, by the cops that arrived later, and by the Doctors at the hospital. Jim says his personal philosophy of "Goat Tough" was born in that hospital bed.

Jim is one of the most well-known members of the Tough Mudder community and is one of the few people to have run in every World's Toughest Mudder since it began in 2011. Jim was the first man to complete 100 Tough Mudder events, leading the way for Joe Perry and Joe Anderson to join him this year.

You can find Jim on Instagram as GoatTough

Welcome back!

This is the first episode of Season Two, but it is not a typical episode. MATURE content warning.

We sat down with Ryan Woods and Evan Perperis to talk about Ryan's recent failed drug test at OCR World Championships. Ryan has admitted to taking the banned substance DHEA but has said he took it accidentally, mistaking it for the approved substance DHA. Evan has said on his Strength and Speed podcast that he believes Ryan is lying about taking the substance accidentally. Evan has said he thinks Ryan took it intentionally and got caught.

Both Evan and Ryan wanted to talk this out in a neutral forum. Matt B. Davis of ORM recommended our podcast and Evan and Ryan agreed. We are happy to provide a level playing field.

The conversation got heated. This is NOT an episode where your kids can listen along with you.

Mike Stefano joins us to talk about his experience with Alex Youngworth at World’s Toughest 2017. Mike pitted for Alex and did a mini-interview with Alex every time Alex finished a lap. Mike shares the audio from his podcast with us. It’s great to hear Alex progress from confident, to tired, to beaten up. If you’ve ran WTM before you’ve felt like Alex before. If you haven’t ran WTM, you get a little peak at what it’s like at 3:00 in the morning when you’re tired and cold and just want to die.
 
Be sure to check out the Mstefano Running podcast for more from Mike and his co-host Katelyn.

Matt B. Davis and Will Hicks got together the morning after World’s Toughest 2017 and talked about the race. Matt and Will follow the sport of OCR as closely as any two men on the planet. They share their thoughts on the athletes and the race.
 
This is the first interview in the 50-something episodes of the podcast that has not been edited. It gives it a different feel than most of the other interviews on the podcast so far. Let us know what you think of it on our Facebook page: Facebook.com/worldstoughestpod.
 
Before we talk with Matt we talk about the recent positive drug test at OCRWC. We talk about what it means for the industry in general and Tough Mudder in particular. The short story: Tough Mudder needs to start drug testing in 2018.
 
If you haven’t joined our weekly email list, you should. You can find a link at Facebook.com/worldstoughestpod. Each week we talk about Tough Mudder, World’s Toughest Mudder or something closely related. Get on that.

World's Toughest Mudder 2017 is in the books. We talk about the elite podium finishers with audio from the finish line and talk with the Women's winner, Rea Kolbl.

Rea told us one of the reasons she decided to run World's Toughest Mudder was because she was listening to our podcast and she thought, "Yeah, I could do that". And she did. And she won.

Also, why is no one else talking about this? Taylor Swift just dropped a new CD and she wrote an entire song about World's Toughest Mudder. We break down the song and what Taylor Swift thinks about certain Tough Mudder obstacles. (Spoiler: She hates to get shocked.)

We are just a few iTunes reviews away from being the #1 reviewed podcast in all of the United States. Pick us up here fellas.

Amelia Boone is the only woman to win World's Toughest Mudder three times. No other woman has won more than once.

After being unable to compete in 2016 due to a leg injury, Amelia has been training this year to run 100 miles and become the first woman to win the coveted 100-Mile Orange Jacket.

Last month Amelia suffered an injury at a race. She saw her doctor recently who gave her bad news about competing at WTM 2017. We talk about what the doctor said and how Amelia is approaching the race this year.

Molly Kenneth and Jason Nicholson join us today to talk about Jason’s story from World’s Toughest Mudder 2016. Jason ran 65 miles at WTM 2016, and finished on his feet, but due to a number of mistakes he made, he was in a Las Vegas hospital two days later. Every wrong thing he did is completely preventable, from over hydration to taking pain medication during an ultra-endurance event. We talk about how you can make sure you don’t end up in a hospital bed for a week like Jason.
