So today was the final weigh-in for Specks Challange!  I lost a total of 1.8 lbs!!  No no no, that is not my accomplishment.

I did a mud/obstacle run a few weeks ago. I was really really scared and intimidated by it!  In the end, I had a lot of fun and challenged myself both physically and mentally (fear of heights, tight spaces)!  Sure I walked a lot of it, skipped a few of the obstacles (the under ground tunnel you had to crawl through - could not handle the claustrophobia), and it took me an hour and 36 minutes but I FINISHED!!!!  The lesson is don't assume you can't do something - It is often easier than you think!

They emailed pics today - here is the link (I couldn't copy the pictures) !!! I look huge and mud soaked clothes are NOT flattering!  BUT I finished!!!! Here is the proof :)

PS - do not wear stretchy yoga pants for this type of thing!!  They get muddy and HEAVY!!!


  1. I am so impressed on the mud run...I really want to do one but am scared too! You rocked it and I am totally inspired by you! You go Elizabeth!

  2. That is so awesome! Congrats on the loss too!

  3. Congrats on finishing the run. What a great accomplishment. You should be so proud of yourself for pushing past your doubts and fears!

  4. Wish I had read this post a few days ago. I wore the said "stretchy yoga pants" and almost had a wardrobe malfunction. That mud really weighs you down! Next year it's all Spandex for me, no matter what size my thighs are. Congrats on the mud run! Does this make us Mud Sistas?
