Jailbreak 2013

Saturday morning Kyle and I got up bright and early to head off to the Jailbreak 5k Mud Run.  We were part of the 9:30 wave, there was a total of 10 with about 150 people per wave. We started right on time and the first half was the longest part of actual running. We got sprayed down several times with ice cold water haha (thanks to the fire department next door). The obstacles were awesome and the most intimidating for me was the tire climb which was about 15 feet high. I did it though! The 2nd to the last obstacle was my favorite, it was a low crawl through nothing but mud, it was hilarious.

We finished in about 45 minutes which I thought was pretty impressive considering all the obstacles. The awesome Brittany and her husband from Aviation of Love came out to cheer us on and take some pictures. I'm still waiting for the event photographer to post their pictures. Here are a few:



 
I was not expecting to get a medal but I'm really proud of it. I'm really glad we did it and now we have 2 more to look forward to. I caved and signed up for the 3rd one. If you ever have a chance to sign up for one DO IT! I can't wait until the Old Ironsides Mud Challenge this weekend. :)

Have a great day!

  11. I have friends that are trying to talk me into one of these, but I think I need to train a little bit (or a lot) more, first.

  12. So fun! Rob ran the 12:30 wave and I was tempted to sign up with him... until I saw some of the obstacles and realized I don't have the arm strength for that right now. So I'm hoping to do one with him next year!

  24. That sounds like so much fun. I can't do 'muddy' races b/c I can NOT run without my ipod, and well, it'd get ruined, lol. I'm doing the color run in September, and it's going to be rough b/c I don't want to take it b/c they spray you with stuff. I envy you!

    Well, I guess it'll be more like a 'color shuffle' for me, haha.
