So. this is happening. http://www.ridewithrendall.com/events/anvil-on-foot/
My husband and I are doing it.(read: I talked him into it).
Last minute sign up, encouragement from my running partner from the weekend, and a desire to do another 5(ish)k race before snow flies made me thump the VISA down. At only $15 a pop, its a relatively inexpensive race, and looks like a TON of fun. Obstacles and cross-country running? Bring it on!
The course is at a (former) riding facility here in Ottawa, The National Capital Equestrian Park, and is run in conjunction with a cyclocross event.We get to run the course first, then the crazy folks with bikes get a go. I plan on staying to watch a bit, and have some lunch. Hey, its kind of like a date, just with more mud. OH, and I get to run with a new friend. Double bonus!
I am going to try and get my hubs to wear his Tough Mudder head band. I am going to try not to fall and break something. Heh…
What is Cyclocross, you ask? I had no idea either, so I exercised some Google-Fu and here is a great video demonstrating it:
Yup, we get to run what they are going to cycle. Neat, eh?
