John: Of course I can.
Shelley: But the spirit of Tough Mudder is, and I quote,

John: You’ll have to train hard. That means running, upper body workouts…
John: It will cost $165 to register. You do get a T-shirt and a head band once you complete the course, because then you would be a

John: Hey! That’s my line.
Shelley and John: Oh! Ha! Ha! Ha!
John: Are you 100% sure you want to be a Tough Mudder? Because, if you change your mind, you can’t get a refund.
Shelley: 100%. Quick! Register me before I back out.
John:… Done. Welcome to “Team Zoomers!”
