I threw caution to the wind this past Saturday and took part in the Camp Pendleton Mud Run with a few friends.
My running buddy, Brandy and me.... BEFORE
do we look tough?? I didn't pick the outfits.
clean shoes... BEFORE
THE COURSE: a challenging 10k run with hills, tire obstacles, low sand crawl, river crossings, two-5-foot walls with mud on both sides, resevoir crossing (4 1/2 feet deep), tunnel crawl, slippery hill climb, and the final 30-foot mud pit.
It was all of those things.
shoes AFTER. I had to throw them away, along with the socks.
This race was SO MUCH FUN and I survived with only a sprained ankle and some minor cuts and bruises!
