Another Rugged Maniac and Some Busted Up Knees

I finished another Rugged Maniac last week with my friend Pat and daughter Caity.

It was a lot of fun again, and the elements made it more challenging than the last time I did it.

Many things were the same, but there was some rain, so the wood obstacles, like the see saws and balance beams, were very slippery.

There was fire this time, too, which I didn’t get to jump over last year. It was higher and wider than I expected, but I cleared it without any burnt leg hair.

My knees got pretty battered from all of the crawling through tunnels, caves, and mud pits.

But I have that finisher shirt, so it’s all good.
