One of Rebecca's goals this year is to do a Mud Run or other 5k obstacle course. The one she's really pushing me to do with her is the Hero Rush in Concord this October. As a warmup, she signed up for a "Rugged Mudder Boot Camp" (put on by a friend of ours through the High Point YMCA) that really pushed her limits. There were only 6 obstacles but she had to carry that wonderful tire through each of them. And actually, she had around 30-40 minutes of "warm up" boot camp style exercises on the soccer field (most involving that tire) and then went through the course, practicing each station for 10-15 minutes each. That meant that she completed the course around 7 times. The end was a timed race, from the soccer field into the woods for the obstacles and then around the YMCA building back through the soccer field. I'm really proud of her determination. She finished the 1-mile course in just over 15 minutes.
