Students and Faculty Conquer the Tough Mudder
Submitted by news on May 6th, 2012
Faculty and students teamed up to conquer ten miles of obstacles and all the personal fears that go along with finishing a Tough Mudder competition this morning at Mount Snow (procedes benefit the Wounded Warrior Project). Over 15,000 people tried their best on this beast of a course this weekend. The object of the game is to work as a team to finish. There are no badges or honors—iust an orange headband if you finish. But there are some beautiful, horrible, wonderful, gut-wrenching, smile-inducing moments. Our crew finished in about 3.5 hours, surviving feats of strength, endurance, and frequent dunking into frigid water and mud. The pictures tell the story best. Congratulations to Kitt' 13, Natalie '12, Noah '12, Jack '12, Nate '12, English Teachers Nathan Zweig and Annie Peterson, Cross-Country Running Coach Krzysztof Piekarski, and Kitt's Mom, Sarah Green. And kudos to Willow '12, Sophie '13, Catherine '13, Alumni Relations Manager Alison Frye, and Director of Communications Dondo Cuerdon for scrambling all over Mount Snow to photograph and cheer our stalwarts onward.
