|Morning preparations for the the BIG DAY at the hotel. I ended up not using the hydration pack or the Tailwind. |
Before we set out for the warm-up zone to hang with Coach T. Mud, we caught up with Melissa from Tough Mudder Headquarters (TMHQ) for some live streaming. Catch me and Rebecca from 2:52-8:24
After our live streaming we headed over to Coach T. Mud's warm up zone, where he energetically took us through some dynamic stretches and movements including butt kicks, arm circles, his signature HIP GYRATIONS, for, um flexibility.
And then we moved on to the start area, ever so close to dying (or so I thought).
Well, that escalated quickly, like LITERALLY.

|All clean and nice-smelling beforehand|
I'm okay. I'm okay!
Then Rebecca and I were off for real.
The weather was perfect--the day was sunny and stunning. This property, in the midst of one of the more beautiful areas in Fulton County, was well maintained and groomed, with just the right amount of horse-farm whimsy to keep us on our toes. The trails were pristine, well-trodden, and surrounded by trees in the throes of mid-spring renaissance. We ran and hiked up hills for about a mile until we reached our first official obstacle.
