Marine Mud Run

Yay! I found some pictures of the Marine Mud Run! Thanks to all those who took these pictures, because not a single one is mine. :)

Group of Ladies before we started

My team with our war faces on. Apparently, I don't know how to make a war face

Our team with our happy faces

My awesome friend Cari. The kids were all yelling "JUMP, JUMP, JUMP!" And she did. I love this picture!

and in go the feet...

and the splash!

I know this picture is horrible (or maybe it's really awesome?), but did I get mud in my mouth? No sir!!

Through the first mud pit.

and up the first hill where there was a marine spraying a fire hose in our faces.

Enter here: video of mud run and obstacles. I am only in the very beginning of the video, but it's fun to see all the obstacles.

Jessica and me sprinting to the finish

We rocked it!

Oh, and by the way, Jerry did it too. But this is the only picture I found of him. Well sorta. Jerry and his team are behind these two unknown guys. You can see the top of Jerry's mud covered head (yes, he completely submerged himself in the mud for some reason) above the boy's head on the right.
I cannot wait until next year. I seriously can't stop thinking about it and how much fun I had.

ideas, mud, and moving

I think of new and wonderfully awesome ideas for blog posts all the time. If I actually wrote and posted all of these amazing idea's I think this blog could be pretty awesome. But finding the 10 minutes to sit down at the computer, and remembering the idea simultaneously hardly ever happens. And when it does, my poor writing skills always leave me disappointed. So...I just wanted to let y'all know that your missing out on some great stuff. Maybe sometime I'll actually start getting down all the stuff I want to. Until then...This is all you get. Sorry.

Today I wish I could write an amazing post about the totally awesome Marine Mud Run Jerry and I did yesterday. But, we didn't have the camera (because we were both running through the mud) I'm still hoping that some people we know who took pictures will post them, but I know that the pictures in my mind of how I remember it don't exist. It's really too bad.

Here is a picture of a bunch of us ladies from my ward before we started. There were two more teams of women from my ward, another team of friends, and Jerry had a team too. So, needless to say "everyone is doing it" :) Hopefully I'll get more pictures soon :)

On another note...We're MOVING! No, not back to Utah:( We are literally going to be "Crossing Georgia" (wow, now the blog name is so appropriate, who saw that coming, right? I didn't) and moving to Columbus, GA which is on the western border of Georgia. I am really really bummed about leaving all of my amazing friends here, but Jerry will be going from a job that he REALLY hates to a job that will finally use all this Army training he's been going through for the last 6 years. We are pretty sure that Jerry is going to love his new job (he better, right? No pressure Jer) The other good thing is that Jerry's brother lives there so we'll get to spend lot's and lots of time with them, which is awesome, because we love them. And we like them too. ;)
