Dirty Girl Mud Run- July 11, 2015
The Dirty Girl Mud Run was one of my most memorable experiences this year. I volunteered for five hours at "Barn Burner"- a 20 foot mountain of inflatable stacked logs. Unfortunately, several of the logs deflated, which made ascending the mountain difficult. Fortunately, four other volunteers and I stepped up the plate- lending out hands, pushing, and pulling people up. It was amazing to see the wide range of people coming out to physically challenge themselves- some fit, some young, some old- people of all shapes, sizes, and physical abilities. It was also gratifying to hear so many people say how impressed they were with my strength (good things come in small packages, I say). After volunteering, I had the opportunity to run the 5K for free, which was also incredibly fun, muddy, and exhilarating. What a great opportunity to get some exercise and benefit breast cancer awareness!
