Down ‘n Dirty


With the theme of unusual 5k races, we completed theĀ Dirty Girl Mud Run at the beginning of the month out in Grayslake. It was hot, muddy and actually, a lot of fun. Some of the obstacles were just down right painful (climbing through mud that sat atop gravel and concrete…ouch) and others brought out my he-man strength (still amazed how quickly I climbed over that wall). And we did it all with devil horns. Want to see if there’s one coming your way? Check out Pretty Muddy Mud Run.

Dirt Devils: Suck it up. #makeitcount

The aftermath

Color Me Happy


A little belated, but here are some photos from the Color Run. It was ever so fantastic, despite the fact that the green did not wash out of my armpits or belly button for more than a few days. Note to self: Don’t run through the color bomb areas with your arms up and mouth wide open. Quite unpleasant.

In keeping with the theme of doing 5ks that get messy, this Sunday, we’re doing the Go Dirty Girl Mud Run. It should be a hot one, but with two of my Color Run buddies, I know it will be nothing short of a hoot. We’re The Dirt Devils.
