I'm starting to feel like I'm the only runner out there who hasn't done a Dirty Dash/Mud Run or a Color Run. And I feel like I may be banned from the running community for admitting that I have no desire to run either type of race.
Here's my why.
As far as crawling through mud and jumping over and around obstacles...I could do it. But I don't really love being covered in mud. And more importantly, I worry about getting injured. Twisting an ankle. Tweaking a knee. Breaking my tailbone. Just not worth the risk in my book. It would mean no running. Have I mentioned I love running?
Then there's getting chalk or whatever it is thrown at me while I run. In general, I don't like having things thrown at me. I don't think I'd love being covered in it either. While I'm sweating. Ewww. And I typically prefer fresh air while running.
That's just my two cents on this lovely Monday afternoon.
