Better than a girl’s night out? September’s Pretty Muddy Mud Run

| August 10, 2012 | Comments (1)

This morning I decided that I am absolutely the craziest person I know.  “What led to this drastic conclusion?” you might well ask.

I got up at 6.00 a.m. to go running.

But it isn’t just that crazy decision that has made me the craziest person I know.  Oh no.  What has made me the craziest person I know is the fact that I have decided to participate in the Pretty Muddy Mud Run.

Taking place in Orland Park on September 15, the Pretty Muddy Mud Run is an opportunity for women (only) to get together and have a crazy and hilarious time together while challenging themselves to walk, run or even crawl through an 5K adventurous obstacle course mud run.

While I am not the kind of person who has ever watched her kids playing in the mud and thought, “oh, I wish I could be doing that right now,” I am looking forward to trying something new and different with a group of women (whom I assume are feeling as crazy as I am) from the Chicagoland area.

If you think that this sounds like something you would like to try, take a look at the website to see how much fun the women in their pictures are having.  You can like them on Facebook or follow on Twitter.  (I for one have been encouraged by the fact that the women don’t look obnoxiously muddy in the pictures–is that wishful thinking?)

If you sign up before August 14, you will receive a free t-shirt with your registration.  Registration cost is $69.50.  You can sign up here (affiliate link).

Please don’t let me believe that I am the only crazy person out there!

Melanie blogs about life with four kids at her blog, tales from the crib.  She received a complimentary registration and t-shirt in exchange for writing this post.  Regardless, she is hoping that by sharing this information, she will encourage friends and family to join her in this crazy scheme!

About Melanie Myatt: Melanie stills feel like a child inside, even though she now finds herself the mother of four kids. Her student husband has promised that life will get easier when he is done with school, but she isn't holding her breath. In spite of two master's degrees, she's somehow never had a real job. Nevertheless, she dreams of the day when she can be . . . something. For now, she spends her days folding laundry, cooking, eating, cleaning up, wiping noses, changing diapers, and re-reading countless children's books. When she can, she tries to find time for some grown-up types of thoughts to record at tales from the crib. View author profile.
