No man or woman left behind. In 3 months a small team of individuals from all functions of the Pangaea business will be taking on the “Tough Mudder”.
I probably should have realised from the name this wasn’t a run in the park (literally). I have since seen it described as: “a series of hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle race – mud run events designed by British Special Forces to challenge the toughest of the tough.”
We are a fairly competitive bunch of individuals and I think this is what has got most of us into this dilemma. No backing out now.
What is great about this event though is the team spirit that flows through the day and all the events. We are competitive, but I feel we are an exceptionally strong team and this will put us in a great position to take on our first Tough Mudder.
I know for myself, and I imagine for everyone else there are 1 or more challenges that put us really out of our comfort zone. I am not a big fan of heights, water or dark spaces (for those of you who have seen the obstacles – you will know this does not end well for me!)
Part of what attracts me to this event is why I love being part of Pangaea. The team spirit helps us achieve things that would otherwise not be possible. We are often out of our comfort zone, but those who have been there will know, when you come out of that it is a buzz you can’t describe.
How we work as teams determines our success. We are continually evolving this and will continue to do so.
Tackling Tough Mudder is no different than any other tactical goal we have. We defined an OKR and stretch ourselves to what can be possible:
Push our limits completing the EXTREME Tough Mudder
- Everyone to attempt all 20 obstacles
- Start and finish as one team
- Everyone lives to take on a new challenge in 2018
It will take incredible team spirit to support everyone in facing their fears and tackling every obstacle. The feeling of us all crossing the finish line together is very exciting.
Training starts today 🙂
