Kristen thrives in a world of competition and new challenges that push personal limits. As a passionate multi-sport athlete she’s ready for her next challenge to get her back on the pavement. Kristen will train for the Dirty Girl Mud Run on the streets of Denver listening to the beats of Beyonce, Rihanna, and Lil John.
Wow what an event and experience during the Dirty Girl Mud Run in Colorado this year. Check this out…
MY REASON: I got a group of ladies together because honestly I was looking for something fun to do and thought it would be great to have some fun women to do it with!
THE RESULT: Who would have thought it would have brought back competitive memories of a National Soccer Championship with my soccer ladies or team camaraderie from new friends to get over ‘THE WALL‘ (shown below). It may look easy, but let me tell you when you are 5’3” events with some height in it aren’t ever easy.
~Although I kind of think it would make a pretty awesome Dirty Girl Mud Run Postcard~
THE MEMORIES: Let me start with what I can’t show you. If you can believe it we did end up with some photos I can’t post online (Thanks Mandy)!!! We also didn’t catch any photos of the variety of awesome team outfits that we saw, the mud throwing, or awesomely inappropriate mud hand prints on our team attire. BUT, I do know that when we stopped to ask two farmers on a deserted path for directions to the race their dog ran into my car and I do know that we completed ALL the course elements and I do know we were very muddy when we ended and that everyone had a great time!

If you know me…I’m ALL ABOUT creating memories. You have to live your life every day and this for me is just another example of that. You never know when obstacles might come your way, but wherever there is an up….there HAS to be a down! Who knew we had someone on our team was afraid of heights. But we did this as a team and finished as a team!
I’m glad to say, “See you next year in 2012…Bring it!”
