Woman V. Workout

I had the pleasure of training Lauren Berlingeri for the PA Tough Mudder. We met up at a 24 Hour Fitness in Manhattan. I had a blast. The production and film crew were great and Lauren is no joke. Not only is she a model but she is tough as nails. At the end of the Mudder she did have a nasty bout of hypothermia though.

    I did my first TM back in spring of ’10 at the ski resort just south of Allentown. I thought after doing that one that it was pretty easy. But these events seemed to have progressively gotten harder. Now after 3 years I am returning to the TM arena on 6/1/13. Now after seeing your video with Lauren………..OMG!!
    My sabbatical was all my doing. A lot of mental anguish capped off by completing my first (and only) half-marathon. I was drained. Here I am nearly 3 years from my TM anniversary and going into this event completely cold. No training. Mainly for me it will be a mental thing to remind myself how weak I’ve become and why I got away from this person once before. And though I told myself that I would never come back, I look in the mirror and there he is again.
    TM13 will hope to set me straight and get this ass back in gear again. I need the power. I need the strength. I need the energy. Strike all that. I WANT IT!!!!
    Thanks for the video. It is definitely a very motivational tool. Keep up the good work Andy. :) b

      Hey Ryan, I was there at Bear Creek in 2010 too. Things sure have changed. You sound motivated and that is awesome. But, don’t look at this as you are either a superhero or you are a waste. Those are two extreme points of view. Cut yourself some slack and look at each day, scratch that, each HOUR, as a fresh start. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. You’ve heard the old phrase, “Life is a marathon, not a sprint.”. Good luck, pal!

        I am competing in my first tuff mudder and was wandering what is the best clothes to wear.

          Hey Steve,
          Avoid cotton. Any type of quick dry clothes are the best. Same with socks. Make sure you wear some shoes that have proper drainage as well. Good luck!
