Pre-race routine:

Not a timed event, just an opportunity for women to get out and challenge themselves and have fun being active while raising money for breast cancer awareness.

I did this event with 6 of my ice hockey teammates and the one's 19 year old daughter, so 8 of us total in the group.

We had nice looking team shirts made up that on the back read, "For Tits and Giggles, Dirty Girl Mud Run 2016, Team Black Widows" and had two muddy hand prints near our bosoms on the front.
Event warmup:

Walking back and forth from the cars to registration to the cars to the event start.

Comments:

15+ obstacles and lots of mud! Mud in between obstacles, often quite deep, made running virtually impossible in many places, not that our intention was to run. Not everyone in the group is a runner, so we mostly walked to accommodate those folks but did some easy running here and there.

Most obstacles were pretty easy, I don't think the intention is for this to be a difficult event but rather one that is inclusive yet challenging for some folks. We did all but one obstacle which had a HUGE backlog that we really didn't want to wait in, I'm sure it would've been longer than 1/2 hour. Probably close to half of the obstacles had waits of varying times.

It was a very pretty day and the sun was out, which is a true rarity and treat these days!

I saw a 2.5-3' black snake on the bank of a small pond and freaked some of the other runners out when I showed it to them. I tried to get a pic of it but it was camera shy and slithered into the water.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. My intention was to have a fun day with my friends and not get hurt for my first tri of the season next weekend and both goals were accomplished! Actually, no one got hurt which is a big bonus!

Warm down:

Got beer at the race site. What a surprise, the Black Widows drinking beer?! ;) After that we got cleaned up as best as possible with the hoses provided and changed clothes, then headed to Chili's for food, mainly guacamole, which the one girl was madly craving and talking about all race! We totally destroyed multiple baskets of tostada chips, salsa and guac. I hardly touched my meal, so it went along home to be eaten later.

It was a great day to be outside (we thankfully cleared out before the storm hit) and a wonderful day spent with friends. I love my Widows!

You girls are WAY TOO CLEAN for having finished a Dirty Girl. You need to go back and look at my after pic from the one in Denver

Glad you had a good time. Sad that there were backlogs. I don't recall having to deal with that .

The mud dried to a color that was not far off from our skin tone, plus one of the last 'obstacles' was wading through a thigh-deep pool of cold water which somewhat removed some of the mud.  Two of our girls owned the getting muddy process by rolling in it every chance they got and are very, very muddy!

We had the "rinse" pool as the last obstacle too, and still looked like this at the end.

One of our last obstacles was to army crawl through a small tube. Our heads were barely above the mud/water

In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.

My first reaction to wearing a skirt while running was, “are you crazy?” I am no girly girl. I then tried one of the newest skirts from Nicole DeBoom’s TRIKS line and I can tell you I’m hooked.
