If you’ve been reading Live Life Active for a while now, you’ve seen me do TONS of mud runs (Warrior Dash, Rebel Race, Patriot Challenge and more) because I absolutely love them, but now I’ve added one more to my belt. The Rugged Maniac!
There’s something about getting totally dirty and jumping through mud that a part of me just loves. I guess it brings back memories of playing soccer in the rain and just having fun with it. Well I saw that the Rugged Maniac was coming to Charleston, SC and when I saw a Groupon come out for it, I jumped on the deal right away. I think I paid $69 with the Groupon (The lowest you can get it for is $45 a year in advance and it ends up costing around $100 if you sign up on race day).
Before running, the only thing I had heard about the Rugged Maniac was that Mark Cuban was a partner of it and if you know me, you know I LOVE Mark Cuban and some Shark Tank action I knew if Mark Cuban had any say in the design of this course, that it was going to be tough..and boy, was I RIGHT!
The Charleston race took place on March 12th …
