How Sweet it is to be a part of a TEAM
Sunday's Mud Run was fantastic.
Here I was lucky enough to have been invited to be amongst some of the most bad-ass women currently at TCFA--Donna, Kellie, Corlyn and Rose.
These ladies are always at or near the top of the heap at 6am. Sunday put us to an excellent test.
We opted for a slow and steady pace out of the gate, and we kept that up the entire race. We pushed when we needed to (especially up the hills), and we rested when the going got rough.
Some women were faster than others. Some were slower. It didn't matter.
What mattered is that we stayed together as a team and finished as one too.
Running in boots and utility pants is a great challenge, as when wet, they add about 8 additional pounds of weight.
We took on the challenge and flew, landing ourselves a first place medal for our efforts.
Very well done, Team Red 6 Militia! It was great racing with you!
