Dirty Girl Mud Run

This year marks the 3rd year that I have volunteered at the Dirty Girl Mud Run Wisconsin.  It is the very first event that I ever volunteered at.  I only volunteered the first year because I was injured earlier in the year and by the time I thought I was healthy enough to run the race, it was sold out.  So I thought, what better way to be involved than to volunteer at it.  I had a blast that first year, even with the t-shirt mess and the crazy parking situation, it was still a lot of fun.  Then they added more events to the second year so I volunteered in Illinois and in Wisconsin.

Volunteering the second year in Wisconsin was great, I was stationed at an obstacle all day and met some wonderful people.  A few I had met in Illinois, like Jake, who when I first saw him I was like, hey you threw mud at me by the finish line in Illinois, from there the weekend only got better, he placed me at the barn burner, a large inflatable obstacle, that was my spot for the entire weekend.  I worked on my tan, hung out and had a blast.  There was even a Danny Gokey concert that night, which I stayed for.  I was only going to volunteer the first day but I had so much fun, met so many truly nice people (Jake, Tom and Casey) that I came back Sunday for more.  I have lots of pictures from 2012, but maybe I’ll post them another time.

This year I could only volunteer on Sunday since I ran the Madison Mini Saturday morning, but I did show up on Saturday afternoon to see a bunch of friends from UW Whitewater and catch up with them.  I also wanted to see all the changes in Dirty Girl, with a different marketing and production company.  Still a great event and well run, also bittersweet since none of the people I had met the year before were still with Dirty Girl.

All in all a great day!  Watched one girl get carried out of the mud at the bottom of the slide with a broken ankle, the guys told me it looked pretty bad, I didn’t want to get to close.  Hope she is ok!

Can’t wait to volunteer at Dirty Girl 2014!
