Thanks man. It was harder than I thought it would be. Normally I can do half marathon distances without much trouble but seeing as all the running bits were in mud, and there was lots of climbing i was dead tired and very hungry by the end. Took a friend and I about 4 hours or so, but thats just a guess since we didn't time it. Weather was also cold (probably 50's or 60's?). If i did it again, I'd definitely eat way more beforehand, and I'd bring gloves (weightlifting gloves or something) because once your hands get so cold its hard to make a fist or grip something, it gets painful to climb stuff.
Worst part was probably swimming under obstacles in a river, water was freezing, instant headache as soon as I went under and it was hard to breathe once I came out. I would love to do it again somewhere warm, or at the very least, during the summer here.
