Pink and Tink made me some inspirational signs before I left at 7:00 am that morning.
"I love you. Don't get it muddy."
I was so covered in mud, dirt and God knows what that I was blowing mud out of my nose and digging it out of my ears with a Q-Tip. Did I mention this was my idea of fun?
Notice fellow Mud Run teammates, that I am NOT blogging about the tiny butterfly in the mud. I tried real hard to think of something, but just couldn't.
After a morning doing this in the hot sun followed by 2 beers, then an afternoon in the sun at the pool with the kids followed by 2 MORE beers on a friend's deck in the evening, I am still completely exhausted today. And all kinds of sore. Muscles I never knew I had are screaming at me right now. They are saying "Woman, what the *bleep* were you thinking!!"
And I told them to shut their pie hold because I'd do it again! I may be a 40-something Momma of 4, but I can still rock this Mud Run! *whimper*
So today I am flat out physically exhausted. I ate a bunch of oreos around 4:00 and then tacos and ice cream for dinner and that seemed to offer some remedy. When in doubt, consume junk food.
It was a busy day, but I couldn't complain when it started out with Rella's dance class. They did a sneak performance of their upcoming recital... which she won't be able to do on stage due to our vacation. So this was "it" for me.
Man, I LOVE this kid.
