I’ve been avoiding sharing this with you in the hopes that it would miraculously, some how, fall off my calendar.
Alas, no such luck. The time has come. Wayyyyyyy back in April or somewhere about then my sweet R friend (R&M, getting married next year?)…
Yea her. She’s the culprit. She talked us into signing up for one of these muddy obstacle course 5K races. I’ve NEVER wanted to do an obstacle course like this because I hate mud and I hate being dirty and gross and just eh (sorry, that was a little diva status – but I am not rugged). But because I love her and because the hubs was into it, we said yes.
So all of these beautifully clean people –
Yep, we’ll all be getting ‘rugged’ and muddy this weekend. I plan on making a stop at Goodwill on Friday night to pick up some $2 tennis shoes and other clothes that I can just toss after this is done.
In honor of said race taking place this weekend, I made a Rugged Maniac playlist for you for some Thursday Tunes. Obviously I won’t be able to listen to the playlist during the race – but I’ll rock out to it on the drive there.
Give me a status check of your running this week!
Are your pets troublemakers like mine?!
Have you ever done a muddy/dirty obstacle race like the Rugged Maniac? Any suggestions for me to get through it?
