I ran the Tough Mudder last April with my dad, my brother, and some of our close cousins. It was in Mannsfield, OH, and we had such a great time. After we ran it, Jason and Chrystan (two of the cousins that ran with us), had two sons that were very disappointed they couldn’t run the Mudder also. They were in 2nd and 3rd grade at the time. Instead of making them wait until they were 18 to run, Jason and Chrsytan built a smaller course at their home. The kids had some friends over and ran it as a part of the kids birthday party. However, word spread about the course, and by the time Jason and Chrystan set up to have another one the following year, they ended up with 60-plus kids at their front door hoping to join in on the fun. My friend Abbie and I showed up with video cameras and were able to film this awesome event.

    My husband and I were also inspired by our Tough Mudder participation to create a mini mudder for our son's 8th birthday party. Then, when looking for ideas we found your video. Jackpot!! You guys did an amazing job and inspired some parts of our mudder course.
