Run Like A Girl

Last weekend, four of my oldest & dearest friends and I ran our first 5K obstacle mud run. 


And seriously, it was amazing. We had an absolute blast.

We've been wanting to do something like this for a while, and decided on the Dirty Girl because it donates a portion of its profits to breast cancer, something that is near & dear to all of our hearts.

None of these six pictures are mine; they're from the Dirty Girl website.

Some of the obstacles were tough, and you have the option to forgo any that seem out of your realm of comfort. I'm proud to say that my group completed each one and we had varying levels of "training"; for example, Kandi just had a baby not even a year ago and Chrissy runs 2-3 miles every morning. Sarah and I were somewhere in the middle. Each one of us loved it and can't wait for next year's run.




If you have a chance to do something like this, I totally recommend it. The energy, comradery, and overall feeling of accomplishment you get when you cross the finish line - or in this case, slide down into some mud, are incredible.
