Here's my team, post mud-pit #1, big grins, only half wet. We are me, CAD guy (beside me), Candy Bar (behind me), and Chivalrous, next to her.
The "football post" obstacle, as I call it, was INSANELY covered in mud, and thus extremely slippery... note here that I am also completely covered in mud.
The net obstacle was a little swarmed by the mobs of mud people, ugh - too slow moving!!! Chivlarous is having more luck beside me, having climbed over behind a less nervous person.
This is the main way that we get covered in mud... These trenches under a wooden "bridge" have to be "swum" through on your belly, eyes closed, breath held - clearly blind!!!
The ropes!!! Chivalrous in the foreground, CAD just getting on behind him, and me in the background.
The 10 foot wall. In total there were 4 7 foot walls, 1 10 footer, and 2 or 3 6 footers. I hate this one. It comes right after the ropes... when your arms are less "arm-like" and more "jello-like".
Mud hills are the majority of obstacles. Many are low enough to run over, especially if you can get a foot-hold in the mud. Many more you have to crawl over either because there's rope across them to wiggle under, or because they're so slippery you just can't stand up. In this case, it's a mud cliff that you have to use the ropes to get up. I kinda like this one a lot.
After swim-trudging through the final big mud trench we reach the glory hill that marks the finish line! We definitely look less energetic than the first photo!
