They're two Tough Mudders
NOT many people would choose to go through five hours of slogging through thick mud and specially-designed obstacle courses filled with fences giving off electric shocks.
But Fraser Coast women Jeanette Maynes and Michelle Tayler did just that when they took part in the Tough Mudder event, held in Sydney on September 23.
The 20km long obstacle course, designed by British Special Forces, was designed to test the stamina, strength and mental grit of the competitors.
The girls were left feeling proud of their achievement, describing how they had to climb over walls three metes high, through underground tunnels filled with mud, a fire pit and an ice bath.
The girls burnt 2120 calories during the event and were helped along the way by others taking part in the event.
The girls only missed out on completing two tasks throughout the day and Jeanette said their training leading up to the event definitely paid off.
