Mud Run!!!

Ohhhhhh Yessss! I woke up bright and early this morning in great anticipation for this! Colorado Springs 4 mile Mud Run!

I was invited by some girls at Larry's work to come along and join their team and I am glad I did. It seriously was a lot of fun. Though the advertisement on the flier was a bit off: "Four miles of pure mud with lots of obstacles along the way!" (um, only 4 and one of the obstacles had us swing over a pretend mud pit, since they forgot!), this still was alot of fun and have decided nothing is better than starting your Saturday wallowing in the mud.




Here we are, the Warrior Princesses!!!!!




With matching shirts, wings, and all!!


A great before shot, with our awesome new tattoos...




















Ready? SET....
...Go!
note: the group that we are running with won the costume contest. Tsk tsk. They didn't even have wings!
Larry, Edana, and Cpt. Venn (taking pic) were awaiting our return at the end.



And here we come!!!!


note: I'm the girl in the back not knowing how to army crawl. Yeah. Figured that would be me with all the army girls! ;) I attempted it and got a face full of mud!

And here is the lovely "after" shot! Ha ha! I love how Ashley (middle) was the only one with her wings still intact!


I think this is a great look for me.








While we waited on the results, we contributed to the "shoe bin" and were hosed down by an fireman.










To our surprise we won our section! Our winning prizes? Wet wipes and a tube of sunblock.


This really was a great run and suggest that all of you find the nearest mud puddle and have at it!


Oh...and my poor wings did not make it...

on a side note, we were on the news! yeah for everyone getting to see my muddy behind!http://ww2.kktv.com/global/video/popup/pop_player.asp?clipId1=4008005&flvUri=http://flash.video.worldnow.com/kktv/KKTV_010820091728015985_5958642B.flv&at1=News&vt1=v&h1=PLAY%20VIDEO%3A%20YMCA&playerVersion=1&hostPageUrl=http%3A//ww2.kktv.com/global/video/popup/pop_playerLaunch.asp%3FclipId1%3D4008005%26flvUri%3Dhttp%3A//flash.video.worldnow.com/kktv/KKTV_010820091728015985_5958642B.flv%26at1%3DNews%26vt1%3Dv%26h1%3DPLAY%2520VIDEO%253A%2520YMCA&rnd=63497418

How fun! I have high hopes for myself after I have this baby. Maybe you'll see a few posts in the future of me doing some runs!
