Against my better judgement I signed up for Mudderella which, for those of you who don’t know is an obstacle course made just for women. For a few days I was calling it mortadella which confused everyone as they thought I was having a day out with an Italian sausage. My lovely friends, (whom I will obviously hate on the day) Mrs Enthusiastic and Mrs Freaking Out, (she just realized how little time we have left to start training) hounded me relentlessly until I signed on the dotted line.
Anyway, the course has loads and loads of mud and I 100% cannot stand having mud on any part of me. Mud in my fingernails sends me totally stupid so I am planning on wearing gloves to my elbows, goggles and a shower cap because if mud is dripping down my back, I will no doubt be arrested due to my unseemly behavior. I have seen photos of women sliding down an enormous slide into a pool of mud so I will also bring my snorkel but have decided to leave the flippers at home because that would be just plain weird, don’t you think? I do dream of doing Tough Mudder one day but only in my nightmares.
