My first mudrun! With lots of pictures

It finally happened. I did a mud run! A crazy 5 mile obstacle course that was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I can barely move my body today, but I had a blast!! And I can't wait to do the next one!

There was a ton of people from my gym who did the race. We all took a giant yellow school bus down to the stadium. We had such a large group, we won a contest at race and got an obstacle named after us!

 Here we all are before the race began.

 That's me climbing up a hill

 Helping my friends over a wall

That's me climbing over the wall!
It hurt a lot coming down. My face says it all
Here we are getting out of those tubes. There were half filled with water! One of my friends said it was like the scene in Shawshank Redemption, but without the poop. lol

Here I am running through the electrical wires, trying to not get zapped.

 Didn't work. I got zapped a few times and went down when one hit my knee. lol

We are about a half a mile from the finish line and still have a smile on our faces!

I finished in one hour and 23 minutes!! I am so crazy proud of myself!

Not that muddy after the water but pretty gross all the same. Couldn't wait to get changed!

This is something I'll never forget. There were so many obstacles that I thought for sure I wouldn't be able to do. Like climbing over those walls or up and over a cargo net!! But I did them all (expect for the monkey bars!) and finished strong! Even this time last year I could have never imagined doing something like this. I hadn't even run my first 5K yet and here I am doing a 5 mile obstacle course! Amazing!
