I am a runner? Definitely not. But did I have an absolute BLAST with my mud run crew on Sunday? Abso-freaking-lutely. Sunday, Oct. 2, a group of awesome participated in the Merrill Down and Dirty Mud Run. We decided to do the 5k (read back to that whole NOT a runner thing) and it was super awesome and fun. First there was a ladder wall, then a seriously low (and muddy) crawl, followed by tunnels, a cargo climb, a mud pit, some low hurdle walls, and then another mud pit. The last mud pit was really more like a swimming pool filled with mud. Literally. Arion did the backstroke. Official Merrill photos aren’t posted just yet, but here are a few that we took for some before and after hysteria I highly recommend this race or any of the other mudders when they come visit your city – we plan to do it again next year!!
