Recently, I was approached to join Tampa’s Pretty Muddy event on November 10. Though have to admit, mud events don’t float my boat. I honestly had no desire to do one because of all the…well…mud. After all, I pay good money for these running shoes! Why would I go tromping and trailblazing through mud only to ruin my running shoes?
Then, I discovered the Pretty Muddy. It’s the only all female pink mud run with “architectural obstacles” which I hope means there is no electric fence. There is, however, a huge inflatable slide. And there are bubbles.
A muddy event with bubbles? Is there bubbly at the finish line too? Pink champagne for a pink race would be a nice touch. Or maybe they could serve mud slides once you cross the finish line?
But the best part is that participants can choose not to do the obstacles. “Every obstacle will have a sign showing you around it. Only do the ones you feel comfortable doing and don’t feel bad going around a few – this is your day, do what you want to do.” – Pretty Muddy
I know. I know. That’s lame and I’m o.k. with that, because at the Pretty Muddy (and only the Pretty Muddy), if I don’t want to crawl through mud, I don’t have to do it. It’s my day, my race and I can do what want. See, now that’s my kind of mud run.
But who knows, I may have a change of heart. After all, “the obstacles were built with “fun” being the number one objective. Some will challenge you a little, some might challenge you a lot – but we’ll be there every step of the way to help you through it.”
So, I’m all signed up. Now all I need is the outfit. I’m thinking pink camouflage. What do you think?
