I Just Completed the Rugged Maniac Mud Run

I’m not in the best shape I’ve ever been in, not even close, but after completing the Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race with no training, I’m feeling pretty freaking badass, and definitely more motivated! It was my first race ever, in my life, and I totally rocked it! Most of these are photos from the Rugged Maniac race page. I look like I am about to cry in a few of them. I may have been borderline dead in a few others. I definitely need to work on my form…and my grace lol. It was one of my best days ever, I overcame more than I thought I could, both body and mind. One of the best days ever, in my life. I can’t say that enough. I’m hook, obsessed, and can’t wait to do more!

The before and after photos are so incredibly different! When you look at the before photo, you can see the fear and apprehension on my face. I am not even sure why I am here or if I want to do this! When you look at the after photo, you can see the badass in my soul shining out.



This was more fun that I thought it would be. I thought that I would struggle the entire time and fail. I am not sure what lead me to think that way, but that was my mindset. With these two beautiful girls by my side, there was no way I could fail. Tiffany shouted at me in a way that only a Marine can, and Anje shared her first race with me. The three of us conquered this race together! There were 25 obstacles over the 5k course, and I tried every single one. I hit the second of three rafts and flipped over, before I knew it I was flying head first into the water. I made it half way across the rings before my upper body strength failed me. Aside from that, I finished all the other obstacles!  I got stuck at the top of a giant wall, and couldn’t figure out how to climb over and down. My fear of heights got the best of me, but Anje climbed back up to talk me over the wall.
