Running Bucket List

Most runners have some sort of Bucket List of Runs, usually starting with Boston, that they strive to race.

The R's is no different, and I've got an odd one on my list that's coming up right here: the Samish Bay Bivalve Bash Low Tide Mud Run! Yeah, that's a long name, but it's a short race - 250 yards!

See the Low Tide Mud Run is run through mud. Not just any mud, but soul-sucking, knee deep, spirit shattering, Samish Bay mud. Most people that run it duct tape their shoes on!

And that, my friends, is serious mud.

I've had people I know run this one and say it's the hardest race they've ever done. Still haven't made it and I won't this year year for sure.

Let's race!
