Tough Mudder

 I'm baaaaack! Did you miss me?!? Probably not, everyone's so busy these days...I don't know if blogs are that popular anymore, but I knew I needed to update what's been going on around here. And I know in my last post, I said I was going private, which I am someday, but have decided to wait a while....I received so many thoughtful comments from so many sweet people that have followed our story, we can hold off for a bit. :)

Anyway, life is good. Crazy. Fun. Busy. Wonderful. Did I say Busy? That word alone explains where I've been the past 5 months. But, I'm going to make a comeback. just wait and see! :)

So, here's what's been happening in January. Boy oh boy, I have a lot of catch up to do! Justin entered the tough mudder race this month. He trained long and hard for a couple months beforehand. It was 12.5 miles of running and in between each half mile was a challenge. 27 obstacles in total. Whether it was climbing huge mountains of mud, hauling blocks of wood over their shoulders or jumping into pools of muddy water, he was up for the challenge. It looked really grueling and I admired him for doing this. He did a great job! Go babe!

Justin and company! His 2 brothers & bros in law did it with him. Crazy people! (Joe, Scott, T.J, my man, Ryan, Tyson, Kelly, forgot this guys's been 5 months ok?) 

Lots of mud in the eyes. Ouch!

Every time I saw him he was smiling. 

They crawled underneath electrical wire that gave off painful shocks. 

 They climbed this half pipe that was at least 50 feet tall. It was great to see all the commradre of all the participants. Everyone helped each other out. 

Giving him a kiss for good luck!

 This obstacle was the monkey bars gone crazy! 

The last obstacle was the electrical shock therapy. It was no joke. Each wire had a full charge and each charge would bring a big guy to his knees! Justin wanted to finish by going "all out" and running through these full speed. I'm married to a crazy man...but still love the guy.

Go babe go!

Like I said, a crazy man! 

He finished and received the coveted "Tough Mudder" headband. Way to go babe! You are one Hot Mudder!
