Muddy Buddy Recap

Sunday I did my first MuddyBuddy race in Boulder, and it was undoubtedly unlike anything I've ever done. If you get the chance to do a race in this series - do it. There is a carnival atmosphere, you get to play in the mud, it's a big race but without a competitive feel, and it's just a rockin' good time...

I hung with Stronger and fam...

I saw Bolder's playground, the Boulder Res...

I was entertained by 2 of the most adorable kids ever!

I crawled through a giant mud pit - twice!


Mud Mud Everywhere!




But the race did come at a price - my maybe stress-fractured foot that I decided to race on anyway wasn't able to be walked on when I woke yesterday morning. So, I'm on crutches for a stint and out of running for a few weeks. Despite probably making the injury a little worse, I'd do it again in a heartbeat given the chance.
I owe an extra special thanks to my super muddybuddy for running a lot faster than I did and keeping us reasonably competitive. You're the best C!
Thanks for joining me for My Daily Spin.

Yeah for the muddy buddy pics! I love the costumes. Very funny. And cute on the kids. :) When your kids see the photos, I bet they'll want to do one. Got any mud around there for an impromptu muddy buddy?

But oh no about your foot! Hope it heals fast.

My sister did one of these a couple of years back. Her pics look a lot like yours.

Take care of the foot!
