Here's the GoPro Hero video of our team at the MUD CRUSADE race in Jacksonville, Florida on 8 Dec 2012.
I stitched together short clips of almost every obstacle as we encountered them.
The clips were short, but the obstacles were many, so it is the longest video that I have posted here at Pure Florida.
It was shot with a GoPro Hero camera in a head mount.
This race was so fun, I've already signed up for the Rugged Maniac race in February and plan to do Extreme Mud Warrior in March.

Here's my magnum opus ... cheer up, it's not as long as "Gone With The Wind".

How many runners were in the race? Is that a typical number for these kinds of things?

Hey Pablo,
The folks in the video were just part of the 11:30am wave. They release groups of runners every 30 min to avoid crowding on the course. I bet there were over a thousand+ runners that day.

Awesome. I especially liked the inclusive atmosphere of your team. Every skill level seemed welcome and supported.

Still, I think I'll stick to road races.

I cannot tell a lie, I only watched parts of the video, but it looks like it was a BLAST!

I'm impressed. I might have tried it in high school, but that was back in 1804. No more, no more, though it looks like . . . fun?

It was a long one, but I made it for the team as much as the blog.
Next one is February, so you all get a break.
