Why is Mud Girl a magic experience?
Mud Girl is a magic experience because while enjoying the two-hour competition you become a different person. This event has been designed for women: it involves walking, running, and getting over different challenges. These obstacles include climbing walls, barbed wire challenges, low crawling and rope climbing (usually over water cargo nets, slides, and mud pits, among others). Obviously everything involves going through mud… a lot of sticky mud! The race is a little less than 5 km long and has more than 17 obstacles that are fun and feasible for everyone.
Facing and fighting your fears:
Mud Girl is a magic experience because you realize what you are capable of doing and what kind of “wood” you are. The real challenge is against yourself! This run has a before and an after. A before with a lot of fears and no mud. An after with a lot of mud and less fear. If you manage to overcome the fear of heights, you win. I remember the first test: it involved parallel bars that changed heights. One of my friends told me: “if you cannot do it, it’s not a problem, just walk”. Others said: “if you want to do it, we are here to help you”. At the end of the day, it’s your decision… Mud run is an invitation to be strong, and show yourself that you can at least try.
Finally, I dared… and I succeeded! When I saw the second height challenge, my fear disappeared. I was going through it cautiously, and everything was easier for me. Mud Girl is a magic experience because – in a very short time – you are able to reinforce your friendships, promote teamwork, enjoy your time, and support the fight against breast cancer. Moreover, the best thing about this great activity is that you are able to test your body and your mental limits. Nobody pushes you. Everybody has its own pace and you can always feel the support of the team. The organizers understand the importance of rewarding your effort and, therefore, each participant carries a medal home. It is an unforgettable experience!
