To say Kent loved the race is an understatement. Swimming through huge troughs of icy mud, on a slip n slide nicknamed the electric eel (because it's rigged with live electric wires), and through terribly scary and panic inducing underground water filled narrow tunnels is his kind of event. The mud sounds awesome- the running would be fun (it's almost 13 miles)- even some of the water looked exciting. But the live wires and Ice water in already frigid temps?! count me out. I would love the race but I really think I might have to pass on the electrocution thing.
Here's Kent getting ready for the underground tunnels. I could totally handle these. I think.
I'm totally jealous of the mud part! Kent said some people came out of it missing shoes. He duct taped his to his ankles. He's the one dead center with the muddy bum.
And here he goes under the barbed wire. I would most certainly have ripped my shirt or flesh on those wires. He's bottom far left.
post race. pretty stinking muddy. and the past three days new bruises have been appearing ALL over his body.
