Well, we did it! HM, his sister, and I finished the Dirty Dash yesterday. People told me that you could "get as dirty as you want" leading me to believe you could also stay as clean as you want. Not true as it turns out. It was diiiiiirrrrrrtttttty. We started out the day looking so sweet:
For those of you who don't know, mud is a slippery devil! There were a few trenches that you had to climb through and trying to climb out of the banks was nearly impossible. We all have whip lash today from our slips and falls. Some of us fell more than others- you know who you are!
Then of course there were the walls. Out of four, I could only make it over two. We hurdled over hay bails, crawled through muddy tunnels, waded through muddy water up to our waist, swung over slop on a rope swing, and even slid down a huge muddy slide.
It was gross but FUN FUN FUN. I highly recommend doing this race if you can. Make sure you shell out $4 for the hot shower at the end, otherwise you will freeze to death! We took a finish line photo and I will definitely post that when it comes in. Until then you will have to make do with these photos I stole from other blogs and Facebook pages!
