Spartan Sprint 5K Mud Run - COMPLETE!
Monday, December 03, 2012
So I did it! One more thing to knock off the bucket list for the year. I ran a 5K distance (4.34 miles, actually) without stopping in 40-ish minutes AND I not only completed a 5K race, but completed a Spartan Sprint!! Wooo!! I did the race with my boyfriend, Blake, and it really proved how we support each other and encourage each other to keep going even when it was rough.
It was one mess of a race and I can honestly say that I've never been dirtier in my entire like. There were uphills and downhills and probably 10 different obstacles to complete along the way. It was hard and the weather was rainy and cold. Looking back on it I can't believe that I made it through... There was one obstacle that I thought I would never make it through in a million years, the monkey bars. It was slightly easier because they let us use our feet, but still it was crazy hard!
Here are some pics from along the way:
