Last month we survived another Tough Mudder.
Yeah, you read that right. Another...as in second one! Honestly, they are really more fun than you would really think. Just make sure you do some running or working out for a few months before. These events are tough. And when you are trying to walk through mud, they are even harder! But it's doable. If I (who could be classified as a princess) can do two of these runs and a Warrior Dash, you can too. Promise 🙂
He said: I'm going to sign up to run another Tough Mudder with my brother and anyone else who wants to do it. Are you in?
She said: Are you kidding me? I've already done that once. I'm good. You have fun with that craziness!
He said: So, a few people at church are going to run the race with me. I told one of the girls that you were running, so she is going to do it too.
She said: You did WHAT??? Why would you do that? Now I have to really work out and eat right.
He said: Well, my brother is out for the Mudder. Apparently doing a mud run three weeks after surgery isn't the best thing to do for recovery.
She said: Can I schedule a surgery? Any surgery? I'm not picky about what they operate on.
He said: Someone has an extra bib for the mini...I think I'm going to run it.
She said: That's the week before the Mudder...I don't think that's a good idea.
He said: Whatever. I'll be fine.
He said: The race has been moved...farther away. You need to get up and be ready to leave by 5:30 AM.
She said: This is just getting better and better! You know how much I love getting up early. (very sarcastic)
She said: Oh, my word! It's freezing outside. Why is it 50* and cloudy in May?
He said: Take your jacket off and quit your whining! Don't you know that's one of the mudder rules. Thou shalt not whine!
He said: Are you ready for all the mud?
She said: You know it! I totally got this. Cute bandana and all!
He said: Oh, my legs! This mud mile is really making my calf muscles ache.
She said: What's that? Was I right about not doing two big runs back to back?
He said: I won't admit that!
He said: It's not right that your hair still isn't dirty or wet.
She said: I'm planning on keeping it that way for as long as I can!
He said: I'm going to try to find that missing Go Pro camera in the Arctic Enema for that random guy.
He said: Nope, it's too cold in this ice bath, I'm getting out as fast as possible!
She said: Holy crap! Holy crap! Holy crap! Brain freeze!!!!
He said: Time to face your fears of jumping off high places into dirty water.
She said: Do I have too? Do I really have to let go of the railing? Don't make me!!!
She said: You know what? I think I got this. I'm hitting my mud groove! Up the hills and slide down!
He said: I'm starting to slow down. Is this over yet?
He said: I don't think I can run anymore!
She said: Now who's whining! Suck it up, buttercup!!! We have to get over these slippery blobs in our way!
She said: Time for a selfie!
He said: Oh, good! Time to take a mini break!
She said: Are you guys going to run? Come on! Ok, I'm going to run and wait for you up there.
He said: Where did you get all that energy? I thought you were freezing! Plus, another rule of the mudder is Thou shalt not leave your teammates!
He said: I would never let my kids walk through a swamp like this!
She said: Who's big idea was this anyway? I'm almost up to my waist in cold water! Why isn't there a brownie refueling station?
He said: Make sure you close your mouth and eyes when you drop out of the tubes on the other side.
She said: Thank goodness for wearing gloves to help hold onto that rope inside that tunnel.
She said: Thank goodness for all those early morning workouts at the gym. We totally got this partner carry!
He said: Crossfit and Advocare is where it's at!
He said: We did it!! Now can we please sit down?!?!?!
She said: That really wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be!
She said: I love being able to say I am one Tough Mother! LOL!
He said: Are you ready to sign up for another one?
She said: You know what? I think I am! But first I need cake!!
Wow! You guys are fantastic! Awesome!
Jessica @ Sweetest Menu
Lol! That is amazing! You go girl!
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust
You. Are. AWESOME!
Probably more like crazy 😉
You are seriously my hero!!!
Thank you 🙂
Anna @ Sunny Side Ups
Amazing job!! Lolz--I love the commentary!!
Ha-I'd run 10 marathons before doing a tough mudder...so major congratulations for doing all those crazy obstacles! 🙂 You rock!
You know...it really isn't as hard as it sounds! If I can do it twice, I think anyone that runs a marathon would ace this!!!
Michelle @ My California Kitchen
Whoa, I am so impressed! Congrats! 🙂 You should totally suggest that brownie refueling station for next year...
Doesn't the brownie station sound like such a great one? I mean they could be brownie protein bars...
Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
OMG. Way to go, girl! You totally rock!!
Thanks! It actually is way more fun than it looks!!!
You are such a crack up!
Haha! I'm glad you think so!!! My hubby might disagree at times!
Congrats, this running one is on my bucket list!
Definitely run one...they really are fun!!!
How do you manage to still be so pretty during that?!?!?
You are too sweet! I tried hard to avoid the mud for as long as possible...but that's not very doable!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
OMG this cracks me up. So funny. Awesome that you were there same time as my kiddo. We have some great photos of him too 🙂 Especially in the Electroshock one! OUCH
That is too funny we were at the same one he did! And for the electroshock one I stayed as low as possible...no way I wanted hit by one of those wires!
Hilarious. Seriously. I cannot believe you did this. TWICE.
I know...I can't believe I did two either!!!
