Jesi Stracham and Brandon Winfield join the show to talk about life with Spinal Cord Injury.
 
Jesi is the first (and still only) person to complete the Tough Mudder Holy Grail in a wheelchair. She has done it twice. Jesi runs the Wheel With Me Foundation where they assist Spinal Cord Injury patients with the life skills needed to live a full and productive life.  
 
Brandon is the CEO of iAccess Life, a mobile company that is the "Yelp of Accessibility". App users can rate, review, and research the accessibility of locations they visit.
 
iAccess Life and Wheel With Me are working with the Purposity mobile app to get 600 followers. Once they reach that benchmark they will be able to begin using Purposity to raise funds for survivors of Spinal Cord Injury. You can help them (for free!) by downloading Purposity and following Wheel With Me.

Tough Mudder is rolling out the new Tough Mudder Challenges for 2020. What is Tough Mudder Challenges? We talked with Kyle McLaughlin, the CEO of Tough Mudder to find out.

Each month you will be given a new set of Tough Mudder Challenges. You will have four main challenges for each month, with three weeks to complete them. There will be one challenge in each of these four categories:

  • Distance
  • Elevation
  • Workout
  • Obstacle

In addition, each of the three weeks will have "Bonus" Challenges. There will be four challenges each week and you get to pick the two you would like to do.

Four main challenges plus a total of six bonus challenges for a total of 10 challenges to complete each three-week session.

When you successfully complete your challenges for the month you will earn new Tough Mudder Swag, including the new 10th Anniversary Headband, the 2020 Tough Mudder finisher shirt, and a monthly Tough Mudder Challenge coin. The Challenge coin is entirely new to Tough Mudder and you will be able to earn a new one each month.

The cost for Tough Mudder Challenges is $40/month. If you pay for all six remaining months of 2020, the price is $155 and includes a display case for your six Challenge coins. There is also a $15/month "digital-only" option if you aren't interested in the coins and other award swag.

Kyle McLaughlin went from being the President of Tough Mudder to just another guy like you and me to President of Tough Mudder in about six months.

Kyle has worked closely with Joe De Sena and Spartan to lead Tough Mudder through bankruptcy and the acquisition of Tough Mudder by Spartan. Without Spartan, and without Kyle McLaughlin, it is our opinion that Tough Mudder as we know it would no longer exist.

We are happy to welcome back to the show Kyle McLaughlin.

The last three weeks have been a roller coaster of emotion for fans of Tough Mudder. This week's episode opens with an update from Will about where Spartan Race stands with a purchase of Tough Mudder.

We also talk with (ahem) 🎵Kristopher Mendoza🎵about his second-place finish at World's Toughest Mudder in 2019 to his arch-nemesis Trevor Cichosz. Kris weighs in with his take on Spartan buying Tough Mudder.

Kris has finished on every step of the podium at World's Toughest Mudder. He is the second man to do that. The first? Trevor Cichosz.
