My mom had the foresight to suggest a “before” picture:
She told me I should never show this one to anyone, haha:
I looked around to see if Anna made it, but she wasn’t there. I did see jonathandoeslife and mr-smit, but I was too nervous to introduce myself since
I’m not cool enough they don’t follow me. Next time I’ll do it.
First, we ran a little over half a mile. The first “obstacle” was walking through this water:
We climbed straight from the water into the sand and under the barbed wire for this:
I crawled for a while, then rolled accidentally. I realized how much quicker/easier it was.
Obstacle pics (from the Facebook page):
A series of about 5 jump over the wall/climb under the fence

The hardest part for me- we had to swim to it, climb on the floating thing, clamber over it, and swim to the other side. I am NOT a good swimmer, especially with soggy tennis shoes on.
Then we had to run up the biggest hill I’ve encountered in the aforementioned soggy shoes. I have to admit that I had to walk some. I also walked the steepest part of the descent because I didn’t want to fall.
After the hill, we had the plastic sheeting slide thing, but it wasn’t wet enough, and I got stuck halfway down. Then we had to climb another kind of wall and slide down a pole.
Other obstacles not shown are the cargo net and one more than just left my mind.
The pics from just before the fire:
I don’t know what the expression means.
Then more rolling under barbed wire:
And the final mud hole (under more barbed wire)
