Warren Area High School graduate and 2011 Penn State University graduate Zack Papalia, right, competed in the Pennsylvania #2 Tough Mudder Race May 13 in Pocono Manor. Papalia teamed with fellow 2011 graduates of Penn State’s Kinesiology Julie Stover, center, and Matt Castagnero, left. Here, the group emerges from a 20 foot plunge into a mud bath during one of the event’s obstacles. The group finished the 21-obstacle, 13-mile off-road course in two hours and 45 minutes. Papalia said the group’s “least favorite” obstacle was at mile two when they had to jump into a six-foot deep pool of ice and swim under barriers to the other side. Along the way, they confronted 10,000 volt electric shocks, ran through stretches of flaming hay bails, ran logs up ski slopes, crawled through 40-foot long drainage pipes filled with ice water, swung across greased monkey-bars over a pond, crawled through mud under barbed wire and live electric wires and helped lift each other up and over 12-foot walls. Papalia said the most rewarding part of the event was watching all the team work as complete strangers helped each other overcome the obstacles even at the expense of their own finishing time.
