The Stampede 2012

IMG_0003Mable’s Last Mudrun before her knee gets fixed was moved because of some regulatory issue, but it turns out the replacement event location was much better in that spectators had access to almost the whole field  and at the last minute the final obstacle the “Bug Zapper” was also scrapped not that we really missed it, 10,000 volts really hurts and in the Tough Mudder had me almost in tears

The  numbers were stickers, they leave me again considering designing a shirt that has a clear pocket in front as the stickers fell off at the first sign of water much better than finding pins in mud though they also had us write the number on our arms

This time the start line had flames to send us off

The usual start a bit of a run then we hit the Ice Baths

Yep there’s ice in there and its Freezing

and well it’s not a mud run without Mud …. and lots of it

and of course when you are covered in mud there’s nothing quite as fun as trying to climb a 10ft wall…. with only a small bit of rope to assist you

Knew there was a reason we did this

Followed by a good wash off with the help of the Local RFS

This fella seems to have caught the crazy, or just likes to be thought of as a crumbed cutlet

the Sunday Roast….. being that the event was held on a Saturday I’d call  it a Saturday roast, but meh,

in Lieu of the Bug Zapper we were given a super long mud buffet … Woo
