Morning Meanderings…. Book Lovers In The Mud!


Last weekend I went with fellow Bookie and awesome friend Amy to the Muckfest in Wisconsin.  This is an annual mud run to raise money for MS… my 3rd time doing this one, her second.  We brought with us two rookies…. Jennifer and Jody who did MARVELOUS!

For this weeks Saturday Snapshot I thought I would bring you some of our pictures from that muddy event.

I did post this picture earlier this week – this is the picture we took at the check in. Look how clean we are!

    • They really do a great job – there were 20 obstacles in this 5k course, I did not get pics of them all. I have done several mud runs and not all are created equal 🙂 This is a great course!

  1. Wow what an experience that must have been. And for a good cause too. Thanks for sharing these fun photos.

  2. Looks so fun! My son and DIL do any kind of run they can find in our area. His favorite so far is the Tough Mudder.

    • They are so fun and its exercise 🙂 The Tough Mudder scares me a bit – is that the one with the electric wires? I am working my way up to that one 😉

  3. Great job all of you. It looks as though you had a great time, if the smiles are any indication. Oh to be ??(many) years younger!

  4. Great photos, and it looks like y’all had a ton of fun!

  5. What a fun event! I have a number of friends who do these races and they all love them!

  6. You’re such a physically active person, Sheila! I’m sure it’s what helps with the stamina 🙂 Those nets remind me of Sesame Place! I miss going, but my son outgrew it about 18 years ago, so have to wait for the grandkids to come along 🙂 Of course, my fibro made climbing difficult (though one year it wasn’t too bad!), but I loved those nets! Great stuff, Sheila 🙂

    • I guess they are like boot camp nets – the one where we are on top is awesome as while we are crawling over the top people are going through it underneath…. its like a bunch of ants! 😀

  7. So awesome that you did this. Looks like a lot of fun! I’m not sure I’d fare so well. I am not that athletic!
