Dirty Dash

The Dirty Dash is the muddiest, funnest 5.5 mile race! A few years ago I saw pictures of a few Boise friends doing it, so when I saw the Utah race would be right here in Utah, I jumped for the opportunity. I was able to convince a few ladies from my ward as well as my life-long friend Rachel Jester to run it with me. There were hoards of people, and so much mud. We started off running, but there were so many people, that at every obstacle, you'd have to wait about 5 minutes just to go over it. Next time I'll definitely have Joe come along with the camera and get more pictures of the obstacles.  Pictures are definitely worth a thousand words

A special kids race "Piglet Plunge" took place in the afternoon. Sterling ended up running the second half of the big race with me, so only Winter and Ginger participated. Getting dirty is so fun!

  I hadn't seen Rachel for 14 years. Her mom and my dad were friends in high school, so any time we used to vacation in the US, we'd visit them. Rachel just found out she is pregnant, so her husband Aric ran the race in her place.
The only not-fun thing: trying to clean up the heaps of mud that was EVERYWHERE! Even after scrubbing in the shower, Ginger looked like she hadn't bathed in months at church on Sunday.
