Disclosure: Momma To Go is a Tough Mudder Affiliate. As always, opinions are all my own.
Last spring, I received a Facebook notification that someone tagged me in a post, asking me to join their Tough Mudder team. Despite having no idea what Tough Mudder was, I instantly replied, HELL NO. I’m not really tough and I don’t love mud. Fast-forward a few weeks, when working out with some of those signed up for the race, the trainer complimented me and said “Harmony, you are so strong.”
That really resonated with me. And for some reason connected me back to the Tough Mudder invite.
I went home and signed up.
And honestly, it was one of the best things I HAVE EVER DONE. So I am excited to share my Tough Mudder Long Island experience with you, to give readers my best Tough Mudder Tips, and to encourage you to check out this awesome event!
Tough Mudder Long Island
Last week, as I was completing a 9-mile run on the treadmill, I started brainstorming ideas for upcoming posts. I want to write about our trip to Legoland, I still have some Hawaii posts to put out and I need to write something about long flights with kids (I have awesome tips!!!). But, I realized, first and foremost, I must write my thoughts on training for a half-marathon.
Disclaimer: I have two successful half-marathons under my belt. I am currently training for my third, which is in two weeks. I am not a physician, nor am I a personal trainer. I am just sharing my amateur experience. I hope you realize that if I can do it, so can you!
Half-Marathon Training Tips
I am so excited to write my first fitness related post! I have so many ideas for fitness articles, and inspired by the Half-Crazy Mama (who has an awesome blog reviewing all of her races), I first want to share my review of the AmeriHealth NJ Atlantic City Half Marathon.
