I never really thought this would be something I would want to do, but we now have one coming to MI and a ton of co-workers are doing it, so I am interested. Online it actually looks pretty sweet and like a lot of fun.
I just have questions about the swamp and mud areas...Are they man made? Our race is in a county park, and I am just a little concerned about running through a swamp area and not knowing whats in it. I am not worried about fish and things, but I am terrified of leeches. Someone please tell me if this is silly.
Also, I am worried that I do not have the endurance to participate in something like this. Ours isn't until the end of July, so I would still have some time, but I am just now able to complete a sub-40 5k, and I have been running since last June.Is it something where there are people of all shapes and abilities, or is it pretty hard-core competitive?
