Hey, Dirty Girls! This Run's for YOU. Dirty Girl Mud Run comes to Baltimore on May 14th. {Discount Code}

I feel like I've been running a marathon since becoming a mother. I've been running errands, running around looking for my keys, running after my toddler, running up and down the road to sports practice and doctor office visits, running away from my responsibilities and on some days, I've felt like running away. If you add up the total amount of miles that I've accumulated over the last decade, well, I should be on the couch asleep right now. But, these examples aren't the type of running that challenges me in the way that I want. I want (need) something that is not necessarily required of me to complete, but presents the opportunity for me to follow through on the commitment.
For the last few years, I have been saying that I am going to complete a 5K run. For those of you who are not familiar as to what a 5K run is, the simple answer is: a run that is a little over 3 miles in distance. This is shortest run that one can participate in, out of all the many runs and races that are offered. It's a good place to start if you aren't an advanced runner or want to get your feet wet (and sweaty...ha) into the racing world (check out a few races over on Pursuit of it All to get an idea). A 5K is also a great way to spend time with friends and family to create memories. I also hear there is a great amount of support from strangers in this whole running/racing world. I'm here for it all!
I'm happy to announce that I will be participating in my first (gasp) 5K run – Dirty Girl Mud Run. I know for some of you this is hilarious because you have a shelf full of medals and trophies from the gazillion races that you've participated in. But for me, this is an accomplishment. I have to start somewhere. And for someone who despises running – I mean I HATE running– I am already proud that I have even entertained the thought of registering for this event. I've already won in a way.
I think that I am most excited to complete this run with friends. Since sharing online, I've had a few of them say that they would like to join in on the fun. I think it would be great to have an entire team of the people that I love working together towards one common goal. This is what Dirty Girl Mud run is all about – inspiration and empowerment. I also know that there will be a few laughs along the way. My cousin even reminded me that the mud will serve as a great conditioner for our hair. You know us black women don't play when it comes to messing up our hair (or so they say). So, this is serious business here, people.
Here's what you need to know if you want to get all down and dirty:

  • This is for WOMEN only. Sorry fellas, but girls just wanna have fun.
  • There are obstacles with hopes of promoting you to run, jump, climb, walk, whatever!

  • There is A LOT of mud. You will get dirty. Okay?! 
  • This is the World's Largest Women's Only Mud Run.
  • DGMR is partnered with breast cancer prevention & education organization, Bright Pink.
  • The run will take place in 19 cities. 
  • If all of this sounds good to you, register NOW! Use promo code: MOMMY2K for a 10% off discount at checkout. For my Baltimore friends, go here.

  • I know this is going to be an awesome event. I hope that this run inspires me to take on more healthier lifestyle choices and enter more runs in the future. I do know that starting my run in the mud is a pretty sweet start.

    Good luck, you dirty girls!
