Muddy Monday @MetConBlue Giveaway!

So I don't know if you guys have noticed, because there has been so much talk on my little blog about marathons, training, and races lately, but my last 2 races were actually Mud Runs. I ran Met Con Blue as my first race back post-op. And then the Warrior Dash just last weekend with my girls.

Because as much as I love the challenge running provides, and as much as I love competing against myself and the clock, I really just run for FUN! This little Darwinian Fail isn't going break any world records, qualify for Boston, or even so much as place in a local race. But that isn't why I lace up sneakers.

Running is FUN, it is the ideal release, and it is home to amazing community of people - and these silly mud runs capture all of that perfectly! It is a chance to head out with a group of friends, wear matching outfits, run through the mud, scale walls, climb cargo nets, jump over pits of fire, plunge down giant slip and slides, and just spend the day being silly!!

It is the perfect atmosphere for first-time racers. And it is great way to shake your sillies out when you training seriously. I recommend these runs to pretty much everyone!

Which is why I am so excited to giveaway...
