In which I get very dirty.

So a few weeks ago, my friend Sally (pictured here on the far left) asked me if I would like to do a mud run. "Sure," I said, without really thinking about. "Sounds like fun." I didn't really know what I got myself into. This mud run was a 3.5 mile run through the woods which also included 35 or so obstacles you had to go over, under, or through. Numerous 6 foot walls that you had to get over. A run through up a nice section of creek. You get the idea. Did I mention that I have almost no upper body strength? Thankfully, the race is run in a team and I had all these nice people to help me make it.



A few pictorial highlights:
First obstacle.

Yes, this mud pit was deep enough to swim in. yummy.

The big wall.


The last mud crawl


The finish line. Surprisingly, I am actually wearing that same shirt right now, thanks to the modern marvel that is our washing machine. We did have a great time, all the bruises I'm STILL finding notwithstanding.

Anyone in for next year??
