The Moment You Might Have Been Waiting For

Mud Run Pictures!!!
You're excited I can tell.

the group of people working their way to...

... the first water obstacle!

here's Bethany taking her turn

one of the five men team-running as Magnum PI

I think the runners interrupted these marines running drills
while I was taking this picture, Bethany heard a guy running past say, "hey, the real studs are over here!" sadly, I didn't get a picture of him.

the first hill...

a rear view of team double dare

we had been walking when this guy offered to take a picture. we decided it'd look better if we ran. I don't think I'm very convincing...

marines in camo in the bushes

Bethany pegged this guy at the beginning as the one to beat. here she is beating him.

one of the beautiful views we had.

in the first water/mud pit with the first wall coming up behind me
(Bethany lifted herself up over all of them. I asked for help from the marines.)

crossing the reservoir.

the wicked witch of the west
(Dorothy, the tin man, the lion, and the scarecrow - behind her - were all running too)

the nasty mud hill (devil hill)

going up devil hill.

at the top looking down
(notice the guy spraying a firehose at people and down the hill - the hill was super-slick, if you're planning on running it, here's a tip - walk up the water that's running down. it's easier to get traction there.)

the final mud pit
(we had to crawl under the flags)

at the end. I knew I had mud on my face but I didn't realize it was so concentrated...
