STORIES

Do you have a story to tell about your mud run experience? See what our runners are saying.
"Have to tell you about something that touched my heart this morning at the mud run. I was sort of nervous since it was the first one Pete and Sara did. I got a knot in my stomach when I heard the mud pit was 5 ft. Sara's height. A girl around Sara's age and height walked in and looked like she had already given it her all. One Marine in the pit stopped his usual forceful yelling, went to her and asked if she was ok. About in tears, she shook her head, no. He took her by the arm and said nothing bad is going to happen to you. I'm here. I've got you. He gently repeated this as he led her to the finish line just beyond the pit. I felt better. I knew these guys, although tough, wouldn't let any harm come to my baby."~Beth
"This is our groups 1st mud run. Our ages vary from 61 (in 16 more days) , 51 to under 30. We also vary in medical to physical abilities. But this didn't stop us. My husband was our Captain because he was fool enough to do this with 3 women. He struggled but we never left him alone. He found him a bromance, I got dunked, one came close to terms with her ickines of muddy, dirty water and the other one belly flopped down the shower hill. Needless to say that with all that and 6 shampoos, 1 bath tub scrub, a good night's sleep; count us in we will be back. For all the good that this provides, shoes given away, veterans to tots taken care of I can think of no other way to spend playing in the mud all day"! ~Theresa

"My first Mud Run, completed it with my three children. One of which is active ARMY. So while we were heckled because of our Army shirts it was all in good fun. All the Marines helping along the course were awesome with my 10 yr old son. We will be back next year, with more Army buddies". ~Stephanie
"First mud run. My husband came home from a deployment a month ago and while he was gone he was running alot of 5k runs to get in shape. So i decided that i wanted to be able to do this with him and i lost 95 pounds and we completed the pollywog run with our 2 sons age 3 and 9. It may not have been the full 5k run but Im very proud of myself for being able to do this with my Husband and Boys. We all had such a blast and we plan to work on our goal of getting me prepared for the full 5k. It was so much fun for the whole family and it was awesome to see our Boys having such a good time and accomplish their goal of finishing the pollywog. We are definatly making this a yearly family event and we cant wait until our Baby Girl is big enough to go through it with us". ~Brandy
