On Saturday, Jarrod, the kids, and I all loaded up into the car to drive up to Scranton so that I could run in the Dirty Girl Mud Run 5K with some friends.
It was my first mud run, and it was a blast!
There was a giant pyramid to climb over, big inflatable balls to run/push through, multiple mud pits, a giant slip & slide, rope spider webs, rope ladders, plastic corrugated pipes to crawl through, and fire to jump over. Let me tell ya, jumping over fire give you some definite street cred with your kids!
Trenton and Charlotte weren’t all that enthused before the race started about the fact that they were only going to be able to watch the race and not run in it. But they had a couple of friends to watch with, and they really had a lot of fun yelling for us whenever we passed by. At the top of their lungs, of course. And after the race, they were all armed with silly string to shoot at us!
Jarrod and the other two kids did not give me hugs until I had rinsed off and changed clothes though….
I had so much fun in the Dirty Girl Mud Run! We could not have asked for nicer weather. And while I did fall in the mud back-first (on more than one occasion), I managed to not fall face first or get thrown down in the mud pits. So that’s why the front of my shirt stayed pretty clean comparatively speaking.
