Army Reserve Soldiers motivate Southern California 2015 Tough Mudders
November 1, 2015
Ray Duffy, a massage therapist student from Oceanside, Calif., challenges himself at the Army Reserve challenge flanked by drill sergeants from 2nd Battalion, 413th Regiment, 95th Training Division at the 2015 Southern California Tough Mudder race in Temecula Oct. 31. The U.S. Army Reserve was a sponsor of the Tough Mudder this year, which meant Reserve Soldiers spotted, motivated and assisted racers at the obstacles. Duffy said he wanted to try the challenge (pushing a weighted sled, five pullups, low crawl, 20 pushups, and pulling the weighted sled back into place), because it looked like fun, and he’s a supporter of the U.S. Army.
