New Mud Runners

If you saw my recent video log (vlog sounds kind of odd) then you probably already know BUT...

On Saturday, I'm running my next race, my sixth race of 2010. I'm going to run the San Bernardino Mud Run. That's exciting as it's a new challenge, albeit one I don't think will be quite like the Camp Pendleton Mud Run. For starters, this is a 5K and Camp Pendleton is a 10K.

Anyway, that part is exciting but what's equally if not more exciting is that the girls are running another race that day! They're doing the 1K Youth Mud Run! How awesome is that?!?

I'm not sure how long their race is, if it's an actual 1K or if it's a dash across a shorter distance. But like the other race, that doesn't much matter. What matters is that it's another race, and this one comes with a bonus - they will get MUDDY!! There are obstacles in this race and there is lots of mud.

The girls are excited about it but I'm not sure they really understand that they will be running in mud and will get completely drenched in muddy water.

I think the girls will be excited for it. They seem that way when we talk about it. I'm not sure if I'll be able to be on the course with them, to help them over whatever obstacles they need help with. I can't imagine they will have to trek through anything too dastardly but it might be tough for them to get through the mud, for instance.

We'll have plenty of pictures and possibly some video to share with you, so definitely come here on late Saturday afternoon to read all about it. In the meantime, we're going to have muddy thoughts the rest of the week.

I wonder why it is our second toenails that fall off? The one I lost 3 years ago at my first 1/2 was also a second toenail... interesting.

These mud runs intrigue me. They sound really fun and also really difficult at the same time. Can't wait to hear how it goes for you and the girls!

Wow! That is great that your girls are going to do that. I am still hoping to get my kids out to run. But I don't want to push them. My 6 year old finally started riding a bike without training wheels... he needs a while to warm up to ideas.

Have a great time this weekend!

p.s. I am doing the Mud Run in Camp Pendleton this year and can't wait!
