Saturday. . . The 10K Mud Run at Camp Pendleton. Team headband went patriotic this year in honor of the 65th anniversary of D-Day. Each tank top had the name of one of the 5 beaches the allied troops stormed at Normandy. The kids and I went to watch him this year. They loved watching the team dive and belly flop into the mud pit. It was great to be there to watch them finish. The tanks, army men, and firehoses were added attractions.
Clean, ducted taped up, breath right strips in place, and ready to race.

Fun, (to watch).
Team headband all dirtied up.
I think the poses get better every year.
The girls enjoyed shave ice, while the boys showered.
