Dirty Girl Mud Run 2012!!

This weekend was a huge vacation and a fun filled adventure packed into only 2 days.  I had the extreme pleasure of a girls weekend away (in Pleasanton) with 5 fabulous girls I've known for a decade!  It was an amazing relaxing weekend.

We did the Dirty Girl Mud Run San Jose (Pleasanton).   It's a 5K (we think) run and muddy obstacle course for women.  It was beyond fun.  It was a huge play ground.  We challenged our ideas of being tidy, we challenged our bodies in the obstacle course, we lifted each other up and supported our friends to accomplish this super fun (and really not too hard) course!  I'm already looking forward to doing something like this again.  It was just fun to PLAY and laugh!!  Our team was named Chicas Sucias (Dirty Girls in Spanish).

Dirty Girl Mud Run 2012!!
I was super surprised and so happy to see Todd and the girls at the finish line.  I had no idea they were coming. Maisy and Maren were very leary of me and super quiet.  Maisy's first question was shyly, "Where did you get that shirt?  Where did you get those pants?"  I'm sure she was quite baffled at why I was so darn dirty, when I'm always trying to keep them from getting so darn messy. It was really funny.

To top it off, we girls stayed in a hotel suite in a hotel with a pool and relaxed in a hot tub sipping drinks after the race.  It was pure relaxation!

Love my ladies!  Thank you coming out to get a little dirty!!  And to Todd- thanks for being so encouraging and being super dad while I was away.  Boy did I need this weekend, whew!
