 LONDON - For many, just the thought of running 12 miles (19 kilometres) over mounds of mud and through pools of ice water is enough to make them cry. Wayne Hunter Jersey Online .Now comes something that will really make them weep.Tough Mudder, one of several obstacle course-style distance running events gaining in popularity, announced Tuesday it is adding a tear gas-experience to its repertoire this year with a stop labeled Cry Baby. Its not dangerous, according to the companys CEO, but it can pose quite a challenge for participants.The idea of doing something that sounds painful, disorientating, is definitely something thats a little scary, said Will Dean, who came up with the business plan for Tough Mudder while studying for a masters degree at Harvard. It definitely will make your eyes sting while youre in the smoke, but ultimately its safe.The reason we have it is because its intimidating.Dean was not the first to come up with the idea of asking people to pay money for the chance to challenge themselves in a military-style obstacle course. Tough Guy, for one, has been around for nearly 30 years and bills itself as The Original since 1987. Many others have followed in a similar vein, including Spartan Race and True Grit.I reinvent every year. Well, two or three times a year, said Tough Guy organizer Billy Wilson, who took Tough Mudder to court in its early days but eventually settled. I create a new obstacle for each event, sometimes two.Tough Mudder is a New York-based company that started in 2009 and this year is planning to stage 55 events in eight countries around the world. In addition to the main 10-12-mile (16-19-kilometre) challenge with about 20 obstacles for both men and women, the company also has Mudderella events for women and Mini Mudder runs for kids between 8 and 12.Crawling over logs and under wooden beams through an enclosed area filled with tear gas is the most eye-catching of the new obstacles on the slate for this years Tough Mudder events. There is also Ring of Fire, where people slide down a firemans pole through a ring set alight and into a tub of muddy water, and Birth Canal, where participants crawl under a water-filled tarpaulin that creates a sense of claustrophobia.The well-known Electroshock Therapy will also be in the mix, with participants running through wires charged with 10,000 volts of electricity.Its as much about the mental challenge as it is the physical component, said Dean, a 34-year-old British transplant who worked in counterterrorism for the U.K.s Foreign Office before heading to Boston and then New York.The first chance for runners to face the new Tough Mudder challenges, including the tear gas, will be at the Gulf Coast event near Pensacola, Florida, on March 7 at a cost of nearly $200 for a standard entry. Dean said he is expecting Cry Baby to be in place for all 55 editions in 2015.The tear gas that will be used was created by the people at Tough Mudder to give runners a sense of what its like to be faced with the chemical weapon often employed by police to disperse crowds, but the burning sensation will wear off quickly.Its best described as a tear gas-like substance, said Lucas Barclay, the vice-president of event delivery for Tough Mudder. It has no lasting effects.Tough Guy also tries to stay fresh and ahead of the competition, and Wilson is planning to commemorate a famous World War I battle at his next event near Birmingham in central England on Feb. 1.I recreated Gallipoli beach for the 100th anniversary this year, Wilson said of the battle that started in April 1915 in which more than 46,000 allied soldiers were killed among 250,000 casualties. Gallipoli has become a sacred place. Ive recreated that.The quest to give paying customers an exciting and challenging experience can come with complications and catastrophes. In April 2013, 28-year-old Avishek Sengupta died at a Tough Mudder event in West Virginia.We treat, first and foremost, safety as the most important part of our event, Barclay said. We are always reviewing our safety features.The prospect of being injured certainly keeps some people on the sidelines, but Dean said Tough Mudder is expecting its 2 millionth competitor this year.And, as he is quick to point out, its not a race against the clock. Its a test of ones inner strength.We spend so much of our lives competing with one another, Dean said. In the long run, the race is only within yourself. Jerry Noonan Jersey Online . 9 Baylor Bears just needed some time to get on track in their first game after the Christmas break. Ed Allen Jersey Online .ca! There is plenty of blame to be shared as a result of the most recent NHL player (Pittsburghs Brooks Orpik) to be evacuated from the ice on a stretcher following an ugly incident Saturday night in Boston.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Howie Kendrick celebrated his 31st birthday with three hits, including an RBI single during a four-run sixth inning as the Los Angeles Angels sent the Texas Rangers to their seventh straight loss, 5-2 on Saturday night. Kendricks third single tied it at 2 in the sixth. The Angels chased Texas starter Miles Mikolas (0-2) and pulled away for their ninth win in 10 games. The Rangers have dropped 21 of 24. They have the worst winning percentage in the majors, .404 with their 38-56 record. Jered Weaver (10-6) went seven innings, giving up two runs and four hits. He appeared to have no issues five days after leaving his previous start after only two innings because of tightness in his lower back. Joe Smith got his 14th save in 18 chances with a perfect ninth. It was his ninth consecutive appearance of at least an inning without allowing a hit. Angels left fielder Collin Cowgill left the game with blood pouring from the bridge of his nose after he was struck in the face by a pitch when he squared to bunt in the eighth. He immediately put his hand over his face and started walking toward the dugout. The Angels said he got stitches and then was taken to a hospital for further evaluation. The pitch by Matt West went over the bat and appeared to hit Cowgill flush on the face. It wasnt clear if the ball tipped off the bat before hitting Cowgill. Efren Navarrro finished the at-bat and drew a walk. Lydell Carr Jersey Online. David Freese hit a go-ahead single in the sixth. Hank Conger then had a two-run double. Mikolas allowed five runs over 5 2-3 innings in his third career start. The right-hander struck out three and walked one. Texas led 2-0 in the second after Carlos Pena had a one-out double and Robinson Chirinos was hit by a pitch. No. 9 batter Rougned Odor hit an RBI double before Chirinos came home on a groundout by Shin-Soo Choo. Conger reached on an error by Pena at first base to start the third. Conger scored on a sacrifice fly by Albert Pujols with the bases loaded, with rookie left fielder Jake Smolinski making a diving catch fully extended in the left-centre field gap to prevent more runs from scoring. An inning earlier, Smolinski made a diving backhanded catch to take a hit away from Josh Hamilton. NOTES: Kendrick was in an 0-for-10 slide before his single in the second. ... Eric Nadel, who will be honoured at baseballs Hall of Fame in two weeks for winning the Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in baseball broadcasting, was recognized in a pregame ceremony. This is Nadels 20th year as the lead voice on Rangers radio broadcasts, and his 36th with the team. He was joined on the field by the broadcasters from the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars and presented a crystal microphone. ' ' '
