So, if the title doesn’t make it obvious, I had FUN on the Run A Muck race on Sunday.
Truth be told, I was seriously considering not running.
I mean, we’re talking about a 3+ hour drive, on Sunday morning, leaving at 5:00am (ish), and then doing this run alone, and then driving back home again.
And though I had seen the posts on facebook that made sure I had an idea of what to expect, let’s face it, that almost made it more intimidating!
But I don’t often enough step out of my comfort zone, and Mat was willing to drive all the way up and all the way back and be my supporter, and really, after the generous donations I received, I simply could not (nay, WOULD NOT) back out!
I started writing about everything that happened, my thoughts and impressions, and I decided that it was too long for a single post, so rather than hear me blather on, how about some pictures of the actual event? 🙂
Most pathetic show of guns ever!
Wow! Nervous much?
Not the guy behind me! Check out his guns! 😛
First obstacle! Over round bales, onto the sea container, over top!
Set the bar HIGH for how tough these obstacles were going to be!
Waiting in line at the wall-rope climb. They have fun names, but I forget them. 🙂
Starting to get muddy!
Running past unconcerned ponies.
Check out that weather coming! Eep!
The “W” obstacle. They had a guys side (no helping steps) and a girls side. I took the girl’s side. I wouldn’t be able to do three full body weight pull ups in a row!
Thta’s the line up caused by the W obstacle. If they do this again, they need to make that one wider to accommodate more people. Serious back-log!
The dreaded Rope Net. Not so bad, if you follow the instructions.
Someone at the bottom said “She must have done this before” after watching me come down!
Funny balls. The volunteers pushed them at you as your ran through so you’d get knocked into the mud!
I took the easy one, and was told to go back and do it again 😛
First water crossing!
Now we’re really talking MUDDY!
People were stuck!
Shoes were lost!
Mud was slung!
Oh the fun and games had here!
Did he give up? 🙂
CAKED with MUD!
This is AFTER I cleaned up a little….
This is where I hurt my knee…
Finished!! They kinda clean you off a little with the bubbles 🙂
Happy Foamy Feet!
Yeah, not flattering!
But even after the last swim obstacle, I’m still dragging ton of mud on me.
I didn’t face plant into the mud, happily, but spent a lot of time on my ass in it! 😛
That soap does not seem to have done the trick!
My Run A Muck dog tags.
Proud as punch to wear them!
It was a seriously good time!!
