Whether you’re looking to impress your muddy match, or trying to respark the romance with your love with the best date ever, love flourishes on the Tough Mudder course. These 5 reasons prove it.
1. Tough Mudder Pick-Up Lines Are Game-Changers
At a Tough Mudder, ‘dirty’ talk takes on a whole new meaning. From “You got a race bib? Cause I need your number,” to “have you tried Kiss of Mud yet?” with a subtle wink, the pick up lines are endless. Lock eyes with your lover as you each take on Stage 5 Clinger for a moment of romance. Or, try saying “Hey, baby you’re giving me the shivers” after Artic Enema without bursting out laughing.
2. There Is No Winner
If you and your muddy-mate let competition get the best of you, have no fear because there is no winner. We don’t have a time chips, and we don’t believe in clock watching (unless you’re running in the Competitive Series on a #QuestForTheGrail). Tough Mudder isn’t like other runs, your finishing time isn’t top priority – fun is.
3. You’ll Get Outside
There are plenty of benefits to working out with your significant other, and they go way beyond getting sweaty together. Scientists at Santa Clara University reported that people who work out with a partner they are comfortable with are more energetic and happier than those that work out alone.
4. Everyone Looks Better In Mud
What’s more romantic than cozying up to Kiss of Mud 2.0 with your love? Nothing. Plus, if all-muddy-everything is the baseline, you can only go up from there.
5. Cleaning Up Will Be Extra Fun
After you’ve earned your headband, shed your muddy gear for your new Finisher’s shirt, and donated your mud-soaked sneaks, it’s on-site shower time. Legionnaires know that after 10 muddy miles, you could use someone to help you hose off 10 miles worth of mud. Plus, you know what they say: save water, shower with a fellow Mudder.
