One DIRTY Birthday

My birthday was (again) a great one this year! It began early in the morning with a mud race.

Yes, you read that correctly.

This race was SO. MUCH. FUN!
My fellow Dirty Girls and I had a great time. It began with a lot of standing around waiting to be corralled and told to go. We had fun taking some pre-race photos while we were still clean.




Then we were off! The entire crowd was just jogging out of the starting gate.  No one was taking this race seriously since we didn't know what to expect.  We all just had a great time as a big group.




The race was one giant obstacle course.  It was a 10k (6.2 miles long) and there was an obstacle or challenge at each mile or so.  We encountered hay bales to leap over, tubes to crawl through, one HUGE hill to climb, tires to run through, walls to scale over, beer to chug, one {awesomely} long slip n' slide to zoom down, and a big muddy pit to crawl through.

Our photographer was patiently waiting for us at the end to catch us crawling through the mud.  Here we are in the last stretch.  Drenched from the slip n' slide and a little tipsy from the PBR.



And into the mud we go!  It was so gross, but so fun!!


 
I was loosing my shorts!



I wore a button that said "High 5, it's my birthday!" on it.  I received many "congrats" "hell yeahs" and "happy birthdays".  It was great!  I also may have received a few hugs from hot guys ;)

DIRTY girls!


After a much needed shower I headed over to Jed and Danielle's to spend the afternoon, not before first getting a free birthday Dutch Bros though!



For the rest of my birthday I hung out with Jed and Danielle, ate yummy pizza, played with Joie and watched the BSU game. Then I headed over to Richard's for BFF time! We watched GLEE, laughed, ate junk food, talked, and had a great time! Jessica came over and Jake, Tom and Dawn were there too. I was even given the full season of GLEE from Tom and Richard! I'm so excited to be able to watch episodes whenever I want to.

All-in-all I'd say turning 28 was EPIC.
