Rugged Maniac


 Our first 5k Obsticle course was a blast! It was much more challenging than I had anticipated but we all helped each other and made it to the finish, very tired, wet and extremely muddy! Knee pads would have been clutch when crawling under the barb wire in the rocky mud which cut up our shins and knees. But we prevailed.



The trio of us: Geoff, John and myself


As soon as we hit the ice cold muddy water I lost my breath for about 30 seconds. Next time I will hold my breath on the way down and save it rather than scream it all out.



We planned those sweet "narly" signs. I think we're still pretty cool at this mature age :)


Tons of people.


Nice and clean pre-race.


Total dirtballs post race. We were so lucky it was fairly warm out because we were soaking wet.


We were a little proud of our accomplishment. Here's our gun show.



 Just one of the many walls we climbed.
And I think we're excited for the next race.

And this is what I woke up to the next day (after I got to sleep in until 7:30!!) that's pretty late for me.


My Mother's Day breakfast... complete with a Cappuccino! Yum!


John and the boys did good!! real good!
