1. Boost your confidence with some workout preparation. You want to make sure you prepare with cardio and strength training. This will keep you quick and strong - two key elements to every obstacle race.
2. Get ready to get dirty. Just accept it. You're going to end this race covered in mud, sweat, creek water, etc. Own it.
