This sounds amazing! I have always wanted to do a muddy course, but was not in good shape physically... I going to have to watch for them this year!

Good luck, but more importantly have fun!

you absolutely should! it's such a fun time and just makes you feel great (at least it does for me :D) i skipped the Spartans this year because they got soo expensive. the tough mudder was a bit cheaper. we'll see!

Also, kickass goals all around!

More tough mud bath than tough mudder, but you get the idea.

Make sure it's set as rich text in outlook, then you should be able to copy/paste and maintain formatting.

Sounds like a magical soup! Filing that away for 6 months from now when it's finally cold enough for soup in texas.

Funsies!  Also, there's a shoe theme running through this challenge period? Shoes randomly came up in @MikeW's post, and I plan on targeting some cute red flats as loot if ever I get around to posting my own mess ... there's a weird synchronicity thing here that becomes more weirder the more I hang around.

Now on my list, sounds delightful. It's warm here, and I understand the general consensus that soup is a cool weather thing, but I'm up for convenient batch-cooked comfort foods just whenever.  I just made a giant crock pot o' chili last weekend, so sue me.

Samesies. Plus having leftovers in the freezer is perfect for when you don't feel like cooking.

I always think I want ballet flats but then I remember how freaking cold my feet get without good thick socks and the thought of trying to get socks that work with ballet flats exhausts me
