Enough with the Mud Already...

OK, it's probably just usually is...but I don't get the huge number of "adventure" races all over the place all the sudden. You know the ones: there's mud, there's climbing, there's falling, there's bare chested guys with tattoos drinking a beer with a race number stapled onto their chests.

Yeah, that kind of adventure race.

As an example, we've got the Warrior Dash coming up soon.

Now, for all I know, since I've never done one of these types of races, these adventure races really are the cat's pajamas, so to speak. Maybe if I did one, I'd never go back. I'd get a tattoo. I'd lose my shirts. I'd suddenly enjoy mud up my nose.

Or not.

But hey, to each their own, right? Right? Moving on...

Just an unbelievable number of races this weekend.
