Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.
“Otherwise, the mud was fun,” she said. “Once you commit to being muddy and know you’re going to feel gross and will be cleaning mud out of your ears for weeks after, it’s just plain fun.”
