Mud, glorious mud

Sat 19th November 2011

So we got muddy. Very muddy. This photo was taken quite near the start of the race…it gets much worse!

Matt says...

You call that muddy?!

…get set, GO! Here we are at the start line waiting for the gun to go off. Ooh the excitement is building!

Matt

Matt says...

There was an amazing atmosphere, everyone was friendly and ready to go. Bring on the mud!

 
Claire

Claire says...

We saw so many awesome fancy dress costumes, it was a shame we didn’t dress up!  Saying that I was hot enough running in 30 degree heat as it was!

 

Go team!

Here are all the Stampede runners. We all look remarkably clean and fresh-faced, little did we know the things that were in store for us!

Matt

Matt says...

Look at us all, elite athletes! Like a coiled spring, or maybe that should be  a slinky.

Valley Stampede

Sat 19th November 2011

Today was D-day – time for Valley Stampede, a 5K race through Glenworth Valley over 18 obstacles and ridiculous mud.

Matt

Matt says...

Okay, so I’ve done about zero training for this 5K run. How hard can it be?! I sit at a desk all day, that must count for something!

 
Claire

Claire says...

We really weren’t prepared at all for this. Still, we were ready to limber up!

 

The final Cockatoo

Tue 15th November 2011

Oh come on then, one more won’t make any difference…

Matt

Matt says...

All I’m thinking to myself in this photo is “please don’t poo on me!” :)

 
Claire

Claire says...

Can I just say that by this point I was having trouble keeping the camera still from laughing so much!
