So, we survived.
The race, er challenge, was a blast and not nearly as hard as I thought it would be!
I knew there would be a few obstacles I physically wouldn’t be able do (the monkey bars and rings, which were basically just swims for me!), but there were some that surprised me. I thought it would be easy to walk the plank:
But it was so much higher than it looks – and the water (mud?) was 17 feet deep!
I actually panicked for a hot second when I hit the water.
And the mud mile?
I thought for sure I’d hate it with a passion but I actually kind of liked it.
It was challenging getting up those 8 ft piles of mud (x8!).
I obviously wasn’t the only one who liked that obstacle.
And despite a few bad bruises:
It was totally worth it.
Even the Electroshock Therapy was worth it (where I got shocked no less than 10 times – and, damn, it hurt!).
But this picture makes me laugh every time:
Deagan (tall guy in the middle) is laughing at Jimi (in the blue) for falling. His mouth is wide open in laughter while his teammate falls from the shock. True love right there, people.
The WODFathers are Tough Mudders!
And that pancake throw down?
It was pretty much a draw.
Banana pancakes for the win!
Pancakes: banana, blueberry, or chocolate chip?? Chocolate chip for me!
