Running…crawling…jumping…climbing…balancing…maddening…all together rolled up into one thing which was ‘GHAC Hyderabad Mud Run 2012‘. 5kms running through the slushy mud, crawling into the mud pools, jumping into the mud ditches and all the way grinning like muddy fools when the onlookers were wondering what the crazy people were upto…he he
It was a 1.7kms track filled with mud pits, pools, ropes, ponds, sticks which was made with some 15 obstacles one has to cross and this was to be done thrice..
2: Had to crawl in a muddy water pit. One has to crawl under the ropes so that you go low, but I think it was so that one will not escape from the middle 😛
3: Was to catch the rope and swing across the mud pit…whaooo…ehaoo..I am the Tarzan..
4: Was to crawl or roll under the ropes and hit a minimum of 5 bells tied on each side.
5: Then we had to pick up some rocks which we have to take till the next few stages and walk on the poles…I can balance 🙂
14: Some brave hearts ran between the fires…gulp luckily by the time my chance came the fire was out.
15: Phew, then came the toughest one…a big mud pool which we have to swim across 3 times..The mud was the thickest and to keep you deep in the mud, it was covered with sheets so that you stay in and do not get up once you get in…once out, every micro cell of your body is dipped in mud and we look like one big chocolate stick 🙂
And all this had to be done thrice and we did it…amazing fun, something which i will remember for a long long time…At the end I looked like one big happy muddy piggy girl, but loved every moment of the run.
