***UPDATE- The deadline has been extended until Monday November 3 so I can give people more time to sign up for the giveaway.****
On you mark….
As I mentioned briefly on my other blog posts I am gearing up for a mud run coming into Tampa on November 10. It is going to be EPIC. This isn’t your normal race. There will obstacle courses and mud, lots of it! It is a 5k course (3 miles) and you can run or walk your way between the obstacles. Be prepared to get pretty sweaty and pretty muddy, for it will be pretty awesome! It’ll be something I’ve never experienced. I will be out of my element. I’m not afraid. I am just going close my eyes and go for it! And you should too. People always go on about exercise is boring. Or, they complain about being tired or how they wish they could change something in their life. Well maybe this is your chance….your chance to become FEARLESS. This will be your chance to have fun, laugh and meet new people.
I am huge neat freak and a huge GERMAPHOBIC. The idea of getting dirt under my finger nails grosses me out. I am careful and calculated I worry about too many things (like falling and hurting myself). Enough is enough I say. That is why I signed up for this. When I am an old lady laying warm in my bed I want to say that I experienced things when I was young. I want to say that I got to have unique experiences and met amazing people. I like to take on difficult challenges that are rewarding. These are the reasons I am doing this mud run. And this won’t be the last one. Plus from what I hear this is an awesome finale at the finish line (music, entertainment and other goodies).
At the Pretty Mud Run its just about letting your hair done and having a good time. You don’t have to worry about guys checking you out, crying babies, or spilled wine on your blouse. This is about getting you and your girlfriends together and putting together matching, cute costumes- just think of the stories you be able tell and the pictures you can share with everyone.

Here are some pictures of the 2012 mud run that has already taken place in other cities across the good ol’ US OF A. I took these pictures from the Pretty Muddy facebook page.

Currently they are looking for volunteers to help run this event. The shift runs from 6:30am-10:30am, 10am-2pm, and 1:30pm-6pm. Some duties include checking participants in and giving them their t-shirt and bib, in the Gear Check Tent (where participants put their belongings while they race and enjoy the post race party), picking up trash around the festival area and changing area, or out on the course cheering participants on at the obstacles. Keep in mind there are no sitting areas so you will be on your feet and walking most of the time.
