I’m a dirty girl!

Where do I even begin?

This was my first mud run, but my 3rd and most definitely best 5k. (So far)

First of all, doing a 5k with friends is just more fun. It didn’t matter that we were the back of the pack, and I only laughed when the next wave began to pass us. This race wasn’t a competition, it was a way for the 3 of us to step out of our comfort zones a bit and have a little fun doing it. 

We ran, climbed, and slid our way through a large horse farm enjoying every rolling hill, a pond full of ducks, and weaving through piles of horse poop!

The last thing in our way from crossing the finish line was a very large mud pit surrounded by a large cheering crowd. 

Now, I hate being cold. Like, really hate it. And mud is gross.

But over the course of an hour, I’d run, laughed and climbed tall rope towers (did I mention my crippling fear of heights?) so one little mud puddle was not going to stop me now!

With the DJ cheering us on, and commenting on my every move,(because I realized I was standing there alone with my buddies behind me debating) I stripped off my jacket and dove into the ice cold, muddy bottomed pit.

It literally took my breath away. It was that cold. 

It almost took my pants as I got up.

It was a perfect ending to the perfect ‘race’.

  1. So very awesome! And so very glad that your pants stayed ON your person. Because otherwise you probably would have been REALLY cold. xo
