photoblog image .....Mud & Water.........

.....Mud & Water.........

 

Sometimes I do someting "just because".

Tomorrow I will enter the "Mud&Water Challenge" as a "Legend" which is nothing more than "old geezers over 60 play with mud and water like they did 60+ years ago".... 

No need to say that I really trained for this event and that I will go in prepared. 

The 60+ track is 4 km (2.5 miles) and we go together with children between 8 and 13 years old with accompaning adults.

Ask me Sunday how I am doing..... and Monday I will tell you.

Drôle d'endroit pour jouer.
Picturit: Indeed, Martine and who does not want to play with water and mud grin...
Astrid.
This is a good abstract, Astrid...And good luck!
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. I think it will be fun run/swim. I heard they build the largest water-obstacle in the Netherlands.
Astrid.
Wow, Astrid! Better you than I - looks like so much fun, though! Best of luck to you!!!!
Picturit: The opportunity came and I grabbed it with both hands. I am looking forward to tomorrow. Thank you, Elizabeth.
Astrid.
Training is everything... smile
Picturit: That is a true thing, Larry and add discipline with it. I learned that over the years, no matter the weather, just go....
Astrid.
What a PERFECT image for this challenge you are facing for tomorrow, Astrid. YOU'RE READY! I'm the lucky one who gets to watch you along the way to document it!!!
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. Yes I have confidence that I trained my body enough to come through without injuries and I plan to totally enjoy the moment. I am glad you come along and be able to take pictures.

That sounds a fun idea Astrid. I am sure you will do very well. I look forward to hearing how you got on.
Picturit: When this opportunity came I did not blink an eye and I started training. As you know we have the best area to get a good training. Close where you were with the campervan in Gorinchem is a beach and some fitness apparatus and a large "rope tower" where you can climb. I just made my own schedule and it works well. I will let you know how it went.
Astrid.
Bonne chance .. cela ne semble pas si compliqué ..sourires !!
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine. I just make it a fun race...

Oh, Astrid, I admire your youthful courage! I remember your former photo of this event in Nederland. What a wonderful picture for this challenge!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. This is fun and I will make this fun. When I took this picture I did not know yet abut this event. have a great weekend.

So little Astrid was playing in the mud hole ...

My first born and his wife does this mud obstacle course. More mud and less water than in the video.
Picturit: Indeed, Louis. Sometimes you have to do something out of the ordinary. This is more water and I know that they made the longest water obstacle of the Netherlands. Jeroen has done a few real Mudmasters 14 km with his brother in law and one time with his wife and brother in law and girlfriend they did 6 km. just once just to say I did it and for the t-shirt. wink

GOOD LUCK!! Making memories with children is always perfect!!
Picturit: Thank you, Bonnie. I said to Ginnie, I might just adopt one and we go together.... ha.
Astrid.
I have no doubt you will both enjoy it and do a very good time.
Picturit: I know so too, Bill. Totally going to enjoy it and just the experience sounds great to me.
Astrid.
Maureen and I wish you all the very best for tomorrow, have a good time and for goodness sake be careful.
Picturit: Thank you very much, Brian. I promise you that I would nothing foolish and do things that are behind to difficult for me to handle, I know my limits.
Astrid.
we have a pile of sand under our deck and the grandkids just had to bring buckets of water up from the lake to build castles with motes Astrid....petersmile
Picturit: What else do children need, water and sand and some toys, it kept me busy for hours when i was a kid... it will be fun playing this afternoon grin...

good on you, Astrid... go knock out the competition smile there was a similar event in Venlo on the Maas.
Picturit: It looks like a lot of fun and I will enjoy it. don't you love that a lot of people are into these things, good for body and mind and I am told that "mud" is good for the skin grin...
Astrid.
i have a feeling the one who came up with mud is good for the skin was probably just looking for an excuse to go wild tongue
Picturit: Indeed, and after yesterday my skin is as "new" tongue
