Why would people subject themselves to anything called a "Mud Run"? Possibly as a way to keep fit. Perhaps their lives and the lives of your loved ones depend on their agility, courage and grit. Plus, there is BEER at the finish line! The Muddy Muffs are using this "fun run" to train for a SERIOUS marathon this fall.
What do these women do when they aren't in a tu-tu, tennis shoes and tights?
Some of the Muddy Muffs might be on the white water rescue team, trying to rescue you if you fall in the ice cold rapids. They might also be on the recovery mission after the river has forced your body into a crack in a boulder at the bottom, and you have been wedged under the river for a week.
It might be a Muddy Muff who helps you while you are still entombed in the twisted metal of your vehicle. She can get that IV started before you are even inside the ambulance, and soothe you with her words and meds.
It could be a Muddy Muff who interrupts the two punks who are shoving you down on the train platform so they can take your computer and slice you up for fun. Muddy Muffs practice at the shooting range weekly, for their safety and yours.
Muddy Muffs can rappel down a cliff to assist you when you have taken a tumble trying to climb Half Dome. The ascender and friction knots are familiar to them, as is the locking carabiner.
The Search and Rescue person who locates and comforts your child when he gets lost in the woods might be a Muddy Muff.She will hydrate your kid and carry him out in her arms.
Who is that pretty Gal holding the oxygen mask to the face of a puppy suffering from smoke inhalation? She is a Muddy Muff.
Muddy Muffs stay on the phone with you in the darkest hours, helping you feel brave as you wait for help.
What do these women do in their spare time? One jets off to see the Eiffel Tower or Stone Henge, one trains dogs to find earthquake survivors, and another is a peer counselor. One is a prize fighter, one volunteers at a school for developmentally disabled children, one kick boxes, and one is into mixed martial arts.
Muddy Muffs - I salute you!

There was not enough room here for me to post photos of the many obstacles they had to conquer during this event. This film shows what the course was like...
