Fourth of July 2008
Up early and off to Ft. Lewis with Toni and her husband Walter. Alex and I met them at a place called the Roy Y (a transit center)and went on to Ft. Lewis from there. We did our sign in, schwag bag pick up and T-shirt collection, warmed up a bit and at 0900 nearly 300 folks took off on a 7.5k Mud Run. Rainier CrossFit was well represented and had some gazelles that went on to win the team run in a killer time that I don't remember...34 something I think. Undulating course with some steep hills both up and down, easy obstacles and a mud pit toward the end. A gal tackled me in the mud pit toward the end because was passing her. She rode on my back as I crawled. I've never mud wrestled a woman before. Slippery. Alex tore the course up with a 36 something and just destroyed my 43:37. His time won the under 14 age group and mine was good enough to take the 50 to 55 age group. Well organized race, fun course and nice awards.
