500,000 Gallons of Mud?! Tough Mudder Lives Up to its Name

ARLINGTON -- 500,000 gallons of mud is challenge enough, but Tough Mudder isn't just about the mud. These dare devils are wading through water, ducking under barbed wire, and have to sprint through an electroshock field to reach the finish line.

That was the pain and the twisted pleasure served up at Arlington's Viridian DFW complex Saturday with men, women, and child putting themselves to the test.

Teamwork is the driving force in this British Special Forces designed contest with prizes and a cold beer waiting at the finish line.
