I had a choice to try and beat my Turkey Trot time, or to run it for fun. I ran it with two friends: one who had a 5K PR much faster than mine, and one who had never run a 5K all the way through. I decided to stick with the latter, and ran and walked when she did. I didn't race. I couldn't have even if I tried - it was MUDDY.
|Mud, everywhere. Ugh.|
|Me and my running buddies :) (My shirt says "Paw Humbug", if you're wondering. Hah!)|
|They had little stations you could take pictures at!|
|Ready to run!|
|The tiniest Start line in existance - we had to wait for the 4th wave!|
|Around the halfway mark, there were more picture-taking opportunities.|
|We crossed the Finish Line probably about 35-40 minutes after we crossed the Start Line.|
|Some sugary cider that I had a sip of|
|Happy to be finished!|
|These were awesome!|
|Sweet Potato Syrup?? Ummm yes please.|
Going to and coming from the race was a pain, since it's this one long road that comes to an intersection with a busy street that doesn't stop, so it took us about 15 minutes extra of just sitting in traffic before we really got on the road again.
Would I do it again...? Meh. :) Probably not. A fun experience, but not one that I would repeat! I've decided I never want to do a Mud Run, either!
Ever done a Mud Run?
