*I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mudderella. I received complimentary admission to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.*
I can’t contain my excitement any longer. I am here to tell you all that I officially signed up for my first Mudderella and I can’t wait! Before I tell you all about Mudderella, let me take you back to the year 2014, specifically July when I had my last baby Taylor. At this time, my girlfriend called me up and asked me to run the Princess Half Marathon in Disney. I think I laughed in her face and told her a flat NO! I told her that I hate any sort of running or obstacle courses, so it was a definite no. She begged and pleaded so I finally agreed to sign up with her, under the condition that I would probably not run it.
Well, about 2 months after I had Taylor, I stepped out for my very first run and I actually enjoyed it. It was a total shock. Me someone who could go more than a mile without gasping for air?! But indeed I did it and continued running. Fast forward to February 2015 and you can see me crossing the finishing line at the Princess Half Marathon. Pretty exciting day if you ask me!
So when the opportunity came to me to participate in the Mudderella with three of my closest friends and family, of course I had to oblige. I am so in love with fitness now that this was a natural undertaking. I immediately thought to call my friend Kassie who lives in Massachusetts and is a great friend of mine. I asked her if she wanted to do the Mudderella and she practically screamed on the line, “YES”! We then asked her husband and my husband to join, to all form #TeamStrong team.
I have heard of Mudderella before but was always too coward to even attempt it. However, when I looked a pictures, I was eager to try this and cross it off my bucket list. I mean running a few miles and having fun mud obstacle courses in between. What could be better?! This looks like an absolute blast!
If you are not familiar with Mudderella, it is a full-day athletic event series and experience for women by women. That is right- Mudderella is the perfect time to gather your girlfriends and have a blast, all while getting some exercise in. It is a time to feel great by laughing your way with your girlfriends, getting in a good workout, and enjoying the day. It is all about being strong together. Girl power to its finest!
Muderella is the first and only full-day athletic event series designed for women, by women, to challenge all-round strength, balance, endurance and agility in a team environment. What I love about this event is it is much more than an everyday event. It is something that you will thoroughly enjoy from start to finish, and you will be wanting more when you are done. Mudderella is a quickly growing community and they want you to sign up today! It encourages you to set your goals and achieve them, while having a grand ole’ time in the process. It is certainly an attitude and a way of life that will be fulfilled when signing up for Mudderella.
So my training has officially begun for Mudderella and I can’t wait to bring to all of you, all the pictures and fun I will have when I complete the course in October. Right now, I have been lifting some weights (about 20 minutes daily) and going for 2-3 mile runs about 5 times a week. My girlfriend is also doing the same so hopefully by October, we will be ready to rock Mudderella. You can find the complete Mudderella recommended training here: Let’s get training.
I know you are all ready to get signed up so here are the dates for all the future Mudderella. I hope you can join us!

Oh wow, good for you. I don’t really think this event would be for me, but I would like to someday do the half marathon.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I bet you are going to have so much fun! I have always wanted to take part in something like this. Also, I bet the mud will help to keep you cool.
Christy Maurer says
Have a great time! I am sure you will. What could be more fun than being in the mud lol. Good luck!
Kelly Hutchinson says
I would love to participate in Mudderella, but it is not coming to my area. Good luck!
I can’t wait to see how much fun you have at the Mudderella! I’ve always wanted to try one but there’s not one in my area.
Liz Mays says
Wow this is going to be so much fun! Good luck with your training. you’ll have some serious bragging rights after this!
Mudderella?? How cool!!! I don’t run but I would love to do a fun run like this!!
Sandy KS says
That looks like so much fun. I use to run all the time before I was shot in the leg. boy, do i miss it.
Joanne T Ferguson says
How much fun would this be? The only thing missing in the mud is me! Sounds like a great way to exercise and pretend one is about 5 splashing in mud puddles in the rain!
Wow! It’s so nice to hear that you love fitness as I do, too! Being a participant in a competition like this is very exciting. Forming a team is even more exciting!
I don’t run, I walk, but my daughter does. She just completed the Warrior Dash a few weeks ago, so she would love this. I’ll tell her about it. Good luck!
I love mud runs! They are so much fun! I really enjoy running so doing any kind of run is fun for me but especially ones with mud or obstacles!
Chubskulit Rose says
Wow that sounds fun, I would like to participate in that kind of fitness event!
Good for you. I do believe that event is fun, but I don’t think I have the stamina to do it. 🙂
Uplifting Families says
This sounds like so much fun. I wish that I could do this but it is something I don’t think I will ever get to do. It bums me out because I used to be active and enjoy working out. I felt much better when I did.
Congrats and Good Luck! I heard of Muderella thats gonna be intense, dirty but I am sure lots of liberating fun!
I’m sure you will have so much fun. I am not a runner, but I would love to experience this even just for once.
lisa @bitesforbabies says
I’ve always wanted to do one of these….they look like so much fun! However, I just never seem to get around to doing one!
Oh how awesome is this! I would love to do this. I have always said I wanted to do something like this and a color run. I need to one day, how fun!
Omg not going to lie… I hate running but this just looks all sorts of awesome!!! I totally wanna do it!
Ann Bacciaglia says
This looks like a great event. I have friends that did this last year. I would love to do one with my friends.
Nickida Stephens says
This sounds really cool. I am running in my first race in the fall. It’s a race to raise funds for Autism Awareness.
Life as a Convert says
Never heard of this race before, but the name alone makes me want to run it. It’s a perfect combination of hardcore and girly 😉
Oh my goodness, how fun is that! I can’t wait to see pics after!
Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies says
Good luck on your marathon! It sounds like you’ll do just fine! I’ve some family members that I’ve also tried marathons and were all quite proud of them.
Fee Roberts says
This looks like fun. Hope you have a great time.
aly mashrah says
