So yeah
I was slacking on the blog, and I didn't go on Monday. I had a CRAZY Allergic reaction to an eye cream. I have never had any reaction to anything before. This crap made me look like I was in a boxing match and I lost big time! Thankfully the swelling to my eyes went away in just over 24 hours. How Ironic is this?! The eye cream was called "EYE NEVER". No joke that was the name! See what we women do to try to stay and maintain looking young. So I put this cream on in the morning and that night it started with someminor swelling, by morning I had to tilt my head backward just to see forward. My eyes were nearly swollen shut. Damn EYE NEVER! Never again!!! Was out the entire day Monday loaded on Benadryl... I never slep so much. Much needed anyway. 

SO....back to WODing, yesterday and today. It's going to be a double entry tonight! :D Slacking..

The Challenge

Per their web site:

What should our racers expect on the day?

• 5k or 10k run on flat & mountain bike trails (with random water canons).
• Monkey bars over a mud pit or even quicksand (we have the recipe).
• Rope climb over a river (or swim across it).
• A .25 mile swim across the lake or forfeit and walk around but have to carry a car tire.
• Rope challenges (cargo nets etc.)
• Logic puzzles / brain teasers.
• Quicksand pit (no seriously we have the recipe).
• Semi submerged tunnel crawl (fear of confined spaces / drowning)
• Ice plunge (basically a pit filled with ice and water).
• Beat the crap out of a punch bag. (timed)
• Finish line is a barbed wire mud pit crawl and a final climb up to a leap of faith into the lake.

Think that’s it?
To get to the finish line there is one final challenge – time to see who is TRULY fearless.
And what is this BIG surprise challenge?
Sorry, but that has to stay a secret until race day as we don’t want to risk people freaking out prior to the race, just trust us, NO-ONE has done anything like this before at one of these events.
It’s honestly going to blow peoples minds.
Was told they just added axe throwing!! LOL

Something for the kiddies:
We will also have some mini mud runs for the kids.
A 100 / 200 meter mini obstacle course with mud pit for the 4 – 8 year olds
A full mile version for the 9 – 13 year old group. Tons of smaller but still fun obstacles and of course, tons of mud.
