Tough Mudder

(Just for Fun, Class of 2013) Permanent link   All Posts
 Jessica Ward People often ask what cadets do during their free time and weekends. Although sometimes all that we want to do is go to a sponsor family’s home and sleep, this past weekend the crew team did something incredibly fun. Since Friday was Veteran’s Day we didn’t have school, we had a three day weekend. The women’s crew team went to New Jersey and stayed at different people’s houses until Sunday when we competed in the Tough Mudder. For those of you who don’t know what the Tough Mudder is, I recommend you look it up. Basically, it is 12 miles through mud and obstacles and a great way to hang out with friends, stay in shape, and have a good time. Tough Mudder is also a supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project so it was neat to see members of the military there to support each other and their friends. I’m still sore and bruised from all the crawling and climbing, but it was totally worth the experience to hang out with some of my closest friends and crawl through mud, run through fire and swim in icy water. So next time people ask me what cadets find to do on their weekends, I will have another great story to tell.

As always, feel free to email me, I love hearing from you all!
