This weekend I participated in my very first 5K race: LuvMud 2010! The race was a 5k obstacle race where we ran, jumped, climbed and crawled through mud to reach the finish line. There were 6 obstacles (bear crawl, slide, wall climb, hay bale jump, etc.) to complete - the final obstacle was huge MUD PIT (hence:LuvMud) and costumes were strongly encouraged! The race was a fund raiser for Habitat for Hope, a non-profit organization that supports, serves and cares for families that have a child that is critically or chronically ill. Swankys Taco Shopsponsored our 4 person team and I designed the (awesome) tanks we wore!
The race was hard work, but LOTS of fun and we were all super glad that it was such a success (there were over 1,000 people registered for the race - I think that's pretty good for the first year!)
