(at the end of the race last year...totally pooped! pic by mariah)
think back one year and four months ago. m-hm...that's the day...the day of the mud run 2008! ours was june 14th. what a fun race the camp pendleton mud run is! my gosh! i can't wait to run it again tomorrow. if you're unfamiliar with it, it's a 10k with several obstacles in it, including climbing two five-foot walls, crossing a river, diving through mud). i did it last year with my fellow brother and sister-in-laws, my dad and best buddy, cari. it was killer hard, especially the ridiculously forever long hill around mile 1 or 2. i couldn't believe how it never seemed to end. the plus? this year i know exactly what to expect! i'm prepared (more or less) for it this time. i'm planning on bettering my time from last year, 1:26:39. i know i can do it! wish me luck ya'll!
