We know how it is. You've had the Tuscarora Fall and Winter brochure on your coffee table for the last few months and you've been thinking about the Men's Retreat. Then you started seeing some stuff online about this event called the Tusc Mudder. You're not sure if you're really into the idea of climbing over walls and getting muddy.
But today I want to tell you why you should DEFINITELY try the Tusc Mudder at this year's Men's Retreat. You will have the time of your life, feel a sense of accomplishment, and fellowship in the process!
Here is a list of 10 reasons you should try the 2017 Tusc Mudder:
1. Healthy Lifestyle
You don't just run during the Tusc Mudder. You run, jump, swing, swim, roll, and crawl. You'll be doing exercises you never imagined when you signed up for that gym membership a few years ago. And coming to Tuscarora for the exercise opportunities - what a great excuse!
Nothing brings people closer together than fierce competition - that's the saying right?
3. Victory (in Christ!)
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." - Phillippians 4:13
4. Ice Cream
There's lot's of opportunity for refreshment at the Men's Retreat. If you're running the Tusc Mudder no one can make you feel guilty about ice cream from the snack shop twice a day, everyday.
5. Instagram Opportunities
Pictures or it didn't happen.
6. Bragging Rights
When you get home, all you need to say is you finished. No one, not even your family, needs to know how long it took or how many people helped you. Speaking of...
7. Serving Opportunities
Sometimes, in order to finish the obstacles you may need to use team work. When you're hoisting someone over a wall or pushing them through a mud pit think of it as giving your brother a helping hand. Or in other words, "Loving thy neighbor."
8. Bible Lesson
After the race is over, it's a great opportunity to fully appreciate the lesson of 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
9. Expending Your Horizons
You will definitely see parts of Tuscarora you never have before! From the sewage treatment plant to the bottom of the pool - the possibilities are endless.
10. Finally using your running shoes for, you know, running.
Let those shoes fulfill their purpose!
Everyone who finishes the race will go home with a custom made TUSC MUDDER shirt. This is an exclusive annual event, you don't want to miss the opportunity to get your hands on one.
