Donald Kannenberg Jr., a partner at Fried-
man, Kannenberg & Company in Farmington,
braved plunging into a shipping container
filled with ice water, a 30-foot free fall into
a pond, and even electric shock while com-
pleting "Tough Mudder" events recently, in-
cluding the Tough Mudder New England at
Mount Snow in Vermont and the Tough Mud-
der Tri-State at Raceway Park in New Jersey.
Tough Mudder events are "hardcore obstacle
courses designed to test all-around strength,
stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie."
Obstacles include mud, fire, ice water, wires
charged with 10,000 volts of electricity, 12-
foot walls, and underground mud tunnels.
"These events are all about teamwork and
camaraderie and not about individual perfor-
mance," Kannenberg explained. "My teams
in each event went off together helping each
other as well as others throughout the event."
