the rugged maniac was the first run i've ever done. it was a 5k out in the boonies of brooklyn packed with a whole lot of running, steep hills, mud, climbing walls, tires, and obviously...more mud! it was a challenging run since i'm so out of shape, but overall it was a good time. especially since i had eight other muddy mama's running by my side. on the subject of my muddy mamas, seven of the eight girls have all had babies over the last year. they're all stars! until next time, go muddy mamas!
