Muddy Buddy 2009

Filed under: Mom and Dad — dave9169 @ 8:00 pm

Early this year, Cathy agreed to participate in the Muddy Buddy 2009 race in San Dimas.  The plan was to train for a few months and then join her friend Alicea to do this race. Well, a week before the scheduled race, Alicea broke her elbow in a cycling accident, leaving Cathy without a partner.

Luckily, I was able to join her in this race that consists of biking, running, obstacle courses, and crawling through a mud pit to get to the finish line. The race was billed as being okay for beginners but the mountain bike descents were very steep, so steep that Cathy fell down early on in the race and hurt her knee. However, in the end, she got through the race, we both had fun, and are contemplating doing this event again next year in a different city. We’ll see how it goes. For now, we’re just happy we were able to do this together.
