Let's all get over the phrase, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Anyone who's been to Sin City knows that any questionably awesome stuff you get yourself into gets tucked away in your brag bag, just waiting for the optimal moment to emerge and let the world know how adventurous you are.

While there will indeed be a World’s Toughest Mudder winner, being the first to cross the finish line is far from the only reward of the day. In fact, simply staying on the 5-mile military obstacle course circuit for the entire 24-hour race is reason enough to celebrate.

On most days, Vegas’ boldest gamblers are found in exclusive high roller rooms or at no-limit tables behind heavily-guarded, back-alley doors. On November 16, 2014, however, Sin City’s most fearless risk-takers will assemble at Lake Las Vegas for one of the world’s most insane endurance races—World’s Toughest Mudder.

For the first time ever, World’s Toughest Mudder, the military obstacle course endurance race to determine which man, woman and team can cover the most miles of course in 24 hours, will be held in the sweltering heat of the Nevada desert.

In training for a Tough Mudder, most people execute their extreme workouts in gyms. Others take a more hands-on approach—hitting the great outdoors and channeling their inner animal. One Mudder, however, takes animalistic training to a whole new level.

Toeing the start line of Tough Mudder Chicago 2014, Gaby Martinez stands beside her long-term companion, (let's call him "Dave"), blending into the sea of Mudders at the 10am start wave.
