The race started at 10am in a forest preserve in Palatine. We got to the site around 9:30 and Scott, as always, was able to "make" a parking spot so we were close to the start. MuddyMonk doesn't force you to do early packet pickup which is awesome. Packet pickup was a breeze and also registered Josh for the Mini Muddy race. The $35 registration included: a cotton tshirt, american flag bandana, glass jar, drink cozy and lots of food goodies at the end of the race.
Before the race, met up Jen and Tia, took some photos and I had a small freakout looking for my ID... only to realize I put it in my bra... classic!
Race started with a dude chugging a beer and we were off.

Love the Muddy Monk Series. I think us road runners, need a change of scenery every once in a while and think these races are the perfect remedy for that. I will definitely be integrating these races into my season next year!
