A Crazy Event for a Really Good cause (Wounded Warriors)

Crazy guys & gals run, crawl and swim across a course of mud, water, electrified fences, barbed wire and whatever to raise money for our troops.

"Organizers seem to be proud of the event's 22 percent noncompletion rate. Participants must sign a death waiver, and signs posted on the course remind them they did."

I thought it was great when the reporter was so surprised that several of the competitors were downing beers while low crawling in the mud & barbed wire!  Hey this is TEXAS!!

Also have to love the "Don't Pee on the Electric Fence" signs too!

Could be a good tune up for Bug Out Drill or Zombie-pocalypse too!

I have some friends doing that today.  Did the reporter mention that it's a 9 mile course?

I just discovered this a few days ago. I'm really pissed that I missed this one, but it looks like there is going to be one in North Texas in the Fall.

"Yes Maam!"  We Texans still show civility even when belly crawling in the mud!
