THE MUD ON MY BACK WILL SAVE A RACK...that was our team name for crazy Dirty Girl Run. It may have been my first year, but you better believe I'll be recruiting women for next year's race. What an awesome way to raise money for breast cancer research! I can't remember the last time I have laughed and had so much fun...the day was made even better since Jim brought Cole and we could make a family day of it (much credit being given because Cole was up late last night and there were 1000's of people there...thank you, Jim).
We met Kari and the Wojo's at the Goerke's Corners Park and Ride around 9am, ready for a day in the MUD! I will admit, the butterflies were fluttering in my tummy anticipating this race. I knew it wasn't timed and that it was all in good fun, but I'm a tad bit competitive and feared being unable to complete one of the obstacles.
|We're finally here!! VERY long line to get into the fair grounds|
|Shockingly the check-in lines weren't too long|
|The boys...Our cheering section|
|Squeaky Clean and Ready to Go!|
|My sweet baby Cole won't recognize me afterwards|
|Kari and I|
|Angie and I|
|Writing our race numbers on our arms|
Jim and Wojo were able to cruise around and get quite a few pictures of us, but the majority of the race was blocked off unless you were racing. They did catch the last 2-3 obstacles, a few of the toughest, and the muddiest, and the finish line! Thanks for the memories ladies...it was a great day!!
|Wave 11- 10:45am Starting Line|
|Bouncy Slide for Grown Ups|
|Kari in the air|
|So damn fun!|
|And we're off...|
|Little did we know what was right up ahead...|
|Just past that fence were 5 tubes that we had to army crawl through...|
|Coming out of the woods...home stretch|
|One quick pic before the wall|
|This was not my favorite...wet and slippery. I was shaking|
|Those were big gaps in between the 2" steps|
|Angie is all smiles...thanks for catching my ass, Jim|
|And I made it!|
|We thought this was the last of the mud...|
|Then we ran up to this mess...|
|We had mud everywhere!|
|Notice how far away from them I am...no one wanted a hug|
I'm already looking forward to next year ladies!
