World's Toughest Mudder 2021 is in the books. How was your race? How many miles did you get? Text Will at (619) 485-2726 and brag a little.

-

Carlo Piscitello joins the show to recap the race that was WTM 2021. Carlo ran 55 miles and was SPENT at the finish line. Will ran 50 and could not be happier.

Carlo and Will talk about their individual races and then talk through the course and the 20 obstacles (plus three at Electric Avenue) with details and their thoughts on each obstacle.

---

This conversation was recorded live in the World's Toughest Mudder Facebook community. If you are planning to run World's Toughest Mudder in 2022 you should join the group today.

You can find answers to any questions you have about gear, training, nutrition, or anything else World's Toughest-related in the WTM community group on Facebook.

Keith Allen is the creator of the 🎶 Kristopher Mendoza 🎶 jingle, a WTM vet, and one of the most talented people you will ever meet.

Keith joins Will to talk about meeting at Taco Bell, his past career as a professional musician, and the time he got 60 miles at World's Toughest Mudder and should have gone back out for 65. Five years later he still regrets not getting one more lap in.

Keith is launching a new "Custom WTM Songs" service. If you want Keith to write a song for you about your WTM 2021 experience with your milage and your story, reach out to him on Instagram.

HEADS UP: This episode isn't for the kiddos. There are a few grown-up words in the conversation.

"We are four weeks away from WTM 2021. Will you be in Laughlin? Text me when you get there (619) 485-2726. If you want to say hey and grab a picture, pre-race is best. Post-race I will be asleep." -Will

-

Elliot Rueb ran 65 miles his first year at World's Toughest Mudder. His best year was 85 miles. As part of his training for WTM 2021 he ran the Moab 240. (The 240 stands for miles. 240 *MILES*.)

Elliot and Will swap WTM stories and debate whether it is worth it to stop mid-race to use the bathroom. (Spoiler: They both say no.)
