Fun in the Mud!!! Pictures from the HURT 100. Photos by akabill

Catra leading Andy, who later went on to kick my ass at the HURT 100, and who finished the 100 mile race.
Believe it or not, this was a good runnable section. Yeah, right!!!
Me after many falls, just trying to suck it up and not be a sissy, and finish at least 100k. Look at all the mud on me, and it only got worse.
I’m sure you have heard the expression, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’. How true that is right now so do not judge conditions by their appearance. New opportunities, new possibilities, or possibly a second chance, are just around the corner. All things are cyclical and evolutionary, just like the caterpillar turns to a chrysalis, so the chrysalis becomes the butterfly - each serving its purpose, each part of the other, so understand our own lives also operate in this evolutionary or metamorphic way. Keep an open mind and the truth will be clear, you will be shown the way.
