BROOKLYN, N.Y., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following an overwhelmingly positive debut in 2013, Mudderella, the company curating outdoor obstacle courses for women by women, announced today its 2014 U.S. events calendar. Encouraging women to "Own Your Strong," Mudderella inspires participants to test stamina, willpower and strength by completing a 5-7 mile long course featuring 12-15 obstacles.
In 2014, Mudderella builds on the excitement from the inaugural Poconos event, in which thousands of participants tackled obstacles testing balance, agility, and strength, with six brand new events in cities across the country. Mudderella events encourage participants to take on a new challenge and get outside for a high-energy, daylong experience to be shared with like-minded, strong women. Registration is now open for the following five 2014 Mudderella events, with a sixth event coming soon:
- New York / New Jersey: May 10, 2014
- Chicago: May 31, 2014
- Boston: September 6, 2014
- Virginia: September 20, 2014
- SoCal: October 4, 2014
To reinforce participants' focus on personal aspirations and fitness, Mudderella events are not timed. Teamwork is essential to completing the course; the events are about people coming together to overcome obstacles and have fun. Men are encouraged to the join teams in support of their wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, friends, and coworkers, or to come out as spectators.
"Mudderella is about empowering women to take pride in their strength – inside and out. We are thrilled to be continuing the mission of Mudderella and expanding our footprint for 2014 to give more women the chance to participate and 'Own Your Strong,'" said Cristina DeVito, Chief Executive Officer of Mudderella. "We want our Mudderellas to remember that they are stronger than they think, through an awesome experience and day."
Mudderella is honored to support Futures Without Violence, a national nonprofit that aims to prevent and end domestic violence by standing with survivors and developing innovative programs and policies that engage new allies as partners in the solution. By raising awareness and support for this organization, Mudderella strives to do its part and contribute to a future free of violence.
The day begins with Stretch + Strengthen, getting participants pumped up with a warm-up. Upon crossing the finish line, participants receive a Mudderella sport band, a protein bar, and an icy Strongbow Hard Cider to celebrate with friends. Teams can then freshen up and relax at the popular Rinse + Revive station, which features showers, food, music and entertainment.
Mudderella obstacles are designed to encourage fitness, drive empowerment, and spark teamwork. Obstacles include participant favorites from last year such as Hat Trick, in which you jump off a trampoline, crawl up a cargo net, and slide into water. Another obstacle, Wheels in Motion, sends you across swinging tires, designed to test agility and core strength. Mudderella is also excited to introduce new obstacles to challenge both new and returning Mudderellas.
Mudderella, LLC was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Brooklyn, N.Y. Mudderella events are obstacle course challenges that empower women to own their strength, work together, and have fun. Participants are encouraged to "Own Your Strong" as they take on 12-15 obstacles testing balance, strength, agility, endurance, willpower, and overall fitness while encouraging teamwork and fun across a 5-7 mile long course. Mudderella believes in three truths: 1) You are stronger than you think you are, 2) There is more to life than going to the gym, and 3) You deserve an awesome experience.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
