On Saturday, weekend warriors from all around the Mid-Atlantic region descended on a small town in West Virginia to do a Tough Mudder race. As one runner discovered, among those who showed up to trudge through the mud, climb obstacles and get shocked by an electrical current was none other than Ravens coach John Harbaugh. Because NFL coaches don’t put themselves through enough torture the rest of the year. I don’t think we have to worry about John Harbaugh making a big deal about finishing the race – as some unfortunately tend to do – as he has another recent accomplishment that he has every right to be obnoxious about.
Worthwhile anecdote from the racer who spotted Harbs:
Funniest moment during the race was when his group was here (orange shoes) and John went to jump over the log without help (Most people slowly pull themselves up). He hit his stomach straight onto the log and knocked the wind out of himself. However, he did get right back up and was a good sport and was talking with me about the super bowl for a bit afterwards.
