Playing in the mud

Last week I mentioned signing up for the Warrior Dash. An intense gut hurting 5K that includes obstacles. Well, in preparation for that race, I'm participating in another obstacle 5K race, Dirty30. As you can see, this race will include 7 tons of mud and 15 obstacles. Piece of cake!


I'm about 54% sure I can get my butt over the wall I have to climb. Also, I'm pretending the 7 tons of mud is like a day at the spa. Don't people pay big bucks to roll around in mud? I think it does something for your skin?

But for today, I ask each one of you to pray for me. I will need every pray spoken on my behalf. Go ahead I'll wait................................................

Folks, this is serious stuff I have climb a wall that looks similar to this...



Ok so maybe I'm being a bit dramatic, because that's a picture of the Great Wall of China. I'm sure they will not have a replica of the Great Wall. However, if they did I'd be prepared because I've already conquered this wall. True story!

I'm really upset...I'm one of the ones who sent the emails begging Warrior Dash to come to Oklahoma -- and I will be 39 weeks pregnant on the day they decided to behoove my emails. Where is the justice?!?

Poor Laurie. :( Perhaps it will be a huge success and they'll keep doing it.

Best of Luck OK Chic! I know you can do it...one step at a time.

Hopefully that wall will be at the beginning of the race! You go girl!

Upper body strength helps with some of the obstacles, but overall fitness is your best friend. I have no problem running 3 miles, but 3 miles in mud, okay, it's not all in mud, but it's still 3 miles with obstacles & mud, and that's tough.

Good luck!

This sounds like zero fun. I'm afraid we may not be the most compatible walking mates/Chinese food eating buddies. I will say a prayer for you while I sip my Sonic diet coke. :)

I did a Mud Run last year, and it was really fun! I was pretty out of shape too, and I managed :)

Hope you enjoy it!
