On Saturday, May 12, the second annual Dirty 30 Race will take place.
The Dirty 30 is a mud run/obstacle course 5k that was created by my friends Vince and Melissa Parker. I ran in the race last year and it was a BLAST!!
The obstacles ranged from a cargo net to a “tire chandelier” to a round hay bale to various mud pits (naturally).
My personal favorite was the vertical climbing wall…hoisting yourself up and over a huge wall using just a rope and your own strength makes you feel fierce!
Speaking of fierce, Chris Barnes shot this pic of me in the last mud pit before the finish line. Check out the other great shots Chris took at last year’s Dirty 30 Race. Awesome!
The best part of this race was running with friends and family. Several members of my Bible study group participated:
And my sisters-in-law Ali and Katie ran as well:
Mud is not normally something I enjoy. 🙂 In fact, some days it even takes a lot for me to get outside! I’m more of a neat, tidy, indoors kinda girl. This race rocked my world, though, and I can’t wait to participate again!
BodSchool is putting together a Dirty 30 group this year. Leave a comment below or send me an email and I can give you a discount code that will save you money on your registration fee. We will be running in the 10 AM wave.
You don’t have to be a current member of BodSchool to run this (or any other) race with us in 2012. The more, the merrier, so join us!!
