    I did the Chicago one last year and the experience is mindblowingly fun. You just have a good time, because its not all about running, there's the element of having full-body strength and complete 6 or so obstacles. There's about 7600 runners.

    In all honesty, I think you can do it! I had an injured right ankle when I did it, and came in 350/7600. If you have some upper body strength (already established), and can put in the running time now, you should be fine.

    Pace Pace Pace .. is key

    I did the Chicago run a few years ago, it was kinda tame in my opinion. So now I want to try some type of mud run.

    I'll have to plan for next year maybe. It does seem like a lot of fun though! That's a great score though! Wow!
