As I mentioned last week, this was a two mud run kind of weekend. So on Saturday, on only two hours of sleep, Spencer and I headed down for the Gladiator Rock n Run in
Irvine. We arrived in plenty of time and proceeded to
get ready and go.
This was a four mile mud run with plenty of obstacles. We jumped into ice cold water. We crawled through mud a couple of times. We ran across an old air strip. And we crawled through the longest mud pit they could build – set a world record in fact.
However, I wasn’t exactly thrilled with that mud pit. The barbed wire they had for us to go under was too low. I love getting muddy, but I like to keep my face out of the mud. It really irritates the eyes if you go all the way under. Sorry, but so low I have to do that takes all the fun out of it.
There were some other hard obstacles, especially the dumpster dive. But I made it through that one this year. I tried the big wall at the end twice as well, but I just couldn’t quite make it over this year. Last year, I did it, but this year I just kept sliding.
I got pretty scratched up, which is funny because I don’t remember it happening. But I’ve got a scrape on my elbow and knee and several scratches on my legs.
Clean up was a joke again. They had some company there promoting their soap, but they gave us hardly any time to get clean and hardly any water. I still had quite a bit of mud on me when we were done. But we survived.
Yes, some complaints. But overall it was fun. I’ll be seeing them in
