Last weekend former Yankee intern and “Diary of a Ski Patrolman” blogger, Josh Allen joined thousands of participants at Vermont’s Mount Snow for what has been called “the world’s toughest race.” Tough Mudder challenges are springing up around the country (this was the first in New England” and it highlights perseverance, teamwork, and the ability to overcome obstacles more than speed or winning.

The next Tough Mudder in New England is next July, again at Mount Snow.
