I had the pleasure of participating in my first Muddy Buddy event this past weekend. My best friend, Daryl, and I hit the Georgia International Horse Park bright and early Saturday morning to take on this awesome challenge. The event consists of a mix of mountain biking and trail running. You can read more at their site, but it is important that I note that they don’t let you leave the event until you get…muddy! At the end of the course there was a big mud pit that Daryl and I had to traverse to get to the finish line; we did it in style and crossed the finish line with nothing but smiles. Unfortunately, being we were new to the race, we didn’t know they would take your picture around the corner from the finish line. We were so eager to get cleaned up and hit the beer garden that we missed taking advantage of that memorable moment. I guess that means they will be seeing us again next year! Until then.
