Cheers to the Freakin’ Weekend

Remember how I mentioned I like doing M.O.B. (mud, obstacles, beer) races?

This is the one I’m doing this weekend:

It’s going to be the longest and hardest one I’ve ever done.  This time around, I’m going to buy some gloves.  Because I don’t think I can handle this without ’em:

As always, I’m not doing it for time.  Just to prove to myself that I’m a badass and can finish a race as hard as this.  I think finishing is accomplishment enough.  And the obvious super-hot look of a gal exhausted, dehydrated, and covered in mud, right?

Want to see a few more of the obstacles?  (these are also from the race website)

This one's called the "Nutt Smasher"

Then, once I’m done, I’ll get a beer to celebrate.

I would probably write more today, but I’m too busy conserving my energy.  I think I’m going to start “hydrating” (why did we switch to calling it this when “drinking water” was perfectly acceptable?) now!  Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    If you lived closer to the Philadelphia area we think you’d love doing the Uncle Dave’s Ice Cream Jog ‘n Hog. Run 2 miles, eat a quart or pint of ice cream, run 2 miles back. Road trip?? But good luck this weekend with the mud run, earn that beer!

    p.s. Boss Hog follows your blog because he also has a house that’s he’s trying to fix up and finds the Ugly Duckling to be very inspiring!
