Down in the Mud
This past weekend I had the privilege of shooting for the Terrain Mud Run outside of San Jose. The Mud Run is part of a growing field of “adventure racing” where runners have to contend not only with a 3 or 5+ mile run (in this case 6.9 miles), but also a slew of obstacles that range from walls and ropes to mud pits and jumping over fires. Some people wear costumes, some are serious athletic competitors and everyone has fun.
I’m pretty sure I got hired because of my experience at the Montreal and Toronto Spartan Races, though the weather was immeasurably better in San Jose than it was when I did the Montreal race. Thank goodness.
