I know you’re all dying to know how we got home with all that mud on us. First, we were smart and brought a towel, a garbage bag and a change of clothes (and shoes). For all you wanna-be warriors, these are must-have items! At our race, there was also a “Warrior Wash” to get cleaned up. This is what the wash looked like:
See you can even see the color of my shirt again! I’m holding my socks…there was some weird sh*t in my shoes, btw. After getting practically naked in the brown pond, I went to a place I vowed to NEVER visit…unless I was going to sh*t my pants in public.
One thing about this race was that there were port-a-potties everywhere! I really refuse to use them, but they actually were very helpful and saved a lot of people from having to see my naked (and ginormous) ass running around the Dash.
And there was even a hook where I could hang the garbage bag I threw all my disgusting stuff in. Yes, I still have mud on my face, but Lindsey had wipes in her car that we used to get the spots we missed in the brown pool.
On our way out, we saw some guys that ran in the 9:00 am wave and they managed to clean up pretty well, too.
On our way home we stopped at two places. First up, the gas station. We saw one of my favorite car decals ever!
And then we stopped to recharge and refuel:
Oh and for those of you who asked about my clothes, they were actually fine after I washed them. If you’re wondering what a shirt and number look like after you’ve thrown them in the washer, here you go:
That’s right I washed the shirt with the number still attached. That’s what happens when you dump your clothes from the garbage bag into the washer. Good news…they both turned out clean! And my poor shoes? I’m pretty sure you remember what they looked like, but if you didn’t:
Go sign up for a race, it was really so much fun. I recommend wearing long pants and somewhat form-fitting clothes. Less stuff dragging the better…have fun!!
