Why Yes, I Am Awesome

Last Weekend I ran the USMC Mud Run at Fort Jackson.  If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a ~4 mile obstacle course.  You run, and are timed, as a team.  My team finished the course in an hour and four minutes which puts us roughly at median point of the thousand or so teams that ran this year.  We did lose 10 – 15 minutes when a person in front of us passed out and required medical attention.  One of my teammates is a doctor and helped him until they got him to the ambulance.  So it’s fair to say we could have finished in under an hour and maybe in as little as 50 minutes.  The best teams ran in the 35 – 40 minute range so we did allright.

If you’re wondering how the mudrun earned it’s name I’ve included pictures below the fold.  Keep in mind, my shirt was white when the race started.

updated to add link and fix spelling.
