Mud Run Over, Huge Thanks (Wednesday, Jun 5)
[ permalink ] [ e-mail me ] [ ]

Before anything else, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported me in the mud run by donating to the Myelin Foundation and The Art of Curing Matt. I don't have any official numbers, but I do know that over $1,000 was donated in under 4 days, and that is incredible. You are an amazing and generous community.

Next, I am happy to announce that Chris Miller wins the "Guess The Mud Run Time" prize. He will be receiving a very cool piece of art by Matt Reimer himself: a drawing depicting an inhabitant of Matthewland. Thank you Matt and Troy for offering that as a prize.

If you are morbidly curious about what it looks like for me to participate in a mud run, I have put together a special mud run tips page with bits of advice for anyone else who might want to try this sort of thing. At the bottom of the page is a link to a gallery of pictures that my wife was fantastic enough to take as she tracked me (with a huge grin on her face) at various obstacles.

If you're wondering: yes, I did get pretty dirty. But my face stayed clean and the mud stayed out of my mouth. So that's something.

Finally, for your viewing pleasure:

In the actual video you can hear my daughter yelling "Lie down in the mud Dad!". Children are so precious.
