Mud, Sweat and Tears?!

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I had a girlfriend ask me to join her and compete in a Mud, Sweat and Tears 5k race. The race is September 1st ! I have plenty of time to get ready for it, and I pretty much said yes that I am doing it. emoticon emoticon

The thought of doing it scares the heck out of me but I need to do it! I need this to keep me on track and to push myself a little harder. I am stepping out of my box!! I have 155 days to get ready for this.... I can run 5k on the treadmill but this is way more than a simple race, it's like Wipeout! So starting today I am in training ...... I will keep you posted on my progress.

Here's a picture from a Mud, Sweat and Tears race! :)

    I did the Warrior Dash a couple years ago and April 20th I'm doing the Rugged Maniac with a couple friends. They are lots of fun; (or I'm crazy). We usually walk, I only do it as an excuse to walk 3 miles and play in the mud along the way! Nothing like a mid-life crisis, right? (Not that you'd know about that yet...give it time); I'm referring to mine!

You'll have a blast! emoticon

    Cool! You have time to prepare and can do it! Just make sure and bring wet ones with you to the finish line and maybe a towel to throw over the car seats! lol! Have fun training!
