Personal | Down & Dirty Mud Run 2011

Last weekend, I did the Down & Dirty mud run at Orchard Beach. We all know how I feel about racing (does the accidental half-marathon ring a bell?), so when I signed up I was imagining it being more of a carefree, la-de-da, “hey look Ma, I’m playing in mud!” sort of event. I mean, yes, I knew it was an actual race; however, I intended on having fun with it rather than racing, per say.

And so I willingly paid money to run through all sorts of mud for 5 grueling kilometers, throwing myself over muddy walls and crawling through muddy pools, all while making sure I maneuvered my limbs oh-so-gingerly so as to avoid further injuring my previously-injured knee/ankle/hipbone (man, when’d I get so old?). It was by no means a walk in the park, but it was an absolute blast. I totally surprised myself and ended up in the 21st percentile, which kind of makes me wish I had cared a little more about my time. But that only gives me more motivation for next year’s 10k (which includes … wait for it … a wall of hay bales!).


See that lovely orange bandana/hat/do-rag they provided us with? I’m now intent on turning it into some sort of halloween costume for my kitty. A pumpkin? The M Train? The MCAT? I don’t know, but it’s too cute not to use!
