There are two reasons that athletes get more accolades than moms for their physical feats

  • Athletes’ parts don’t sag
  • Athletes don’t get amnesia

If women went into pregnancy and childbirth remembering exactly what was in store for them, they’d probably make up impressive sounding names for that first week of motherhood, like Iron Nipples, or Hot Coals in My Guts.

So please forgive me if my recent experience with the endurance event of the century leaves me unimpressed with your Tough Mudder.  Until the hormones kick in and my memory is wiped clean, I happen to know what a Tough Mudder really is ;o)
