5 Silliest Myths About Mud Runs + Discount to Muckfest MS

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | fitness , running tips

What do you think about mud runs?  Yay?  Nay?

In the past year and a half, I’ve participated in a couple of mud runs, which I’ve recapped here and here. I never thought it would be the type of event for me, but I had a really great time taking part and having fun with my friends!

Unfortunately, I think that mud runs get a bad rap.  So I thought it would be great to talk about some of the silliest reasons I’ve heard that people stay away from mud runs and try to debunk them once and for all!  I’m also going to tell you about a great opportunity to try an upcoming mud run, the Muckfest MS!

As usual, I’m participating in the Workout Wednesday linkup, hosted by Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Angelena Marie from Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced, Michelle at Fruition Fitness and Nicole from Fitful Focus!  We’re all sharing workout ideas, motivation, inspiration and recipes to try.

I’m also linking with Jill Conyers for Living a Life of Fitness, Health and Happiness!

And last but not least, I’m joining Julie for the Best of the Blogs monthly linkup!

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | running tips

Do you like running in the rain?  I have to admit that while it’s not something that I do willingly, it does make running a lot more memorable!

I thought that we were supposed to have April showers, but now May has arrived and in Philly, we’ve had nothing but rain all week!  If you like to run outdoors, it’s impossible to avoid the rain right now.  And if you have to run a race in the rain, that’s a whole other story…

Since it’s Friday, I’m linking up with Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia for the Friday 5!  The theme this week is fitness, so let’s talk a little about running a race in the rain!

When you work out in shorts, do you ever have discomfort or chafing issues?  I have to admit that I have the past couple of years.  It’s not a fun experience!
