Over the weekend Dave, the kids, and I all went up to Michigan to run the SwampFoot 4 Mile with my sister and her kids. It was a big muddy mess and so much fun! The adults ran the 4 miles while Kora, Logan, and their cousins all ran the one mile kids run. We had lots of family there to cheer us on, take pictures, and laugh at us! Here’s some of our favorite photos.
It was lots of fun and everyone had a great time. My sister and I were incredibly proud of ourselves because we made it across the longest set of monkey bars I have ever seen! There were probably 35-40 rungs! It was tough but we were determined and we made it. We also weren’t that muddy yet since it was early in the course so the threat of falling into the water was a great motivator!
The kids all had a blast and have all been talking about doing it again sometime. They all mentioned that they liked it so much that they wished that the kids run was longer or that they had an option for a longer run.
The SwampFoot 4Mile mud run is one we will definitely be putting in our calendars for next year and we had so much fun we are hoping to find a few more before it gets too chilly.
