mud run.

A few weeks ago, Dusan participated in a mud run up at Castaic Lake.  Upon signing up for the big event he enlisted a few other victims as well: his brother and his good friend Michael. 

"How does one get ready for a mud run?" I asked...
Shall I spray you with the garden hose as you army-crawl down the cul-de-sac? No?...hmmmm....

He opted to train his own way by taking late-night jogs around the neighborhood while listening to "Eye of the Tiger" on repeat.

Whatever he did....it worked.  5th place out of 2000 mud-runners...
not too shabby.

The night before the run, I checked the weather at Castaic Lake...40 degrees is not really my style.  These pictures are courtesy of one of my student's parents that happened to be there for her daughter.  Thanks Minda!

Dusan came home with crusty hair, a big smlie, and an army tag for a medal.  He is already looking to sign the 5 of us up to mud run in July.  I'm going to have to seek a higher source for motivation on this one.

That's amazing! Way to go Dusan. I need to sign up for that same bootcamp that got him into shape. ;)

Never heard of a mud run. Fifth place? Ancich superiority shows itself again! Any Olympic hopefuls among you?

Btw, trying to figure out the answer to your question about my running slide show. I created it in Picassa I think (isn't that sad that I have forgotten?) but got into it last night and for the life of me could not remember how I did it. It's in desperate need of updating anyway.

DUH. I'll let you know if I have an epiphany on it.

Snip Snap here we come. Can't WAIT to see where you fly!

p.s. Why didn't I just email this?!
