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.
