Does the thought of the 80’s Run make you want to vomit? Are you sick of hearing about mud runs, glow runs, color runs, zombie runs, etc.?
You are not alone.
I wrote a post a while back about the Tough Mudder – which I would consider much more physically demanding than a half marathon – and I was shocked at the negative comments it received from our purists.
But I shouldn’t have been.
Why? I was there once too.
You know what I am talking about. You train and you train hard. When you line up to race, there is no joke. You are there to put it all out there. You are ready to take some names. This is serious stuff. This is not neon, glowing, muddy distraction.
When you see people doing their mud runs, color runs and glow runs, you think to yourself: “No way. I am not buying into those gimmicks. Those people aren’t serious runners.” Tell the truth: you feel you are above that.
Well, I am here to tell you that you shouldn’t.
