Several months ago, my friend (Sherri), gave me a call. She said she really wanted to do this mud run and was trying to think of someone crazy enough to do it with her and thought of me since I'm always doing runs. So I said I'd love to do a mud run!!
Before you run a mud run, be sure that you do a little research so that you know what you are getting into. Know what kind of clothes to wear! You don't want to wear cotton! It will weigh a ton! Know how to dress! Check out the mud run site to see what obstacles you'll be doing! You want to be prepared! Dirty Girl is pretty easy! It's all blow up stuff!
I follow Mud Runner HQ on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. He has an awesome website to read to help you prepare for a mud run! Be sure to follow him! Stay in the loop on Mud Runs! This website was a huge help to prepare me for my first mud run!
I was not expecting the terrible smell! I felt like I was in a horse barn! Yuck! All of the "muddy" stations has water, mud, and wood chips! WHY? I have no clue. I had wood chips and mud in all kinds of placed when I finally showered! I swear my sports bra was a collector of wood chips!
The "Rinse Off" station was so long! There was no way that we wouldn't stand there for at least an hour to rinse off. So we chose to go home to shower! Bring trash bags and towels to sit on!
It was a good thing we rode in an SUV! We were on a hill and there was so much mud from the rain that cars were getting stuck! Be prepared! There were a few kind guys in Jeeps that were attempting to get cars out of the mud or pushing cars out of the mud. It was crazy!
Well...here is my Adventure in Mud with my friend Sherri!
