I honestly did not know what I had signed myself up for. I asked myself, hmmmm.. are you ready to challenge yourself doing 19 obstacles in the mud ? Being able to inspire family and friends to join me on the Orange County MUDGirl Run this year was a success. This was my first MUDGirl event and I am truly humbled to see so many incredible women of all ages helping each other throughout out the obstacles. So much peace, love, unity and respect was felt at this special event! Re
Greetings fellow MUDGIRL’s My name is Dana, I am 49 years old and honored to be a MUDGIRL Ambassador. MUDGIRL was my first mud run, it changed my outlook on life. Which is why MUDGIRL will always hold a special place in my heart. I started doing MUDGIRL a couple of years ago as a way to get my girlfriends together to do something fun. Let me be honest though, I was just looking for a girls weekend away to party and I was not the only one. As I said it was my first mud run, it
How did I end up here ? This is a question I ask myself every day. I never imagined I would fall in love with fitness. I had no idea that I, the uncoordinated big girl (I am 6’2” and around 235lbs), would be on an incredible journey. A journey to a better me. I never knew how happy my heart and soul would be to cross my first finish line, and to then witness others cross theirs. It’s amazing! Back to the Beginning Let me back up a bit for you.

Listen to your body. Be patient. Be disciplined. Long story short: Today, I am 31 years old. My story is typical to the ones you think can only happen to other. I never enjoyed sports, and actually never practiced in any. Until one day, I decided that it was time to kick myself in the butt. I now lost about 30 lbs (maybe less maybe more?) and my life changed from A to Z. Now, as if there was some kind of magic trick, a lot of people are asking me how I did it. What is my mi
So? These resolutions... How are they working out for you so far? Yeah, you know the ones I'm talking about. The ones you made on January 1st, and that are fading away more and more as the year passes. New year, new me! Yeah right. Please excuse my septicism, the point I'm trying to make here is not negative, I promise! I would actually like to openly question this need, this urge to make resolutions. The more I think about it, the more I realize it is simply about wanting to
Who would have ever believed that, one day, I would be doing an obstacle race ??? If five years ago, you would have told me I would be doing this type of race, I would have laughed in your face and called you crazy. No, seriously… me ? The girl who hates exercising more than anything, and whose physical education teacher at school would call her mother every year to warn her that I would have to run a predetermined distance or otherwise I would not be able to pass the class.
