So when we first got there, there was a huge line of shower like spcikets that people would use to clean up. When we finished...those spickets were gone. What the heck!? How were we going to drive home covered in mud?? We asked where the water was and someone pointed to a far away truck leaving to go pick up more water. We were not sure how long it would take so we decided to just sit on towels and suffer the 45 minutes home, caked in mud. As we headed back to the car, we saw the truck return so we rushed back to the wash off area to get cleaned up. Now we thought they would be setting up the showers again but oh were we wrong. The water truck had two huge power nozzles on each side and he just let the water spray out over tons of filthy bodies. It was sooo cold and I opted out getting completely clean because I am the biggest wimp and just don't do cold very well. It was a funny site though. Water shooting out over dancing bodies (and only dancing to keep warm). I bucked up a little and went back in the crowd but didn't last long. At one point it was hitting me directly in the face. Scott was smart and took his shirt off and was using it as a wash cloth. So, he went home fairly clean while I was pretty gross still.
I would love to keep doing stuff like this (hint hint, Scott). I loved running with him because most of it, we just chatted (not during the crazy hill parts). Anyway, there should be more pictures on the official website so I am excited to see them. I would totally recommend the mudrun to anyone that is interested. We are both totally sore and tired but worth it! Oh and my favorite part of the last couple of pictures is my awesome mud flavor savor I grew while running the course!
