Call us crazy. We signed up for the Volkslauf. It’s a 5k mud run that the marines put on that benefits toys for tots. There were 1900 runners. We didn’t know what to expect and didn’t really train for it but just decided to give it a try … see what all the fuss was about. It was basically a lot of mud and obstacles. ;)
This was the course map …. you basically run almost 5k around these obstacles and then go into the mud. That snake looking thing is a ditch/canal that is filled with different depths of water/mudd. At one point I had mud up to my neck. Fun right?
Before pictures … we ended up running into friends.
It really was so fun. We found out Sunday night that I actually got 17th out of 130 for my sex/age group. Honestly it shocked us because we weren’t really trying to push it. We had never done it before and were just going for it. Next year I think we will try a little harder and see what we can do. ;) So much fun!!!
