Tough Mudder Rock Stars
Described as “probably the toughest event on the planet”, a team of dentists, exercise physiologists, podiatrists, children’s practitioner and physios from Link Health and Community completed the Tough Mudder Half on Saturday 28th October.
Held over 10km of mud and obstacle courses designed to test physical strength, stamina and mental grit, including the famous “Kiss of Mud”– an obstacle crawling through mud and under barb wire and the “Solider Sling” (yes, they carried each other on their backs), even the strongest athletes find the course very challenging.
In preparation, the team met for 6am weekly training sessions and a dinner was held to get to know each other. On the day the team travelled first class on the Link HC bus, singing along to their specially created music mix. During the course, the team worked together and helped each other up, over and under the obstacles. Even though the 3 hour course was indeed challenging – the laughs, shared experiences and encouragement they gave to each other – more than made up for it.
It was a great day, with great people – a fun achievement and
