And then there was MUD!!

The ‘goblet of fire’ is what started the stampede of warriors racing to the first obstacle.

¾ of a mile later the warriors climbed the hay hill and dropped down on the other side

The scrap yard of rusted wreckage was next. While running through the tires some warriors might have face planted and had the battle scars to prove it.

The next obstacle challenged the warriors up and over skills as well as their limbo skills…it’s called the BARRIOR BREAKDOWN

The Great Warrior Wall is only for true warriors…can you survive??

After feeling nauseated from the heights warriors then have to get low to the ground and dive into the darkness of the BLACKOUT. What you’ll find in there is too scary to say…
The few that made it out.

Crawl across the tangled mess of the chaotic Crossover. You have now reached half way.
Some choose to roll, others chose the hard way.

With no foot pedestals the giant cliff hanger challenges even the toughest warrior.

Maneuvering over and down a cargo net may sound easy, but not if it’s 30 feet high and there are 30 other people on it at the same time. Talk about some major rope burn.

To finish out the dash there’s the roast

And then there was MUD!!!

Most of our group before

My battle scars from the road rage obstacle.  I might have been that warrior that face planted :).

Most of our group afterwards

I feel like this picture really sums up the day!!

I'm sooooo glad we did this and I'm soooo glad that people were able to step out of their comfort zones (hhmmm Rachel and Shelley :)).  We all had a blast and can't wait for the next one...Maybe the Spartan Race or the Tough Mudder?

Get Muddy,

mmmm...Though Mudder says..."Our 10-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie." Not sure I want to do something designed by British SPECIAL Fores! : ) Just sayin' but the Spartan Race does look pretty fun!! I like the different levels they have, too! : )
