Pig Trail Mud Run

 So.  Much.  Fun.

This is what I was doing last weekend.  Another 5k plus obstacles.  We had mild storms and gloomy drizzles all week leading up to the event, and it was a rainy morning.  There were the man made muddy obstacles along with muck that just comes from having a wet week.

I was supposed to participate with one of my workout buddies, but at the last minute, something came up with her daughter and she couldn't play in the mud.  It took quite a bit of courage to attend by myself, but I REALLY wanted to do this thing, so by golly, I did!  Yay, me!  That may have been the toughest challenge of all!

My rope swing was a thing of beauty!  I made it all the way across that puddle AND landed sort of gracefully on the other side!  I was so surprised!

I don't remember how many obstacles there were, but each held its own challenges.  This event will definitely be on my To Do List again next year!
Had.  A.  Blast!

OK.  Here we go!

After completing all those obstacles, I couldn't wait to see if any of the photos matched my athletic brilliance.  ;-)  The email came with the photo gallery link.  I pounced on it.  Well, the very first photo was this one! 


I was there!  Right there in that mud pit!

 If you look closely, you can see it is a plastic snake, but DANG!  Whoever staged this photo and put it in the gallery...

  1. Um holy cow!! Even the fake snake gives me the willie's. I'm so so so proud of you for attending a big event on your own like that. The entry fees aren't cheap though so I don't blame you for going thru with it. Those are some great photos of you! You are a machine now girlie. I wished we lived closer so you could inspire me to sew and to work out with you.

  2. Sure have to give you credit for bravery and intent. Not sure I would have done it but what the heck why not.
    Have to say fake snake would have been off putting for me have terrible feeling of gagaciousness when snakes are concerned, fake or not.

  3. Wow! Well done you - I certainly could not do something like this. That snake thing is ridiculous, I would have been SO scared! #PoCoLo

  4. ha glad it was just plastic :) Looks like the best dirty time you could have had!

  6. Boy I'm glad it was plastic! Scared me! Looks like a great fun time! Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

  7. It looks fun, Marci! I'm glad you went ahead even without your friend. I love you camo tights, too!
