Our firm loves to take on new challenges, whether it be in the court of law or on our own time. That’s why we want to take a moment to congratulate Ben Heimerl and Katie Lammers for conquering the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Tough Mudder 2014 this past weekend.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Tough Mudder, participants have to traverse a 10-12 mile course littered with obstacles en route to the finish line. The original course was designed by British Special Forces as a way of training combatants to overcome both physical and mental obstacles. Aside from being physically demanding, the course also asks runners to conquer some personal fears, like:

  • Heights
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Electrical Shock

The run certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. On average, only 78 percent of individuals who start the race cross the finish line, so we were certainly excited to see Ben and Katie cross the finish line with smiles on their faces. So not only are the attorneys at Heimerl & Lammers Super Lawyers and Rising Stars, but you can also call them tough mudders! Check out a few photos from the race below!

Congratulations to both Ben and Katie. You made us all proud!
