I woke up nervous and anxious, but also excited. When I got there, we immediately found some of my teammates and decided that we would all start together.

It was so much fun. There were walls to climb and I climbed the second one WITHOUT ANY HELP! Woo Hoo! Definitely a high point for me. There were tunnels filled with mud and a slide that ended in a puddle of mud. I am happy to report that I did not skip any obstacles, although I needed help with the first wall and hopping from one tree stump to the next and when we realized that we were nearing the end, we were sad. The good thing about the end was that we could collect our free beer.

If you have a Rugged Maniac in your area, definitely sign up for it! Unless you are adverse to mud, then stay far far away. I'll definitely be doing it again next year.
