Total miles: 10
Total obstacles: 28
Time to complete: ~4 hours
Total feet of elevation change:13,747. Almost 7,000 ft of climbing. Mount Washington is 6,288 ft, for reference.
Number of q-tips before my ears were tolerably clean: 11
Number of tissues before the snot to mud ratio was in favor of snot: 6 (2 blows per tissue)
Feeling of accomplishment for jumping of a 15 foot ledge into 35 degree water? Priceless.
I will absolutely be running this again. And every possible mud run ever. Because nothing will ever be as hard as this run was.
I know I know, get to the pictures already. :-) Here ya go:
Video of the start of the race.
First hill back up
First time we saw Nick! I didn't fall, I was getting mud on my hands to give him a smooch!
The pipes of death! I thought these would be more mentally challenging than they were.
Coming out the other side. Pwnd!
Maybe later I'll put some more thought into a careful introspection of this run. However, right now...I am le tired and I need to work.
Rose and I are coming up with some stuff for this...keep an eye out. Toilet pLunges anyone? :-D And to those of you who have asked if you can join, of course you can!! If you have pics to prove you worked out, even better...send them along and one of us (or both of us) will post them. If you don't have pics, s'ok too...just tell us what you're doing!
