2010 Marine Mud Run


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.

WE WANT PICTURES!

That is awesome. What a great idea. It reminds me of the mud festival that they have in South Korea.

They were supposed to have photos on their website at the end of the week, they still haven't been posted, hopefully soon!
