Disclosure: I was compensated an entry fee to share my Dirty Girl experience with you but all opinions and experiences are 100% my own.

I did it! The Dirty Girl Mud Run was this past weekend and it was so much fun! I’m SO glad I chose the last wave because it was cold all morning (around 65) but had warmed up to the 70’s in the afternoon. Hey! That’s cold for me – especially considering I was getting wet.

Here I was “before”. It was spread out and open – almost quiet! I’m glad I could hear the music most of the time since I didn’t want to bother with my phone.

Getting into a pit of cold mud water with my shoes and socks on went against everything my head was telling me.

I had to give proof that I was actually IN the mud since I didn’t hold much dirt on the outside of my clothing (trust me, it was all inside!)

The boys wouldn’t hug me!

Colton ran the last stretch with me. It’s hard running with a cup of water and dirt in each shoe.

And then I went home and took a shower. Would you do the Dirty Girl Mud Run

Cancer survivors run at all Dirty Girl events for free, and Dirty Girl will give $250,000 in 2013 to breast cancer charity Bright Pink. It’s the largest women’s only mud run in the nation!
