LoziLu 5K Mud Run!

This weekend, I did something I never thought I could do. I completed a mud run. It was one of the hardest things I have done ever, but I feel so amazing that I DID it.

As the date started to approach, I started getting nervous. I have never done anything like this, and honestly I didn't train at all for it (terrible idea, btw).

When I arrived to the race location, I met up with Courtney, a friend from High School, and her two friends Kimsey and Erin. They were really awesome and so fun to race with. The race itself was really fun! The obstacles were challenging, but I was able to do all of them. The hardest ones for me were the giant bouncy slide, and the claustrophobia tunnel from hell.

The slide was hard because you were covered in mud and you had to climb up a slippery surface. I was terrified that I was going to fall. And I get claustrophobic, so crawling through that thing was terrifying for me. I just kept saying to myself (out loud, so the other people probably thought I was nuts) "I am not stuck, I can get out. I can breathe, I am okay."

All in all it was really fun. I am proud of how well I did, and I was able to do every obstacle. In the end it was mind over matter. Now for some fun pictures!

So thank you LoziLu for such an awesome experience! Thank you for pushing me WAY out of my comfort zone and for proving to me that I can complete a mud run! I can't wait to do it again next year and see how different it will be. 

Have you done a mud run? Did you feel like a beast afterward lol
