Pretty Muddy

On Sunday I partook in the Pretty Muddy mud run, my first mud run.  I had the pleasure of being an ambassador for Pretty Muddy (ie: I got a free race entry) and while I enjoyed the experience, there’s definitely some things that could have made it better.


Step 1: Wake up early, pay $10 to park (I appreciate that it went to charity but this is still steep for parking in a grass field), pickup race bib, be sad you don’t get a tshirt and drop your stuff at bag check.


Step 2: Line up for your wave group and when the countdown ends, start running.


Step 3: This is a race that would be MUCH more fun with friends versus on your own, but regardless give it your all and have fun.  I ran from obstacle to obstacle, only walking or stopping when I hit an obstacle or if I had to try and get around groups of people.  Some of the obstacles weren’t that hard or exciting but others were definitely fun.

The fact that I climbed such a high rope without thinking twice, blew my mind!

Step 4: Bring it on home for the final sprint and mud pit.  Don’t let a little mud stop you.  And seriously, don’t mess with me when I’m in the mud! 😉

Step 5: Get your finishers medal and go get your picture taken!

Have you ever done a mud run before?  If not, would you?
