And I Know What You Came Here To Do, Now Bust It Open Let Me See You Get Muddy

The weekend before this past one I completed 22+ miles at Central Florida. The course was over the normal ten miles and even though TMHQ said it was two laps, it wasn't really. The course just had a lot of cross over points and it was probably easier to just call it two laps.

I Wish that I Could Be Like the Muddy Kids, ‘Cause All the Muddy Kids, They Seem to Fit In

It’s a Quarter After One, I’m All Muddy and I Need You Now

Ten weeks. That's two handfuls of weeks y'all. Earlier this week I was reading a post where the author was talking about how emotional he got when he asked his family/friends to be a part of his pit crew for WTM. It should be said that I have some of the best friends in the … Continue reading It’s a Quarter After One, I’m All Muddy and I Need You Now
