Last year Chantelle surprised us all when she agreed to join Andy and a few other ladies on the local Muddy Princess Vergenoegd run. Now if you haven’t heard of it before, the Muddy Princess is an outdoor women only obstacle mud run, with an emphasis on having a “girls’ dirty day out” in the mud.
There is no timing or competition, instead it is all about fun, with the 18-19 obstacles delivering a variety of challenges that sees the ladies (all generally decked out in tiaras, tutus and fairy wings) having to run, walk, climb, slide, balance and laugh their way over the finish line.
Needless to say, Chantelle was more than just a little nervous come obstacle run day!
However, a couple of hours and a whole lot of mud later, she and the rest of her very wet and bedraggled group emerged victorious. (My shoes that I had loaned her less so.)
The girls and I were there to support her at the finish, and despite being super proud of her for having completed something that is so VERY much out of her comfort zone, I still refused to allow her anywhere near my car.
So, so much mud.
