Pig Trail Mud Run

A week ago from Saturday Chris ran in the Pig Trail Mud Run.  It was a 5K with 15 obstacles sponsored by the Springdale Rotary Club. He ran with a group of guy friends two of which have never run a 5K.  He named the team the Mighty Mighty Mighty Hogtones.  Thankfully the rain stopped just in time for the run and it was still cloudy. Chris's family all came up to watch and his brother-in-law Seth ran too. Chris's mom, our friend Michelle and I pretty much ran along side them the majority of the race taking pictures.  They finished in a little over an hour but they had one guy on their team that hadn't run very much so they spent a lot of time walking.  I know they all had a great time and plan on doing again next year. 

The only bad thing was that Chris fell on one of the obstacles and busted his knee up pretty badly.  We had to go last week to have it X-rayed to make sure it wasn't broken.  He had to have a tetanus shot and is having to take antibiotics from an infection from the pond water getting into the wounds. He's been pretty bummed because he hasn't been able to go run.  He's hoping to try to go sometime tonight.

This is right after Chris fell on a big rock!
Proof that they got muddy!

Dusty is king of the hay bales!

I loved all of their names.
Elliot had never run this much!!
Pictures are a little blurry here because we had to sprint to the finish line to catch them.
Judy is one of our pastors at church.  She asked Chris if he would like to run in it.
All finished!
