Mud, Vikings and Turkey Legs

Somehow, for some reason, a couple of years ago, links starting popping up in my Facebook feed to mud runs and mud obstacle courses.  I immediately knew I HAD TO participate.  HAD TO.

I tried to get my friends to go along with me, but everyone said “mud, eh, no.”  So I waited.  And waited.

Last weekend, finally, I got to realize one of my life long dreams — being covered head to toe in mud.  And blog reading public, it was as wonderful as I always thought it was going to be.  Well, except for the four showers I had to take to get the mud out of my hair and everywhere else.  I also got mud in my ears.  Oh well.  All for a good cause.  The obstacles were so much fun.  I could do those all day, everyday and be happy with it.

Not to mention, at the end of the thing finishers medals featuring Viking horns are distributed.  And those medals also double as bottle openers.  As an aside, I will show up anywhere, ANYWHERE that gives out finishers medals.  Bobbing for piranha?  Sure.  Do you have a finisher’s medal??

Anyway, let’s celebrate my triumphs on the field of athletic pursuit with a few photos:
