Thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group & Edge of Tomorrow I will be attempting a Tough Mudder on September 28th with a host of other teammates to form our version of the “J-Squad” as seen in the film, with a range of team members from celebrities, YouTube personalities, top tier media, fitness gurus and of course, contestants from American Ninja Warrior! Wish me luck, I’ll need it!

A Tough Mudder is not going to be easy, but I look forward to test myself. Take a look after the jump what I should expect and what you should expect if you take part in one yourself in the future!

Edge of Tomorrow & Tough Mudder – A Match Made In Heaven!

On October 7, Tom Cruise will return to DVD & Blu-Ray with the hit Edge of Tomorrow and the fine folks at the WB have decided to invite me to take part in a Tough Mudder and be in my own “J-Squad” and if I can survive the onslaught I will know exactly what Tom’s character felt in the film as he battled an alien race like none other, thankfully I’ll be doing it once and not over and over again like his character had to take part of as the movie went on.

The movie is awesome and this experience will be equally as great. So stay tuned to this spot because on Monday September 29 I will be adding to this story on how my experience of all the pain and all the fun affected me. Stay tuned!

What Exactly Is A Tough Mudder?

What is a Tough Mudder? Explained on their website, a Tough Mudder is described as this, “Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test all-around strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit. Tough Mudder is Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet. Probably.”

Consider myself scared, excited and everything in between. And feel free to keep track of my journey on our social media accounts. It should be an interesting ride to say the least!

So HollywoodLifers, Wish me luck, purchase Edge of Tomorrow because it is a spectacular movie and when Tough Mudder is in your part of town, do it! Test yourself, see what you can possibly achieve that you never thought you’d be able to achieve!
