Clean and smiling but not for long :)
Off we headed for Stanford Hall near Lutterworth to do something called the Wolf Run
10K run with obstacles. Sounds interesting, intriguing and definitely challenging.
What fun!! the obstacles were ploughing through thick mud, climbing walls built of round poles so you cannot get a grip, swimming through smelly water, climbing a very high cargo net and lots more.
There were 4,000 crazy people who did this "run" over the week end. We were set off in large groups so lots of people to have a giggle with which is what we did, giggle!!. sometimes having to pull each other out of the deep mud or helping each other up a slippery, muddy bank. It isn't a race so everyone finished and what a sense of achievement you feel at the end of it.
I'm not really a runner and am no spring chicken but I was shocked at my ability to run 6.2 miles but the atmosphere carries you along and you slip into the disguising water or slimy mud with no hesitation.
We cannot wait to do another :)
Anyone joining us?
All for charity too
