It was fun and games on the set of TODAY, this morning, but the fun was a lot more tougher than you’d think. During a segment of the show, Matt Lauer and his crew learned about the Tough Mudder challenge, a worldwide event that tests endurance and inspires teamwork.
After brushing up on their Tough Mudder knowledge, the show’s anchors competed in a mini version of the challenge themselves! From swimming through ice-cold water, to lifting heavy logs, and eventually trying to make it up a 12-foot, slipper slope, the guys and gals’ willpower was most definitely put to the test. Luckily, they were able to work together to complete the challenge…and even provided a few laughs while they were at it!
