I’m back with another fun race opportunity!
Dirty Girl Mud Run contacted me a few weeks ago about being a blog ambassador and I said yes immediately!
I’ve been wanting to do a mud run for a while, but honestly the ones that are out there scared me. I’m not really the Spartan type.
Dirty Girl is the total opposite of all those other mud runs though.
About Dirty Girl Mud Run
Dirty Girl Mud Run is the largest women-only 5K mud and obstacle run series. Dirty Girl has inspired tens of thousands of women across the country to break out of their comfort zones by completing this empowering event. At Dirty Girl, it’s not about who finishes first. All obstacles are optional and all fitness levels are invited to participate. Dirty Girl proudly supports Bright Pink, the only national non-profit focusing on risk reduction and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
I just joined crossfit (I’ll have a whole separate post on that soon) and am definitely pushing myself physically and mentally. The hardest thing about things like obstacle runs and crossfit for me is getting out of my own head and past my FEAR.
I’m not the competitive type. I played team sports as a kid, but I liked hanging out on the sidelines with the team more than I liked actually playing in the game. In my adult life I’m finding that my best motivation for fitness is myself and that I do get a lot of enjoyment out of pushing myself.
I started couch to 5k again a few weeks ago so I’m planning to run as much as the mud run as possible.
As part of my ambassadorship I’ll be writing a couple posts for the Dirty Girl blog that I’ll share here as soon as they’re up. I also get a coupon code to share with you!
The run is on June 7 in Trenton, NJ. If you want to start your own team or go as an individual, you can use the code BLOGFRIEND for $10 off registration. If you’re interested in joining my team (TEAM FAT OR NOT! obvi haha) send me a message at jodeexi (at) gmail (dot) com and I can send you an invite with a code for 50% off registration.
Here’s some more about it:
Dirty Girl Mud Run challenges women to break out of their comfort zones and get dirty with an untimed, obstacles-optional course that welcomes women of all athletic abilities.Obstacles include the Utopian Tubes tunnel crawl, PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff) mud pit and Dirty Dancing giant slide.
As part of its mission to empower a healthy lifestyle, Dirty Girl proudly supports Bright Pink,the only national non-profit organization focusing on risk reduction and early detection of breast and ovarian cancers in young women. Since inception, Dirty Girl Mud Run has donated more than $475,000 to breast cancer charities and will donate at least $125,000 in 2014 to Bright Pink. At each 2014 event, 300 free registrations are reserved for cancer survivors.
I’m so pumped.
