Mudstach 2012: May Edition

Today was the first ever mud event for me. I loved it. The end.

If you want more than that please continue reading!

I find myself not wanting to type so much these days... hence the lack of posting.
Ok. So. Lori G, a co-worker of mine, asked me if I was interested in signing up for this little mud race. She said she did it last year and had a blast! Heck Yeah, I replied.

I got to the race about 1:20 or so. As I was walking to the registration desk I get a phone call from Lori. Her Mom, who has been dying of cancer was passing. She lived an hour and a half away, and had to miss the race. She offered to give her registration to one of my kids. (she is so sweet!!)

I tried to get my kids interested, but no takers. I think Reece really wanted to do it but he was nervous. Brock hates dirt and bugs. Zeb could give or take it. He is a bit young.

I asked Reece to take some pictures of the obstacles while he was waiting. You can see the hanging barrel's. (to the left, ) I don't think that is me running in them but we can pretend it is. Ok? (and not the big puffy inflatable dude)

It was held at a ski mountain called Perfect north. Really close to home. Only about 20 minutes away. You can see the chair lift in the first picture.

I loved the misters. I believe that is how they make snow, but since it was 90 degrees at the start of the race it was WONDERFUL to have them cool you down. Although it made some very slippery mud. But hey, it was an excuse to walk!

In this pic, you can see the slide we had to go head first on, then the dumpster looking thing was ice cold water you had to wade through! Fun! It was nice to get cleaned off before heading into the next part...

By FAR the hardest part of the event was this mud. It was SO THICK, I had to stand up in it to take a break. I tried crawling through it but my abs wouldn't let me. I was very tired and heavy

You can see me climbing out of the pit. The guys on stage were heckling us saying "We are nice and clean up here!" Someone replied, "I think you need a hug."

The last obstacle. A ladder up and over down some bales of hay.

All done. Way fun. My left butt cheek and ankle are a little sore. I landed funny on my ankle and slipped on some mud going into one of MANY mud pits on a trail run, but so very worth it!!

They gave me a $20 gift card to sign up for the next race which is a Night time run. I am so in!!
You can barely tell I was wearing shorts. I was though!!!

Oh, and this is how you clean up before heading out. A quick shower by hose.

See all clean!
