My first 5k since the parasite is this upcoming Saturday.
I’m a long way from running a 50 miler with 6 days notice.
I got an email today. It read:
Get the Dirt
Get ready to share mud, sweat and cheers with couple thousand amazing women as the time is almost here.
Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain will be like you’ve never seen it before! Music will be thumping, energy will be pumping and Dirty Girl tents will be up and ready! In addition to running, walking, climbing and crawling over obstacles like the Funky Monkey (you’ll see), your registration includes some awesome perks like a cool t-shirt, a special Dirty Girl necklace, friendship, laughter and one free adult beverage, for those of age, to help bring your after party up to a nice respectable level!
So…let me back up and give you the description of the race:
Why Get Dirty?
Dirty Girl is a 5k women only run for women of all ages and athletic abilities. Don’t worry, it’s not a “race” in the traditional sense. It is an untimed obstacle course designed to push you slightly out of your comfort zone, but only as far as you are comfortable going. Forming teams is encouraged, and so is helping your fellow Dirty Girls get through to the finish. At a Dirty Girl Mud Run you’ll find excitement, laughter, and camaraderie—as well as lots of music and even some adult beverages. It’s a day you’ll never forget.
Um. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!
You would think I was training for an ultra with how much I’ve been thinking of this lately!
(Funny story, while looking up the info for the race, I ended up on dirtygirl.com…..um…..not the same thing….)
I told you!
Huge thank you for the peer pressure from Fern, Stephanie, and Michelle!
Live life, don’t just survive it!
Parasite Attack!!! <— If you’re confused why I’m stoked about a 5K… Well…THIS stoked. 😀
