1/2 Marathon and a Mud Run!

This was one crazy busy weekend for me, but it was also super fun.  I logged lots of volunteer hours, completed half marathon #6 for the year, got some snuggle time with 2 of my nephews, attended and volunteered at The Dirty Girl Mud Run.

The Madison Mini

On Friday I volunteered at the expo, it was held at Union South which is a great, pretty building, but at 9:30am the ramp next to it was already full, I had to go about a half mile away and park at a different ramp, it wasn’t bad but a little bit of a walk, luckily it was a beautiful day in Madison.  I worked at the Expo for a few hours handing out packets and shirts for the Half marathon.  They treat the volunteers really well at this expo, we were treated to pizza lunch, most volunteer gigs don’t feed you, so this was a nice perk.

Post expo ice cream, best part of volunteering was knowing I would be having this after.

The Race

I got up super early Saturday morning and headed to campus for the race, it was a 7am start and the weather was perfect.

Pre race, I think I'm ready for this!

The race went pretty good, the course was very hilly, but I took it one mile at a time.  I was pretty worried about my quad strain, but it didn’t bother me the entire race.  I walked each of the water stations and up a couple of hills, I was pretty happy with my race.

Ready to start!

Can't remember what mile these were at, but they made me laugh.

I also got an additional medal at the race for completing the M2 challenge, the first race was back in June, the Summerfest Rock n sole 1/2, so it was nice to have the challenge completed, there was a huge line for the second medal, but it went fast and I was on my way to the beer line(all about priorities!)
