Tough Mudder Sunshine Coast

“Let’s go take part in Tough Mudder!” they say

That’s the start of our Journey.

There was one morning, I woke up feeling YOLO and had the urged of doing something YOLO. I grabbed my phone and google-d “Skydiving in Gold Coast”, called & booked a slot. Everything happened so fast that I didn’t allow my brain to process what is to come. Had to leave the apartment ASAP before I chicken out.

I had to text Rock after my skydiving to fly in to bring me more ka-ching ka-ching! Had to survive the following 2 days with less than 100bucks. No more tourisy activities!

Once all the boys has arrived, I moved out from Beachcombers and went to Hilton Apartment (5 mins walk). The apartment is too awesome (especially the wifi!).

Lot 1 (Next to Beachcombers)
Hanlan St, Surfers Paradise, Queensland 4217, Australia

I had my breakfast at Lot 1 almost everyday in Gold Coast. Yummy omelette, excellent service! Taste a little bit like home. After chit chatting with the lady owner, found out she is a Singaporean! When the boys flew in, I brought all of them to meet my new friend.

Getting ready for Tough Mudder! Nah. We were pretty sure that we won’t be able to wake up early to take a group shot before leaving for sunshine coast so, we decided to change into our race attire right after our dinner.

10590539_10152686051836972_7875053843373211047_nWe missed Mingyun! She suppose to be part of our #teamTMD but her enlistment date clashed with the Tough Mudder race

10649699_10152686052951972_5348176964170436980_nThank You NutriFirst for sponsoring our race tee! Lots of Love from us

race_394_photo_8269879The glam-shot before our great fall!

race_394_photo_8337590The mud made us exceptionally tanned (I was in serious pain). Right after this picture, I got carried into the medic tent.

I accidentally slipped and kicked half of my toe nail out from the nail bed at the 6km mark. I had to finish the remaining 15km in pain. It was only at the 2nd last obstacle, the whole nail got ripped off from the bed. It was bleeding and the sand was rubbing against the nail bed. I could barely walk.  I’m really thankful for these boys. They were really encouraging and comforting. They took turns to carry me from the 2nd last obstacle to the last obstacle. We started it as a team, we finished it as a team. Thank You for allowing me to be part of this.

Okay, Tough Mudder Aftermath! We found mud and sand at the weirdest part of our body – butt crack, nostril, inner ear, armpits, gums. You name it, you will find it! I bathed 3 times but I will still find mud at some part of my body the following day. Washing our mud-soaked clothing right after tough mudder is as tiring as going through the  whole race course. Rinsed at least 5 times but I still find mud in our clothes! BUT… It’s worth it. Would it do again! We’re already planning where to go next.

Before Kelvyn left us to spend time the rest of the day with his family, he had instructed them to bring me to the hospital to get Tetanus Shot. Instead we….
