Mud Run!

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!


Anyone want to run with me next year?!!!


  1. Good for you! What a rush that must be!

  2. Sounds like a ton of fun! I'd pass out after one K of course, but hooray to you for completing it. And those outfits are fabulous for a day of fun.

  3. oh I'd love to! I've always wanted to do it :) Good for you! And I happen to love the outfits ;)

  4. You guys look HOT!!! I love the outfits :D and a sprained ankle???? OUCHIE.
    Looks like it was a blast though!

  5. Awesome, so much fun & I just loved your socks!! I've run the Marine Mud run in MO a few times & I won the womens individual last year! I love the mud pits & river crossings!
    Summer I changed my blog address, click on my name & it will lead you to it!

    You Rock Girl, I hope your ankle heals in no time!
