So needless to say I think it's an awesome experience. It's just a truly amazing experience. (I think Amy would definitely agree.) Knowing you I know you'd kick butt and enjoy it. Its less of a race and more of an adventure. The obstacles are so much fun and how else will you get the excuse as an adult to roll in mud? I have never walked away from a race with such a high, it was a rush when I crossed the finish. I should also mention they hand you a free beer as soon as you are over the finish line. I also find it to be extremely well run, up there with Disney races. They have an after party, the water stops are great they have water and bananas, lots of nice people working and running. Definitely something worth doing at least once.


That being said right now I'm registered to run with a girl from my bootcamp and if you're looking to run with people we'd love to have you on our team. We did Spartan together and it took me all of two seconds to convince her to do Tough Mudder.

So whats keeping you from registering?

Yes, Amy gave me a very detailed race report and it is now on my bucket list. It is a Must Do race for me. And thanks for including me on your team!

Only thing holding me back, honestly, is that I am not in shape for it. I know I *can* be by June, but I'd like to wait a bit and get some training under my belt first.

And yes, I am running the Princess next week. I have done, get this, a total of SEVEN training runs. Yup. That's it. I did one 7.5 miler and ten days ago I did a full 13.1. Other than that, I have done a few 3s and 4s. NOT IN SHAPE. Thankfully, the Princess is so generous. I did my 13.1 at an even 13 minutes per mile pace, which I am pleased with considering, again, SEVEN training runs! Plus, I am not running for pace. Don't care about it at all--just running with Team Goddess. and we are going to conga-line across the Finish. Or other such silliness!

Without going into detail, it has been a HORRIBLE 6 months, so I got derailed. And even when I tried to keep up with it, I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot and that sidelined me for 12 weeks. So I am nowhere near ready for anything other than a mild-mannered Disney race. But of course, I will be!

So let me share that I don't think half training as mudder training are the same. I didn't and won't run the distances for mudder that I would for a half. They say they're about 10 or so miles but it is not continuous and there's going to be some you won't run. They seem to make sure there are a few sections in the New England races where you're going up such a steep slope you are literally almost crawling. I wish I had pictures I'm not kidding about crawling. I'd say the longest distance I ran was a mile and a half. I guess what I'm getting at is running wise you are probably ready already. The other component is being able to crawl, climb, generally just be active.

I understand your worry. I was physically ready for it when I signed up but then I hurt my ankle. I got cleared to rude a bike with no resistance just two months before I was supposed to run it. I was worried I'd never be ready in time and I had a few moments where I was very down about it. But being registered was enough motivation to keep me working after my injury. I am positive I wasn't in my best condition but I was in the best condition I could be in given I had only two months to workout. I also saw when I got there how diverse the people who run mudder are. There are hard core athletes and then people who would be just escaping the sweepers at a Disney race. It's all ends of the spectrum and I definitely passed people and was passed buts more about challenging yourself and time isn't kept.

Obviously I think you should do it. For Christmas Brian bought me all the official pictures so I'll have to post them on Facebook soon.

WT H?

I asked for the two thousandth time for a little wedding info and you do this! GRRR.

I LOVE a race but.....

So I'll make it easier Megan. I don't want to know everything about it.

Just want to know:

1) Did Katie LOVE her choice (in general - Empress Lily I mean/ going to Disney/their service (whoops Fulton's)?

2) Did she do okay with the focused attention because it was only your family?

3) Did she have any regrets about not having a local wedding or having more loved ones there?

Those are my curiosities.

Yes, we are all waiting for goat names! 7 sets of twins and counting! Yet not one name have we heard!

Meg--thanks for typing all of that out. And for prioritizing me over lisa! I know, I'm delightful. Right, Lisa?

Seriously though, I would love to do the Tough Mudder. The mileage doesn't scare me and the obstacles don't scare me. It's the HILLS. The mofo hills!

When Lisa starts sending me menacing emails I'll just forward them to you to deal with.

There are hills, no denying that. I've run some serious hills up in Vermont but when I did Mudder I didn't run the hills. Some of them were muddy and you were getting hosed down, some were too steep other then to crawl up so it's a little different. And it makes for some awesome views.

4 more sleeps! And then Team Goddess arrives! EPIC! I've decided that will be my word for the week-end. Everyone will find it delightful, I'm sure!

Lisa...you still haven't told me your arrival time.

I just thought I'd check in, because for the past half an hour I've been having a pity party for one and I'm starting to annoy myself.

E - Edward will stay there forever!!

Can't wait to hear all about the Princess / Team Goddess rocking their way round Disney / Boozerama!!

I like a good pity party. Did you have snacks? Snacks are key. I like to have a nice snack and beverage assortment. Really. I mean, we all have to feel sorry for ourselves sometimes. Do it in style, I say.


So, did we mention we are dressing up as fairies? Because we are easily persuaded.

No. Not because we are easily persuaded. Because we were hammered when we made that particular decision!

Liz - Peanut Butter Ice Cream. I did it in style, I'm over it now and back on my game!

I did NOT know about the fairies until I saw it on FB - I can't tell you how happy this makes me! I cannot wait for pictures - tag fast!
