- Roadtrip to Atlanta
- Running a 5k
- A girls weekend
- Getting muddy
Oh wait~ all of those things are happening in one awesome event! The Dirty Girl Mud Run in Atlanta! Who's psyched? <---- this girl!
I spent most of the winter training for my half marathons. I was very focused on speed, distance, and time. I love running, but it was definitely hard. I needed a fun run on my agenda. A run where I could just enjoy the event, my friends, and still be challenged - enter the Dirty Girl Mud Run!
Dirty Girl is a 5k course with 11 killer obstacles along the course. Yes, there's a mud crawl and other fun obstacles like the "Utopian Tubes" and "The Hangover".
If you are a new runner this race is especially great for you. It's designed for runners of all speed levels with waves spread throughout the day. It's all about the fun and the accomplishment of finishing. I personally think 5k's go by so much faster with obstacles. You're having so much fun running from one challenge to the next that all too soon you realize that you've run 3.1 miles.
Did I mention it's for girls only? Yup, no boys allowed!
I also like to support races that give back. Dirty Girl gives a portion of proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and they support an entire wave for Cancer Survivors.
Dirty Girl has runs across the country. I'm taking on the mud in Atlanta on April 28 at Aaron's Amphitheater. They have races across the country this year, so see if you can get muddy too!
