Having participated in the 2013 Goodwill Mud Run, Dad, Mom, Haydn, and I were prompted to do it again three years later. Since Ansa was now (in our eyes) old enough to do it, and she felt ready, she too joined us.
The muddy course stretched just over three miles and led you through, under, or over 35 obstacles. These challenges ranged from swinging on a rope over a pool of mud to army crawling your way under low strung wire. During the year this course is used to train those seeking to join the military. Ansa was terrific by remaining her joyful, full energy self the entire time.
Sadly, due to a thunderstorm, we were not able to complete the last leg of the course. Though somewhat disappointed, we were okay. Besides, since we were among the final people present, we were able to take advantage of the food that had been up for sale but was now up for grabs. Yum! 😋 😋
