Push Away the Screen: Pretty Muddy Family Edition

The Tampa Trio and I participated in our first ever mud run TOGETHER this past Saturday. We were invited to experience the family edition of Pretty Muddy. Our wave was scheduled to leave at 12:30, and we arrived at 11:30, so we had a little bit of time to kill. Thankfully Pretty Muddy realized that children would be present and had a bounce house and corn toss game for them to play.

This year the race was held at Colt Creek State Park. Loved that it was held at a state park. I much prefer to pay for parking fees to go to the upkeep of a state park.

First off, I have to say that I loved starting in a later wave. We went out to Busch Gardens the night before so we were all tired and it was nice to be able to sleep in a little bit and not have to get up at the crack of dawn to drive out for a mud run!

Ronin was so excited to run that as soon as they counted down 3, 2, 1, GO, he took off and I caught a glimpse of him way off in the distance after the mud slide, and then didn't see him again until the finish!

The first real obstacle was the mud slide. They instructed us to go down head first, but my girls said "but my mama always says to go down slides feet first" so they refused to go down head first. Silly girls. I did go down head first and got fairly muddy.

We also had a lot of fun climbing walls.

And while the girls said that the mud slide was their favorite, they both really liked the obstacle "Social Networking." It was probably the most challenging of all the obstacles, but they still manged to whip themselves up and over that net like it was nothing!

And before we knew it we were at the finish line where we managed to connect with Ronin who claimed he had already taken a shower. Tongue Out

The kids and I had a totally great time together at Pretty Muddy. Having just completed Tough Mudder in October, Pretty Muddy was really  a walk in the park for me, but I had so much fun with the #TampaTrio. My kids did say that they wished it was longer and I found it weird that there was NO water available on the course but I knew they'd need water even if there was water available, so when I run with my kids, I always bring along my handy dandy Polar water bottle. This came in handy for not only drinking, but also for flushing mud out of eyes. Wink

I hope that they kids and I run many more mud runs together because we had a blast!

Have you ever done a mud run with your kids??
