LoziLu Mud Run ~ "Race" Report

Yesterday I "ran" the LoziLu Women's Mud Run.  I had lots of fun!  It was super hot, but there was a nice breeze, a creek trek, water slide and plenty of aid stations.  I have to say that the water slide was probably the best obstacle I have ever encountered at a mud run!

The reason I say "ran" is because I only ran about half a mile.  It was just too hot and humid and those conditions combined with my asthma made me feel like I was breathing through a straw!  However, I have no shame in saying I walked most of it.  I finished and completed every obstacle and that is what truly matters to me!
The course layout was such that Mike was able to see almost all of the obstacles.  He missed the creek trek, although I'm sure he would have taken great pleasure in seeing me waist high in creek water ;) (I'm not a fan of water I can't see the bottom of !)

LoziLu puts on a great Mud Run and a percentage of the proceeds are donated to support leukemia and lymphoma research.

As you know, I love, love, love Mud Runs, so I'll probably do a couple more this summer.  However, I have yet to run an actual 5k.  My goal for the end of the summer is to find a cool 5k and actually RUN the whole thing ;)  Right now, my runs are more like rulks... You know, run then walk, then run, then walk...  I cover the distance, but have yet to be able to do it without walking at some point.  BUT, I WILL!

Peace ~
