I haven't had a MNO in forever. Literally. Forever. Tonight that all changed! I was invited to take a sneak peek of the Pretty Muddy race course in Dade City, FL along with 5 other Tampa bloggers, all women, and I had 1/2 a slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake. I am living life on the wild side.
I met up with Denise of RunDMT and we drove out together. Turns out she lives only a few miles from me, and we have lots of other things in common too. She's a pretty cool chick. And tomorrow she will do her first mud run ;) I promised her that she will LOVE it.
I am a huge fan of the "keep calm" manta, so this was only fitting.
Having a few mud runs under my belt, I can tell you that THIS mud run really looks like a RUN! The course is much wider, and the obstacles appear to have more distance between them. But I can run, so it's really not a problem. I just really like obstacles. And mud. Makes me feel like a kid.
This is the finish pit.
No diving into the mud pit. Someone better hold me back
At dinner I split a piece of HOMEMADE pumpkin cheesecake. It was GOOD. I have food rules when it comes to desserts. I won't eat anything dessert-y if I can go up to my local Publix/Target and buy it. It needs to be homemade and it needs to be unique. This dessert fit the bill perfectly. I did not have the whipped cream because it did not fit into my food rules And thinking back, my last dessert was Key Lime Pie homemade by the historic Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City in JULY. So over 4 months ago. Talk about moderation.
I did not carb load. It's only a 5k LOL.
