so omg ew this lady who aparently doesn't like me for my boyfriend (doesn't think I am good enough for him because he is wicked fit and I am not) told my boyfriend he should do tough mudder but that I wasn't invited! (we won't get into her issues right now because ... that would take all day lol)

So the conversation was between a group of people and they were bringing up all different things and I don't know what they are.

there was: tough mudder

another one that cleverly used the word MUD

something like: color run?

something like: fire run

supposedly they all have tons of obsticles, not just running. I just don't know what they are, how much they cost, where I can find them, and so on.

If you know any other things that are similar, please let me know. I am just curious about all these things.

They are all races.  You can look them up on line.  There are a lot of obstacle course races out there with differing degrees of difficulty, as well as, fun run type events.

Yea I was pregnant last year so I couldn't do it. My "trainer" is pregnant this year (due in October) so it's gonna be awhile before I'm gonna feel comfortable enough to do it. The group that did go last year had a blast!!

Tough Mudder- obstacle mud run that's super intense!  I'm doing the one in Tahoe on Saturday!

There are A LOT of mud runs out there that use that term in their names.

Color Run/Color Me Rad- relaxed 5Ks that aren't timed, where volunteers throw colors on you.  I did one in May- as a serious runner, it wasn't a challenge for me at all, but it's a great first race if you've never raced before.

Fire run- usually obstacles involving fire

You can also google obstacle races in your area and see what comes up!
