MUD RUN!

If you haven’t completed a mud run then you are missing out on a lot of fun. Find one near you and sign up for it with a group of friends or your family. And definitely carpool. Riding together is sooooo much fun!

Carpool!!!

I completed a 2nd mud run this past weekend with my husband, son, and a group of 10 friends. A friend told me about a groupon, so I saved about $40 per person! The run was called the Warrior Dash. It was a blast and was very similar to the Rugged Maniac race I did a couple of years ago!

Clean Warriors!

We climbed up/over/down/under/around/through so many obstacles. At one point, we were submerged to our necks in a mud pit. At the end we were face down crawling under barbed wire in 2 feet of thick mud to the finish line. The water hose party was hilarious. The Warrior Dash post race party was probably one of the best I have attended. I love how people get pumped up and dressed up for this type of race.

  • throw away running shoes
  • ball cap
  • croc sandals
  • change of clothes
  • large beach towel for “deck changing”
  • photo ID for beer garden
  • camera phone (leave in bag!)
  • good attitude

Have FUN in the MUD!

Stick around for the real action..

Have you ever hung around after your race is finished and the awards and prizes have been given out?  If not, you may want to consider it next time. The post race ultimate fighting trophy matches are where the real action takes place!  My trophy got her bootay kicked at Bubba’s 5k.

Losing can mean winning…

Although, our team lost the Big Bad Bunny Urban Scavenger Hunt Race, more important things were won by the experience.  I got familiar with the streets of Asheville, I saw the Easter bunny take a bad trip (video coming soon), but most of all, I won by making a cool memory with my hubby and teenage son. We earned 2 points by getting all of our feet off the ground in this picture!
