Here we are before the race started all nice and clean and still smiling! haha
Here we are just starting the race. Right as you cross the start line they have firemen hosing you down! Did I mention this was in late August and it was probably 100 degrees when we raced?
This is my friend Amanda and I crossing the finish line. She fell too and busted up her knees and hand really bad. We were the klutzy ones of the group apparently.
Here we are shooing off our injuries
This is me with Natalie and Maria, my work out girls.
And here is my arm…I had dirt all in my cuts. For about a week I would scrap the dirt off of the cuts while watching TV.
And here is my thigh….it had a huge lump under the skin…it was so gross….
For my next running adventure I signed up to do a Monster Mash Halloween 5k but then I broke my toe so I didn't get to do it. That was a bummer. So my next one ended up being another 5k mud run. I was a little nervous since the last one was so awful but this one ended up being a piece of cake! We decided we wanted to make t-shirts and put something funny on them. We decided on "Sister Wives" Because all of my friends at church call each other this. We knew some people would not like this but we decided we didn't care. haha And on top of that to make it even worse on the back of our shirts we wrote "We share EVERYTHING" haha We also had capes which I was not a fan of and will never wear again while racing. Here's the before pictures
Then we have some during pictures. Amanda and Chrissy were way ahead of us this time and so Chrissy took pictures of Carol and I along the way. She was carrying a water proof camera.
That's me at the bottom of the huge net we had to climb. I totally accidentally kicked someone while climbing it. Opps
After this we treated ourselves to In N Out. It was so much fun!
The next race I did was another 5k. I haven't worked my way up yet to anything longer then that. One of these days I am hoping I can. The next was a color run that Amanda and I did by ourselves. That was fun too. A totally new experience for me. Again my friend and I made shirts. Her's said, "I'm with Awesome" And mine said on the front "Who needs boobs" and the back said "When you have a butt like this" heehee
Fun fun FUN! And lastly just a couple of days before moving to Texas I did one last mud run. It is ironic because it is the same mud run that I started with. The one that was SOOOO hard. However this time it was perfect! I am assuming they got complaints about their being way too many obstacles because they had about half of the amount this time and it was perfect. There were a few things I didn't like. They had several fire pits you had to jump over which wasn't bad but then they had a huge slide you had to go down that put you straight into a huge pile of dirty water. I got so much up my nose it was gross! But I preferred this one to the first one any day!
Here are our before pictures
I'm hoping to do many more races in my days….Crossing my fingers
