I could not wait for last Saturday to finally get here.
It was the day of the Mud Crusade obstacle course race and for once, I was not running solo.
This time we were a team.
|Here's Katy, Junior, and I waiting to sign our lives away at registration.|
You had to initial about a thousand lawyer generated statements that precluded any chance of filing a "I hurt myself" lawsuit.
|Initial, initial, initial ...|
|Emma did not seem too concerned about all of this legal stuff.|
Rick and I grew up next door to each other and we're still playing together.
|Emma and Katy got an early start at intimidating other racers.|
|... as did Jayce, the youngest member of our team.|
|The two excheerleaders got the prerace stretching going ...|
|Katy's boyfriend Rob gave his Mom one last hug before the Crusade began.|
|I followed suit with my girls.|
|There was a wide variety of pre-race stretching techniques.|
I borrowed mine from P90X.
Rob's were more artistic.
|Junior got a farewell wish from his awesome girlfriend Alexis.|
|Here we are, a few minutes before our 11:30 am wave took off.|
We look so clean and fresh at this point.
... that would soon change.
Stay tuned for part two and my longest YouTube video ever.
