Mud and Water Challenge (Maurik, NL) #2

 

This past Saturday Astrid participated in a Mud and Water Challenge of 42 obstacles with kids and parents. 

Astrid was the only Legend (60+) in this group of 90 participants.

She completed the run in 1.5 hours!

 

Astrid said this was the hardest obstacle that she completed in the 4+ km run.

Too bad I was too far away to get a video of her crossing it!

oh, my, so it's not just that they had to run, but then there were traps set for them to make their lives miserable as they were running...lol

(you could appreciate my tongue in cheek attempt at humor in words without tones much better in person)

yeah for all of them

nice set of photos
Ginnie Hart: 42 obstacles to "challenge" the running, yes, Sherri. HA! She completed 35 of them and was one happy camper! So was I when she finished basically unscathed.
All credit to Astrid!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Frank!

Félicitations à  Astrid. Il avait l'air de faire chaud.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. It wasn't too hot, actually, because it started at 5 p.m. But we haven't had rain of late, so the sprinkler was running in the background.
Great montage!! Oh - that does look very tricky!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeyth. She almost didn't do it, until being encouraged by a race helper who told her the best way to tackle it was on hands and knees.
L'obstacle en effet semble assez compliqué, et les participants semblent dubitatifs devant la difficulté de le franchir.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: After much encouragement by one of the race officials, Pascale, she tried it and was glad she did. smile

The whole thing looks fearsome Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: In more ways than one, Chris! We're both so glad she came out basically unscathed! smile

When I approached this obstacle I "studied" it. It was a tricky one and I did not want to fall through with my legs or arms. The volunteer "talked" me over it. I am glad you have these pictures, I shows how big it was/is.
Great collage and picture, Ginnie. Thank you.
Ginnie Hart: It helped to know what obstacles were the most challenging for you, Astrid. I'm so glad the volunteer encouraged you during this one because I know you had a huge sense of satisfaction when you completed it. YAY! I'm just so glad I was there to document at least some of it!
Wouah..impressionnant !!
Bravo à  Astrid , Bel effort ..
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: She's our sHERO, Claudine, isn't she! smile

Good for her! Is the course specially built just for the event or is it permanent?
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Alan. Astrid thinks it's permanent.

I would have fancied a go at this as well Ginnie, it looks inviting.
Ginnie Hart: You would have LOVED doing this, Chad. And I think you and Astrid together would have been a hoot. You could have helped each other along the way! smile
wow... i can't even think of the amount of money one would have to give me to do what Astrid did lol since i would obviously NEVER RECOVER lol it would have to be a lot!!
this reminds me of GI Jane lol
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA, Elaine. GI Jane. I like that thought. She's definitely in that ballpark. smile
Goodness gracious, it's almost like the sort of training course army marines and commandos have to go on time and time again, well done Astrid.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure that's exactly what she thought, too, Brian! smile

Oh kudos to Astrid!! I look at this beautiful collage of photos and can only imagine how clumsy I would feel completing this. smile
Ginnie Hart: She was quite the trooper, Steven. I think a lot of us would have felt clumsy doing this!
Great that you were able to capture her achievement Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I was totally "chuffed," Bill, as you would say. smile
WOW! SHe is a trooper putting herself through these challenges! SHe is inspiring!
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely a trooper, Ruthie. She inspires me, too.

From all the side-on pictures and the apparent waiting line, one gets the impression that only one at a time can cross. The last picture in the collage shows more than one can cross - rickety, rickety smile

Very interesting reporting - you have my attention.
Ginnie Hart: As soon as you add someone else to anything that moves (like a rope ladder, horizontal or vertical), you change the equation for sure, Louis. Thanks.

wow this is really serious stuff, Ginnie. Astrid has it figured out though.
Ginnie Hart: She really did figure it out, Ayush, especially by deciding to make it fun...and not doing anything stupid that she knew she couldn't do!
Wonderful compilation to remember this event! Great job!
Good for her. I know I couldn't do that right now.
