Six days after setting my PR at the ING NYC Marathon, I did the Mud Run at McGuire Air Force Base with a group of avid runners.
Thanks to Bill for suggesting this race!
This is a first for the event and it was great – 6.2 miles of mud and sweat.
The 10K course encompassed different types of terrain, including asphalt, dirt, hills, water hazards, a jaunt along the tarmac, and of course, mud! There were mud pits, rope climb walls, belly crawls, a tire course, wall climbing, creek traversals and more. It’s the most fun I’ve had at a race.
I am definitely doing this again in 2009!
Here are some pics I took of my teammates along the course: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sconzof/sets/72157609922432845/
