Test {MUD} Run

by Heather

Well, it’s D-day.

As in I’ll know if I’ll be able to do this upcoming triathlon or not.

If I can’t survive a 5K, I clearly can’t double that in a month. As much as I want to do the tri, I also want to keep my leg function. You know, working legs. Kind of a big deal.

Of course my knee has been killing me in mental anticipation…

But if I can do it….it’s ON.


So, here goes a race like no other. This week and last night’s rain have guaranteed the mud run will in fact be…muddy.

The electronic race packet amused me. Select phrases:


And pictures of course construction have been going up on their Facebook page….

And of course, my favorite line of the race packet email:

fire obstacle is on

Should be an interesting day…


Time to go get muddy!!!

I've never done an obstacle run before but that sounds like loads of fun. Good luck!

I just finished the same Rugged 5k! I think I may have seen you :) I was in the 1:30 wave. Holy mud! That was definitely the killer. I hope you had fun. Lindsey

No way!! I wish I'd known! I started at 11:30 but I was still there at 1:30. That mud was insane- and it was freeeeezing!

Maybe next year! That was so crazy. I can't wait to see the pictures :) The bonfire was the place to hang out afterwards ;)

I know, I'm hoping they got some good pictures- the ones from other races are awesome. I didn't see the fire pit until we decided to leave- that definitely would have felt amazing!!
