The pictures and stories of the Tough Mudder two weeks ago are in and circulating. Nicolette provided some information to the Record Courier regarding the event in an effort to give lots of people some recognition of their hard work. Unfortunately as is always the case, the media reported some inaccuracies. The story states that "Thirteen members of CrossFit Carson Valley participated in the the Tough Mudder Challenge" when actually 8 members were from CFCV and 5 from Carson City Strength and Conditioning. The story also reports that "We go through intense training every day just as part of the program" which is true, but Nicolette originally stated this in the first person (I).
The other significant thing that did not make the story is that Mark (the owner of CCSC and longtime and current member of CFCV) organized and coached the team. From what I understand he did an excellent job of it too by assuring that all team members cleared all obstacles before continuing on himself.
The bottom line is that I appreciate the efforts of Nicolette and all the CFCV members who participated but wanted to assure the members of CCSC and Mark also received their recognition. And thanks for representing CFCV Tough Mudders!
