Wednesday night muddy run

3 Jun

Last night kicked off my first run of the Clark County Running Club Wednesday night 3 mile summer series runs. 

We had rain all day long up until a few hours before the run.  Rain + dirt =one muddy path.  Everyone’s legs and shoes were splattered and covered in mud.  Mine actually aren’t as bad as others.

I made sure to wear my old running shoes just for this reason.

It was a fun run switching from muddy ups and downs to grass and pavement.  This run really had it all.  I annihilated on the uphill.  When I run from my house there’s no way to get away from hills so I’ve learned to love them.  My mom’s mantra I use now too of “I love hills!” probably helps too.  It seems that if you tell yourself you like them they turn out to be not so bad.

I ran the course in 26 min 14 sec.  Great time for me! 

My mom made it to the first run last week and shaved 2 whole minutes off of her time (it must be because I was there :))

When I got home I was starved for dinner and had a couple slices of my french sorrel, basil and mushroom quiche I’d defrosted and baked yesterday.  Mmmm it was so good and easy.

Any fun muddy run’s you’ve done lately?

I’m off to go swim… something I haven’t done in maybe a month??  Here’s to hoping I didn’t forget how 🙂

    so fun! I love rainy or muddy runs! And I have a pair of shoes I use just for those type of runs. Hope the swim went well.

    Love mud runs!! I kind make my own by running along the bridal trail in Central Park when it’s raining 😉 Have fun on your swim – I totally need to start swimming again too… so great for your whole body!

    Ruing + Hills is an oxymoron to me!! But I like your idea of repeating that “you love hills”, or your moms idea….I bet that does work! I will say that when it comes to running I would much rather run somewhere dirty and off the beaten path, rather than a simple road. I get so bored!

    And of course I did NOT meant to write “Ruing”. I guess my fingers don’t like the letter “n”. haha

    Love your muddy legs! Sounds like a fun run! I haven’t run for a while as my ankle is acting up again (and sadly I don’t run in mud or when it’s wet; it’s just to easy to injure myself).

    A swim sounds nice…
