Mud Run: the crawl

Down and dirty. That's what you have to do, and what you get near the end. You have to go down and get dirty.

This mud crawl is, as I said, near the end. I don't quite remember correctly but I think it's before the tunnel and then it's uphill, downhill, straightaway and then finish.

I remember slogging through this part of the run last year, just completely wasted. I used my forearms to drag the rest of my body forward. I didn't mind the water so much as I was just thinking about finishing at this point.

I can't imagine crawling through all that mud! Is there a place to get cleaned up after the race or do you have to get in your car muddy and wet?

There are showers and places to get cleaned up. They were super crowded last year though, at least the mens it was like a big cattle drive.

This was the last obstacle before the FINISH! As you crawl, you can see the finish line, that keeps you going.

Good luck tomorrow, L.B.

Ditto Sue Ann - very last thing before the finish. Have fun and get dirty!
