I’m Gonna Be A Grand Mudder

Grand Mudder?


Last week I became a grandmother; in April I’ll become a Grand Mudder.

Yep, Grandmama (?) Ima (?) Lola (?) Carlos (?) is gonna participate in a Mud Run.  For the uninitiated, go HERE.

I’m a lifelong runner, with a marathon and a couple of halves under my belt, but when you get to be my age, you gotta wonder about my sanity in saying YES! Or, as I said after my registration was completed: Oh, HELL YEAH!

My teammates are young whippersnappers, so I’m praying I don’t embarrass myself.  Although, what they are unaware of is my insane competitive streak.  Lawsy.  WHAT HAVE I DONE…TO THEM?!

Of course the event will make for great writing fodder, so there’s that.  Sure, I could be a mangled mess when it’s over, but anything for a story.  It’s a sickness, really.

There’s also the part of me that knows that I should because I can.  There will definitely be a day when I won’t because I shouldn’t.

That day hasn’t come yet (thank you, Jesus), so I’m gonna grab the Grand Mudder fun while the grabbin’ is good.

Carpe Diem, mah babies!

BTW: Our team Captain, Oh Captain! Jessie has assigned this as our theme-song:

♫ Graaaaaaadmuthaaaaa ♫

What kind of shenanigans are you guys up to these days?

Please Share on Your Favorite Social Media! ~ OMT thanks you! ~
