Go hard or go home!

This past weekend, we participated in the USMC mud run in Columbia, SC.  It was initially very frustrating, traffic was horrendous and we were worried we wouldn't make our start time.  Once we got there, things went smoothly and we were quickly taking off! We didn't do any specific training for the race outside of our BootCamp workouts.  There were 32 obstacles, lots of mud, lots of sprints, lots of thing to get over, under and climb. We were all thrilled with the idea of getting down and dirty with all the other athletes! One hour 27 minutes later we were finished, filthy, scratched, bruised and exhilarated! We really believe that the BootCamp workouts that we do helped us to get through the obstacles and runs without too much heavy breathing.  All in all, a successful day that we can't wait to do again! you can check out the obstacles at this link

today's workout!
