dirty damsels – 2022 mud run
(i’m the muddy one in the pink, or the 2nd from left if easier)
we ran, climbed, crawled, carried weight, went over, went under, stayed the course, used ropes, tripped,
slipped, offered hands, got stuck in mud, slid underwater, crab walked, balanced, fell down, finished as a team
all with my daughter, granddaughter, and group of friends
not afraid of the mud
certainly challenging, but so fun.
“we sit in the mud… and reach for the stars”
finding the mud was such a delight
starting out slow
checking how deep it was with a stick
walking, then running, then jumping, then splashing
only one ‘quicksand’ victim who we unstuck
boots dumped out after
filled with water dirt wood chips, rocks, sticks and unknown mushy things
a pair of mud-soaked socks
drying in the sun
and so much tired fun.
” mud is the most poetical thing in the world.”

meanwhile in tokyo…
“the only victory that counts is the one over yourself”
the heat is on and a candyland championship game is in play
my absolute favorite game and the competition is tough
there is no crying in candyland.
