Agents compete in Tough Mudder

ADVERTISEMENT

Luxury Yacht Group and Big Blue Yachtwear fielded a team of runners in the 2013 Tough Mudder event in Miami in mid-March. The 12-mile obstacle course was designed by British Special Forces and, despite numerous scrapes and bruises, the team had fun, except for when traversing the obstacles involving 10,000 volts.

The always high-energy Carrie Grant who manages the front desk at LYG’s Ft. Lauderdale office finished in less than three hours.

“It was a mental challenge I was not prepared for, especially when you factor in the added obstacles of constantly getting soaked in the frigid temperature,” she said. “If it were not for my Mudder mate Lindsay, I’m not sure I would have been able to make it through. I pushed myself to the limit and am darn proud of my accomplishment.”

Luxury Yacht Group provides yacht sales, charter, management and crew placement services from offices in Ft. Lauderdale and Antibes.
