Kris Mendoza is one of seven men to run 100 miles or more at World’s Toughest Mudder. He is also one of the only seven men to ever win a Toughest Mudder race. He won Toughest Mudder West at Norcal recently.

Kris talks about his race and how it felt to win the race surrounded by his friends and family. He also shares good advice on problem solving during long endurance events such as Toughest Mudder and World’s Toughest Mudder.

Before we talk with Kris we revisit the new Age Groups for WTM 2018 with a unique idea from Katelyn Ritter of the Obstacle Running Adventures podcast and we debut a new segment of the show “You’re So Smart”. Why? Because you’re so smart.

We also give away another pair of Merrell Trail Running shoes. Have you entered to win yet? It’s free. Text the word TOUGH to the number 228-28.
