I finished my 5th 5K race today. It was the 2010 Marine Mud Run in Knoxville. All the proceeds went for Toys for Tots. This wasn't your basic 5K - they set up obstacles throughout the course. There were a couple of mud pits, two times you had to run in the river, you had to go under ropes and logs, and to tire sprints. I am scared on my knees, elbows, and hands. It was so much fun . . . to make it even better was it rained all morning, so the course was nice and muddy. I didn't get to take many photos, but here is a shot of my shoes oozing with mud. When I got home I had mud in every crevice of my body - including my ears and nostrils.

If you have never experienced a day in Knoxville on Game Day you are missing out. These people are die hard University of Tennessee fans. I have never lived anywhere where people are so dedicated to their team. At my university we had a hard time filling the seats. I did my story about the economic impact of the game on local businesses. An estimated 100,000 come to these games.
