Go Dirty Girl

Back in November, I did something that I hadn’t done before – completed a mud run. Lucky for me, the Dirty Girl Mud Run contacted The Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers, so I get another chance to get dirty!!!

Dirty Girl Mud Run is for women of all ages and abilities. After completing the run a couple of months ago, I can definitely vouch for this. You do not have to be a serious runner or in crazy shape to complete these events – really! You just have to be willing to go out and have a great time with your girlfriends – and get dirty of course!

There are over 40 Dirty Girl Mud Runs all across the country! They sure have their work cut out for them! Bringing mud to that many cities seems intense! Dirty Girl follows suit by keeping the run completely fun – there are no timing chips or even a clock! You cross the start and finish line simply to complete the course at whatever pace you feel like. I can’t wait to do this run with my most favorite ladies again! I hadn’t laughed so much in a long time when we completed our last mud run. I think this time we are going to have to dress up though. Last time, we were totally bummed that we hadn’t planned ahead better. We have plenty of time to think about our costumes, as the run isn’t until February 9th here in Tampa.

Not in the Tampa area? Be sure to check out Jacksonville or Miami, or one of their other locations across the country! If you are looking to sign up, use the code FLBLOGGUEST to get 20% off your entry. AND, if you sign up before January 9th, you get $10 off as well! Now is the time to do it! Anyone who registers for the Miami, Jacksonville or Tampa Dirty Girl Mud Run by 11:59 PM on Dec. 24th will automatically be entered to win a gym membership of her choice valued up to $500. So sign up before Monday ;)

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with your families and get some time to relax! I plan to unplug for the weekend and really soak up my family time. Hope you can do the same!

Disclosure: I’m a Dirty Girl Ambassador, selected because of my general awesome nature and ability to inspire. In return for spreading the word, my Dirty Girl Mud Run is comp’d, but all opinions are my own.

    Awesome Mary! I’m a bit bummed that this isn’t in the cards for me. RnR is the next morning and it’s my A-race, so I’m gonna have to pass to make sure I’m ready for the half!
