2009 Dominion Riverrock Mud Run 5k – Race Report

I’ve run a few races in the mud, and this was no different. A few small obstacle courses. A quick run into the James, waist deep. And a short, thick, sludgy mud pit at the end. I love running through obstacles, but this might be my last mud pit for a while.

2009 Muddy Buddy Richmond – Race Report

This is just an awesome race at Pocahontas State Park. The obstacles are top-notch. The mud pit is long, and the spectators get on you if you’re not face down in it. The team names are hilarious… and the costumes even better. I even witnessed a proposal this year.

2009 Smithfield Sprint Triathlon – Race Report

This was my first triathlon… ever. I started with an easy one, where the swim was only 300m, and took place in an indoor pool. It was fantastic weather, and a beautiful, rural location. A much different experience from the standard road running race.
