For the past few years JD has ran/biked in a race called the Muddy Buddy. This is a 6.2 mile run/bike that you do with a buddy. One of you runs while the other bikes. At each transition point you do an obstacle and switch to the bike or running. It always looked like fun, but I was always busy with my kiddos to train. This year my kids seemed to make that transition from being completely helpless to pretty handy to have around the house. So, this year I said to heck with it...I'm going to do it. I talked my sister in law Rachel into it and we were pumped! We began to train and that lasted oh...about 2 weeks. I have a joke that I am the skinniest out of shape person you will ever meet...and I'm not kidding! You would think that I would have running in my blood since my dad runs 100 miles trail runs...how amazing is that???? You rock dad!!!
Race day was upon us before we knew it. Our day started off at 5am getting to the site and checking in. JD and my brother in law Chad came out with the kids. They had made signs to motivate us.
Goal #2 - Don't finish last
Goal # 3 - Don't die!
