I know mud runs and obstacle races of all kinds are becoming more and more popular, but I didn’t realize they were becoming more popular than marathons. Why is that, do you think? Do people think they are more doable? Maybe they don’t feel they have to train as hard?
Until I complete my first full marathon, I’m not sure whether I prefer obstacle races or marathons. I do think Obstacle Course Racing would make a badass Olympic event, though!
What do you think? Are you and mudslinger or a marathoner?
