@GoDirtyGirl 5K Mud Run (JOIN ME!)
I have been given the opportunity to participate in the Dirty Girl 5K on April 20th. A women's only, untimed, 5k obstacle course (with mud) event. I'm truly looking forward to getting muddy! I sincerely doubt I'll do a lot of the running, but I'll certainly be testing myself to see how well I can do.
It's being held out at Lake Lanier Resort. Here's what is in the description of the event:
"Run, walk, climb, crawl—you will experience it all. With obstacle names like H2OMG and PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff), you can expect to laugh until your cheeks hurt. But don't worry, if you get to an obstacle that's more than a challenge for you—hey, take one of the detours. Also expect safety throughout. Expect the event to go on rain or shine. Expect not to be timed. Expect some crazy team uniforms. Expect to leave with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment."
What's even better is that a portion of the proceeds are going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The promoters were even kind enough to give me a code for 20% off registration! Just enter code: DGATLBLOGGUEST when checking out.
It's a great way to make sure I keep on top of my fitness goals. It will give me something to measure myself against. Not to mention, just be plain fun! So, if you want to join me, I'm in the 9:45 wave on Saturday. We can coordinate costumes or something. :) If you can't join me, watch for photos at the end.
