OK... a little more detail on the mud run. It was a 5k run with 18 obstacles Probably half of the obstacles were basically just mud boggs to run through. There were several walls to scale. The very first obstacle was a 5 ft wall to go over. There was a 10 foot verticle wall, a 10 foot slanted wall with a rope to walk up. That wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. THer was a 15 foot A frame "ladder" to climb over, a 10ft rope ladder wall, a couple of mud pits with wire strung across the top to force you done in to the water. There was a tunnel to crawl through. Another crawling obstacle had drainage pipes on either end of a huge water/mud pit. The entrance sloped down and the exit sloped up and had rope inside to help you crawl out. Thee were several ditches to jump across. The first one was mostly a mud pit and when I landed on the other side my feet slipped out from under me and I landed on my backside. Got covered in mud up to my neck. One of the obstacles was a ring swing with a water pit..... yeah I got the first ring, swung to grab the second and gravity promptly took over.... Great fun! The very last obstacle was a combination of a verticle wall with a rope to climb, a ladder to get you to the top platform (about 25 feet up) and the way down was a huge water slide into a muddy water lake.... I came off the end of the slide, feet went up in the air, and skipped I across the water like a stone and then sunk like one.... HOLYCRAP that water was cold! When all is said and done it was a blast... I will certainly do it again, and I will be ready for the 5 mile race in August.....
