Well I totally forgot to post my recap of the Dirty Girl Mud Run I did back in June. June 28th my friend Irene and I completed the muddy obstacle run for the second year in a row at the Lake County Fair Grounds. I will just start this by saying this will be my last mud run. After running a half marathon I decided I would rather punish myself with 13.1 miles then mud.
The weather was warmer this year than last, which was nice. We got there early and was in the 9:15am wave. We ran some but walked a lot as the terrain is very uneven. Most of the course was full of other mud and dirt. This year they had a different organizer which had it's plus and minuses.
Free images (and good ones none the less)
More vendors and freebies
Free beer, and good beer too Summer Shandy
1 water station- a bit lacking for a mud run
Longer lines at the obstacles
You had to shower outside this year instead of in the tent, we skipped the shower
We had a good time none the less chatting and doing the course. We skipped some of the obstacles where you had to crawl low or climb into water or mud.

|My goal of no mud on the face...FAIL|
Like I said I won't be returning next year but I still recommend this race to anyone looking for a muddy good time. It was organized well, not as good as 2013 but still good.
|Love this picture!|
|Got to get Irene's number in the pic|
|We did it!|
