Desperately Seeking Shower

Last month, we had the extreme pleasure of participating in the Irvine Mud Run, a 3.5 mile run with all kinds of obstacles and mud pits!
Maddox is showing off the boo boo he got on his knee before the race. His pitiful face would suggest a broken limb or an amputated appendage, but it was really just a microscopic scratch.

I know Jeff looks fairly clean here, but his heat went well before mine, and he finished the race about half an hour before I did, so the mud was dried and caked on him. He made sure to dive into the mud pit, so he was covered from head to toe.
The muddy buddies... Alicia, Jenny, Michelle and Amanda Robinson. Isaiah Leslie, Jeff and Mad.
After the race, there was a kids' mud run! Parents were allowed to run with their kiddos if they were too little to run on their own, so Jeff volunteered to go into the pit again. Here they are warming up at the starting line.
Daddy and Maddox off and racing...

...into the human car wash...
...and straight into the mud pit...

I think it's a new annual tradition!

I love Mad's warm up picture! It looks like you all had a blast.

L.O.V.E. the last photo of Jeff and Mad--totally frame-worthy if you ask me! :)
