True Life: I’m Doing A Tough Mudder” premieres tomorrow at 4/3c on MTV. If you’re not familiar with Tough Mudder, where have you been? We covered it over a year ago. It’s “Probably The Toughest Event On The Planet,” according to their website.

The show follows three competitors as they train for and compete in a Tough Mudder. Like most “True Life” episodes, each of the main characters have unique backgrounds and motivations. “Girly-girl” Amanda is doing it so people will take her more seriously. “Super-competitive” Brett wants to best his twin, so he’ll have bragging rights for life. And Noah, who is a double-amputee, wants to prove he can do by himself.

“Chubby blogger” Ryan McKee decided to run Tough Mudder because I thought it’d make a funny video (and I knew there’d be free Dos Equus there). The promoters offered to let me do it for free if I covered it on Guy Code Blog. But they didn’t tell me that until a few days beforehand, so I didn’t train, I didn’t prepare and I didn’t even get a good night’s sleep beforehand. The result is the following video:

If that doesn’t inspire you to sign up for the next Tough Mudder, maybe the preview of tomorrow’s show will.
