The race has been run. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and sponsored me! I don't have an official total, but we raised over $1,000 in less than 4 days, which is far more than my original "maybe a couple hundred dollars" guess. You folks are amazing and generous.
If you are curious about how the run turned out, please visit my brand new mud run tips page. There is a link to a picture gallery at the bottom.
On Saturday June 1st, 2013, I will be participating in a mud run near my house.
I really really dislike getting dirty, and I dislike being muddy even more. But you can sponsor me to do this run and help raise money for The Art of Curing Matt. My good friend Troy Reimer has a 10 year old son who was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, and any money you pledge will go towards helping to find a cure.
Here is what you can do:
I'm linking to their donation page (instead of setting up a separate mud run donation page) because I want to make sure that the money goes as directly as possible to the organization, with no additional overhead or administrative fees.
If you select "Yes" in the "Is This Donation In Honor of Or In Memory of an Individual?" at the bottom of the donation form, you can let the Reimer's know that you've made a donation. Just enter the following information in the first three fields of the "In Honor Of" page (this will be the second screen of the donation form, after you've clicked Continue):
|Time Guess||Who Guessed It|
I am going with Julian will get through the mud as fast as he possibly can
Go Go Gadget Sanitizer
Mud won't slow Julian down much, I'm pretty sure it'll motivate him to get through it faster!
We definitely need photos.
Everyone I know who does mud runs always pees while they're in the mud. Thought you should know.
Go dog go!
I'm giving you extra mins to allow for obstacles but took off mins assuming you'll go fast to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible. Good luck!
Will it EVER END!!!!
No-one else came up with a 37 yet, so I figured I would.
Very best of luck for tomorrow my good man :-)
If you had to get muddy, this is a great reason to do it!

Please Julian, lots and lots of pictures! I know that this will be very difficult for you! Will you be wearing a dry suit maybe?? (Lots of 8's in my guess because I worked on Notes 8)
Good luck, keep your mouth closed in the muddy bits. You are awesome.
Power through it!
The guess isn't a judgement of your running ability, it's just The Answer to, well, Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Because 42 is the answer to life and mud!
When pain sets in, or things get grimy, think of bacon. All shall be well!
I'm thinking only an extra 15 minutes to slip and slide through those obstacles! Go, Julian! Remember there is a hot shower somewhere at the end of this!
No idea how you will manage to get through the pool of human DNA challenge?
Great cause... nice job, Julian.
Go get 'em big brother! I did the Mud Crusade last year at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and it was a blast. Just remember to take it slow on some of the obstacles because they get slippery. Also, try and start at the front of your group to avoid the pileups. That's all the advice that I can offer.
I only go this high because Julian will stop and evaluate each obstacle looking for the least muddy path.
I cringe just thinking about it. So PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!
