He specializes in tax, retirement, and investment planning. Outside his professional pursuits, Cubby Bice enjoys competing in athletic competitions like Spartan Races and the Tough Mudder.
Tough Mudder organizes 5K, 10K, and 15K obstacle course races throughout the United States. Below is a look at three of the obstacles included in these races.
The Block Ness Monster — Designed by a Tough Mudder intern, this obstacle features a series of 500-pound blocks rotating in water. Participants have to work together to push and rotate the blocks so that others can clear the obstacles.
Mudderhorn — The Mudderhorn is a 40-foot tall triangular wall covered with a net. Participants have to climb up the wall on the net and down the other side. Leg and grip strength are crucial.
Arctic Enema — Whereas most of the Tough Mudder obstacles are physical in nature, the arctic enema is entirely a mental challenge that involves managing and overcoming extreme cold. Participants are dropped into a 34-degree Fahrenheit ice pit with more than 20 tones of ice. The most challenging part is having to enter the pit a second time.
