Muddy Buddy in 3 days!

I am getting so excited about doing Muddy Buddy on Sunday with Tina!

Tina is one of my Team Challenge teammates that was willing to brave this event. My friend either have done this before or have no desire to do it. It just seems like too much fun to pass up. How often do you get to trudge through mud in a high energy environment?!

When I was recruiting people to do this race with me I found out that not only was Tina willing to do this Muddy Buddy thing with me but we went to the same college- University California of Santa Barbara and graduated the same year! 2007! Coincidence? I think not!

I dubbed our team name to be Gaucho Girls. Gauchos are our college mascot. Its an Argentinian Cowboy. Ole!

What I'll really miss is being able to take pictures! I'm definitely not taking my camera and making sure I wear my ratty tennis shoes, shirt, capris etc. I'll have to depend on the photographer to do their best work there!

I'm excited to look like these ladies int he below picture! Haha. My biking abilities are really rusty so hopefully the trail isn't too crazy and the people won't be trying to run me off the road but should be too bad since the whole course is 6 to 7 miles.

This will be me and Tina in 3 days! haha

Thank goodness this week is recovery week and we're only doing 4.5 miles! Woo!


  1. this sounds like so much fun! you should try taking a waterproof disposable (they sell them at drug stores i believe). someone i know used one on a similar race and got some great pics! hope you have a great time!

  2. Rachel that's such a good idea! Maybe I'll look at the disposable camera and try to see if I can put it around my neck. Since I'll be biking, running, then going through an obstacle course I need to be hands free!
