We ran the Dirty Dash in June...this was my incentive for finishing my first Half Marathon. Geoff said he would run a 5k with me. I picked this one, Geoff hates running, and I thought the 5k obstacle course through the mud would be more fun for him. Curtis, Nicole and Alicia joined our team "Evergreen Chiropractic--not afraid to get our hands dirty" We couldn't come up with a more creative name, but next year we will be creative and have costumes to make the even more fun. I will warn you in the next few pictures you can see that we had a little too much fun with the mud, if you don't want to see them...scroll down to the end.
This is towards the end of the race, you can't see it well, be we were getting pretty dirty. and having a really good time.
The race started with the climb up a very muddy slope! It was actually pretty hard, our shoes were sticking in the mud, Geoff ended up taking off his shoes and running barefoot for the rest of the race.
You might ask how we got all the mud off...well, Curtis was kind enough to run back to the car and pay for the girls to take warm showers...the cold ones were not going to cut it. These were outdoor showers, so we basically got to rinse off. Once we got home, it took 4 more showers to get clean...I had to wash my hair 8 times to get the mud out! We all will admit we found mud in random places...like our ears, for about a week! We had a blast with this run...and can't wait to run it again next year. Emma and James are going to participate in the "piglet plunge" next time.
