You have to wonder about humans sometimes. We work more than we should, eat things that we know are terrible for our bodies and subject ourselves to all sorts of nonsense. Take for example, the recent trend in athletic races. All over the country people are signing up to participate in races that involve mud, color, dangerous obstacles and more. Clearly this was a bandwagon I needed to jump on.
So a few weeks back I joined a group of friends to get down and dirty over the course of 5 miles through suburban New Jersey. And funny enough it was the most fun I've had in awhile. I jumped in pools of mud, climbed over walls, meandered through the muck and flew down a few slides all for a good cause.
Next up? A 10k complete with wine tasting, a 5k course dotted with inflatables and maybe even my first triathlon. Guess it's time to get swimming.
Here are a few outtakes from the mess that was Mudderella:
