Mudquest!!

Yep, I did it again.  Another adventure run in the mud.  They did a much better job with the obstacles this go around.  My BFF and I battled the 3.5 mile course.  Our #1 goal-to survive.  Our #2 goal-to finish before dark!!  We accomplished both!

Here are some pics, courtesy of the husband...

Before we began, all nice and clean.


Our first encounter with the mud.


I don't know how they expected someone to walk across this.  The klutz I am, there was no way.  Crawlin' seemed the way to go.


I didn't care for his one.  Mostly because I could see me falling to my death!


Too loose of ropes to keep us upright!


Now this one was crazy.  Had to jump off this platform into 8 ft of water below.


There I go!!! It was pretty high.  You can't even see the water below me!  And yes, I held my nose.  I'm not a water person.  Believe me, it didn't help.  When I hit, I still sucked water up my nose.


Mud was so sticky, it sucked BFF's shoe off her foot.  Took both of us to get it out.


Finally, the last obstacle.  A short swim and crawl under the wire.


And of course, we couldn't resist a little mud fight!


We were too dirty girls by the end.  But it was loads of fun.
