With all the hype going around, I finally gave in. I finally found the inner will and guts to sign up for my first obstacle race ….in the mud.

I am not gonna lie, the idea of a mud race scares me. But…never say never, right? 🙂

I am doing the race with my husband. We thought we’d try something different this time for a change. I’ve never done this before, so honestly, I don’t know what to expect. So, I began researching about these types of races online. I’m glad that majority of the people who have done it say it’s doable and fun.

I added a Mud-stash race countdown widget at the left side of my blog page and it says 15 days to go as of today (Aug 24). Yikes! I am both nervous and excited.

I’ll keep you guys updated. Wish me luck (I definitely could use it)!  🙂

To all hardcore mudathletes out there, do you have any tips or advice for us newbies? 🙂

How do we prepare for it? What type of training do we need to do for mudruns? What should we wear?

Do we have to be totally nuts and goofy to enjoy it? 🙂

    A year ago I did my first mud run and I thought this is so NOT for me! Now look at me! I am a mud run fanatic!!! The best advice I can give you is just relax and have fun. Enjoy the camraderie of the race. That is the biggest perk of obstacle / mud runs. People WILL help you along the way if you need it. For training I would stick to running and some cross training especially for the upper body. Make sure you wear something moisture wicking. Def not any cotton! That will just wrigh you down as the mud accumulates. You are gonna have SO much fun!

      Thank you so much for the tips! 🙂 I really appreciate it! 🙂

      Do we have to run with trail shoes or just with our regular running shoes?

      They said your shoes will really get messy and I will end up donating them? What if I don’t have old running shoes? Do we really need to donate them?
