World's Toughest Mudder: 24 hours with Team Rubicon.

Last fall, I was asked by Team Rubicon to head down to Fairburn, GA (just outside of Atlanta) with a dozen of their athletes to document their experience during the 24 hour World's Toughest Mudder competition. As you'd expect, the competition lasted 24 straight hours from noon to noon over Veteran's Day weekend. Roughly 1,500 competitors took part and covered between 10-100 miles during those 24 hours. Unexpectedly, the conditions became abnormally cold with temperatures dropping into the mid-20's throughout the night causing many of the obstacles to be covered in frost/ice. In the end, I myself covered over 21 miles during the event hauling my cameras and lenses around the course and I

made several life-long friends as well.
