I recently participated in my first ever mud run! It was amazing! I had the time of my life and highly recommend everyone doing some kind of fun run at least once a year. I’m a competitive runner. I’m competitive with myself. I am constantly trying to beat my time, move faster and finish stronger!
The mud run was a 5K and it was timed but I had no idea of my timing. I wore old shoes and ditched any kind of technology for obvious reasons. I really didn’t know what to expect when the race started. However, I had a blast climbing towers, crawling in swamps, carrying sandbags and hustling up and down very steep hills! I finished in 40 minutes and was shocked to learn that that it was 3rd in my division! I laughed with friends throughout the race and truly enjoyed every second!
This race was just the beginning of my commitment to have at least one fun race a year when you aren’t watching the clock!
As a runner we are always pushing ourselves further and faster but this was nothing but pure joy and fun! Grab your friends and find a fun run! I promise you will enjoy it!
