If your fantasy is seeing a bunch of women run and crawl through the mud, you’ve come to the right place. Me? I’ve always wanted to roll around in the mud. That made today perfect.
What a grueling, exhilarating experience. I had no idea what I was in for when I signed up for the 10K adventure MUD RUN for M.S. in Newtown Square.
I was prepared to do it alone until I started talking to a wonderful group of young women from South Jersey. Jenna Stevens called her team Kathe’s Krusaders in honor of her mother who died from Multiple Sclerosis.
Jenna, Stephanie, Melanie, Rebecca, and Colleen took me in like I was one of their own (even though I was absolutely the slowest runner) and we had the best time going through the crazy, challenging obstacles.
Just watch this video and see how we went from nice and clean to a grimey, dirty, united, awesome team.
(If you didn’t figure it out, I’m the one in the baseball cap.)
The run was tough and as you see I had one awful crawl over the log. I probably won’t be able to move tomorrow, but I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I don’t know much about Jenna’s mom but I was thinking how proud she would be of her daughter and friends today. What a wonderful spirit they brought to the race and I’m so thankful they shared it with me. I feel somehow it was fate that we met and were united by the experience.
I also wanted to thank my generous co-workers in the NBC 10 newsroom who helped me raise $100.00 for M.S. one day before the race.
Kathe’s Krusaders rock!!! WHOOOOAAA! A fabulous first!
