Momma Got Messy

I meant to write about my mud run experience a couple of weeks ago, but life got in the way.


That's me. Covered in mud.

A few of my college girlfriends decided to the Jailbreak (loud video on the front page, fyi) this past September. One girl had done a mud run in the spring and had so much fun that she somehow convinced more of us to try it. Considering I hate to get dirty and am really rather prissy, this is no small task.

The race was a 5K. I was prepared for stretches of mud, but this race was mud from beginning to end. In between the obstacles the course was just mud. I found it rather hard to run in mud, I guess I'm not light of foot, because of the slipping and sliding. Some of the obstacles included an army crawl through mud under police tape, sliding down a mud hill into a giant mud puddle, climbing a ramp using a rope (the ramp was covered in mud), climbing a cargo net hung over a metal frame (totally shaking when I got done with that one because I hate heights) and various other things.

It was so fun! We weren't worried about our time at all and waited for each other along the way. We cheered each other on. I didn't skip a single obstacle, even though it took me a few tries to complete a couple of them. This race was all about doing something new and overcoming challenges.

I can't wait to do another one!

  3. I have some friends that do this, as in organize the races. They are having one close to us (Winnie) in November if y'all would like to do another one. The first one they did was last April, and I bet they do it again.
