For the first time, I did a Mud run! Woohoo! It was fun. The DJ was not exactly the most energizing and exciting. However, all that aside, it was definitely muddy after a bit. I can say that after about 10 mins, I was beat. There was one aid station which was right before a massive hill (obviously) and only one because it's a 5K course. It takes place in the scenic backroads of Washington just 30 minutes from Portland.
The people all around were nice, energy was amazing and the camaraderie is pretty nifty and can't be beat. We helped one another.
On a negative note, the first wet slide was REALLY rocky underneath and one of our buddies may have hurt his tail bone and some wind knocked out. He's ok, just hurt.....
I'd recommend this to any newbie to a mud run. I'm not sure I'd do the Tough Mudder or Spartan yet but well on my way!
