Wanna Get Dirty? The Dirty Dash

On January 2, 2013 registrations for The Dirty Dash have opened.

And the registrations only cost $35! But they will only be $35 until January 30, 2013!
The Dirty Dash

I seriously want to do this race. I would love if you did this race with me! The Boise dash is on August 10, 2013. I already have it listed on my Slog list.

I have never done a mud run. I have done wet runs (Seattle Marathon) and very cold races (my last couple races). The only races I have done have just been trail and road races, so this is going to be interesting and slightly challenging.

There is a good chance I will have the same look on my face as girl on right. ;-)

There are lots of locations to choose from - Utah, Seattle, Oregon, Spokane, Billings, Boise, New Mexico, Colorado Springs, and Missoula.

Race registrations are only $35 until January 30th.

Have you ever done a mud run or obstacle course race or anything like it?

Do you want to do this race with me? What do I wear? What sort of things should I put into my workouts to prepare for some of the obstacles?


  1. Why is this not in California!?!? It looks like so much fun ^_^

    Maybe some swimming would help if your walking through mud? Not sure

    1. I noticed that there was no Cali when they are all over the west. Cali never gets neglected. So cray! Swimming is such a good idea!

  2. I really want to go the one in Billings (I live in Wyoming). My husband and I did the Survivor Mud Run last year in Colorado and had a BLAST! We want to do more this year.

    For clothing: wear snug fitting and light weight tank and shorts or capris. Shorts are ok but capris are good to protect your knees - they will get scraped! Your shoes will get really heavy, so you can get light weight trail shoes or you can tape your shoes. I used an old pair and just threw them away when I was done. You can wash your clothes, but you probably don't want to keep your shoes.

    A good training prep routine would be running and mixing in body-weight exercises. One of my routines was running @800 meters, then squats, 800 meters, than pushups, and so on.

    Good luck! Are you doing the race in Boise?

    1. Yea I will be doing the Boise race. Will you be doing the Billings Dirty Dahs? The training prep you suggested sounds like a good idea.

  3. I really want to do a mud run or some sort of crazy run this year, it sounds like so much fun!!

  4. I really want to do a mud run, but have not taken the plunge yet.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
