Mud, beards, and the limits of human endurance
Do you know when you’re a kid and your mum says “Stay out of the puddles!” or “Don’t get your clothes dirty!”? Well, that’s why I trail run. The Muddy Masochist is my beardy adventure into the world of endurance sport.
Running is fun (mostly). Sport is fun (mostly). Mud is awesome. Beards are awesome. This blog is my journey through sport, through races, through running in other countries, through my gear, through coping with night shifts. Getting muddy, getting cold, getting tired, getting hurt, and the euphoric high that allows me to function in that state.
That Was Then. This Is Now
Things are a little different. I still like the mud and getting myself into trouble. But my endurance has matured, along with my sporting interests. Yes it is a blog about running but it is about so much more too.
If you ever wandered what motivates someone to tackle an obstacle course, to get up to their armpits in mud, if you ever wandered what a running low was like or if you need inspiration to run – then this is the blog you need to read.
I am the muddy masochist and I do this for fun!
