Running through the mud


My crazy family decided to just get a little bit more crazy and do a mud run together. I really don’t know how we ended up dong this together. I think it started with my sisters wanting to do it, then my dad thought he would too, then my mom thought ‘hey I don’t want to get left out,’ then it was ‘oh Megan will be home in time for it’ and finally we all realized lance would be around too. So we all crammed into one car packed with water, plastic bags and old grubby blankets.

This Survivor Mud Run was at Remlinger Farms in Carnation. It was 3.47 miles filled with crazy obstacles. To see some of the obstacles you can go to the official website and look at Florida’s race, which is set up the same as the one in WA. Our wave left at 10, but we snuck in earlier 🙂

Only the tough survive

I had no idea what to really expect, would there be a bunch of mud or was it just a fake out? I am not a runner contrary to how I look. I survived just like it advertises! At first it wasn’t too bad, run through a little pit of mud, then we had to get down on our hands and knees and crawl through a pipe! I thought “seriously?” It was all down hill from there. My favorites were running through a drainage ditch, sliding down hills of mud and wallowing through mud pits.

What a fine mud mohawk you have!

We all stuck together and finished as one family. Lance enjoyed sliding through the finish line on his stomach. There was a freezing cold shower available, I think the water was pumped from the snow fed river… We could only get semi-clean before we piled back into the car and drove home for a hot shower!

One happy muddy family
