Toughest Mudder Philly Preview!
Philadelphia is the site of the fourth of six Toughest Mudder races. Races in Whistler and Chicago will take place later this year.
After a bit of Tough Mudder news and a plug for friends-of-the-show Pis n' Cox, we talk to Kris Mendoza.
Kris competed in Toughest L.A. and missed qualifying as an Elite Contender by less than two minutes. He talks about the disappointment he felt in L.A. and his plans for Toughest Mudder Philly.
We also talk about his performance at World's Toughest Mudder. His first year was 2014 where he completed 50 miles. In 2015 he completed 80 miles, and in 2016 he became one of only six people to complete 100 miles at World's Toughest Mudder.
Kris talks about how he went from zero running background to 50 miles, to 75+, all the way up to 100 miles. If you hit 50 miles at WTM last year and are chasing 75 this year you'll want to hear his advice.
