Running Through the Mud for a Good Cause
You can’t see my face right now, but I’m kind of excited.
You see, on July 17, I’ll be taking part in what has to be the coolest fundraising event ever!
One trail, hundreds of runners, and a LOT of mud!
Yup. For the second year now, the city of Waterloo, Ontario is hosting the one and only, ridiculously entertaining Dirty Dash. Appropriately titled. The best part is that all proceeds are going to the Special Olympics, so how can you possibly pass this up??
It seems that we rarely get a chance to let loose and act like kids these days. We’re so wired and stressed that we tend to forget what it’s like to kick back, relax and simply enjoy getting a little bit dirty.
I choose to embrace the little kid (with the sloppy hair and big nose) that’s inside of me. It’s fun to be a kid.
As for the race itself, I’m still deciding whether to do the 4km or 8km run/crawl. The little kid inside of me is saying just stick with the 4km – have some fun and enjoy the mud! But the competitive beast inside is begging me to forget that shit – go for the 8km and get that first place trophy. Hmmm interesting battle. It’ll probably be a game time decision.
Choice of clothes will be interesting too. Whatever I choose to wear will probably never see the light of day again.
So if you’re in town and looking for something crazy to do this upcoming weekend, come check out the 2nd Annual Dirty Dash.
I’ll do my best to get some pictures up next week. Like I said, I’m excited!
Time to get dirty!
