    The heat was the ONLY reason I didn’t do this one! My hubs and I did the Warrior Dash in January and it was a PERFECT day but I was still super hot. I couldn’t imagine June. Maybe try that one next year? They have 13 obstacles and you hit the first one after a quarter mile I believe. It was SO FUN. We’re doing it again next year. Join us! 🙂

    Just thinking about your run in the 11 am Florida heat makes me feel dehydrated. Way to rock it!

    That actually looks like fun! When I read the title I wasn’t so sure I would be interested in something like a mud bash but if it was warm out and I got to cool off every so often I would definitely sign up for one 🙂

    Love the blog! I can’t believe you ran with your camera. We were at 830 and it was hot then. I can’t imagine 11.

    Looks like a lot of fun! Shame the course wasn’t muddier. Hopefully you’ll get your fill of mid through 12 miles in December.

    I did one today too and it was so so so dirty! The first 3.5 miles were dry and uphill in the heat, and then remaining 2.7 were mud. Fun, but the shower situation after was horrid.

    The Mud Bash looks like a lot of fun! There’s a similar race here locally, called the High Rock Challenge, but it’s done in teams. I bet it would be just as fun–I really need to check it out!

    The Slip ‘n Slide seems like a fantastic option after all that mud.
    (And I have to say, those medals are fabulous. Nice touch.)

    Looks really similar to the Warrior Dash, which I did in May and was super fun. Regarding the Tough Mudder, there is one obstacle that literally shocks you, that totally freaks me out.

    Wow that looks likes so much fun…but I don’t know how we;; I would have done in that heat! I looked at stuff about the tough mudder and I for one know I am not that tough. I would not run through the whole electrical field thing…no way!

    I don’t know if I could ever do something like that- all that mud doesn’t seem appealing! One of my old co-workers put together a team for a mud run next month and I opted out, but I would love to spectate 🙂

    A bunch of my friends completed the Tough Mudder last year (when I was recovering from ACL surgery)! They had a blast and all but one finished. It’s not to be taken lightly though — they trained for a few months for it! And you have to sign death waivers before you compete in it — one of the guys at my school signed up and ended up breaking his leg during one of the obstacles! Everyone said it’s a lot of fun as long as you’re smart during the race and you train beforehand. I want to do it in 2012!

    That looks like a blast! It seems like everyone is doing mud runs lately! That was always my favorite part about Cross Country, when it rained you got super muddy!
    I’m also a sucker for homemade potato chips 🙂

    I did the 9 am wave and it was still hot. I was hoping for more mud, less poop and less hay. Warrior Dash and MuddyBuddy were way better. The parking was horrible. My civic got all scratched up in that field of poo. And refreshments? Everyone I’ve ever done there are oranges, bananas, bottled water, etc, in addition to the beer tent. I sure hope the bulk of our entry fee went to save the ta ta’s bc I really can’t tell where else it went. I’m looking forward to the run in Tampa but I won’t do MudBash aka hay bash again.

    It looks like you guys had fun! I really like the variation of obstacles in this run. I did the Redneck Mud Run in Punta Gorda FL ( 1 1/2 hrs south of Tampa) a couple weeks ago. It had 17 obstacles which were mostly mud related and there was soooo much sand on the “running” part of the course. They are doing it again in March 2012.

    Haha I love some of the outfits people wore. The course def seems like it could have used a little more ‘something’

    I’d like to know where are the races that are just a course full of awesome water slides/sprinkler runs? Sign me up for those!!

    Also, sign me up for anywhere with homemade potato chips. Maybe as part of the race. Yummy.

      I have a waterproof camera that my boyfriend and I took turns taking pictures of each other with or we politely asked someone else to take a photo for us.
