On Sunday, a group of gals got together, emblazoned in Athena Coaching T-shirts to compete (aka, play) in the Miss Muddy run (www.missmuddy.com.au) – “a fun celebration of women, for women”. It’s a very light hearted 5km run with obstacles, mud, foam and of course, cannons spraying pink paint! Proceeds from Miss Muddy go to various women’s charities such as Fitted for Work, International Women’s Development Agency (IWDA) and White Ribbon Australia just to mention a few.
Aside from the fun and the feel-good-factor of supporting fantastic charities, it was really lovely watching the team work, both within teams but also between teams. We were crawling through mud pits and scaling 3 meter high walls. Everyone got in there and lent a hand wherever it was needed (quite often on someone’s toosh to push them over an obstacle) whether it was your teammate or not. Our team name was “Pretty Muddy Awesome” and we did it proud!
