Mud Runs

Posted: Updated:

It's time for you to get down and dirty. Really dirty. Deco's checkin' out mud runs: the upcoming Mud Mingle at Oleta State Park and the Down & Dirty Obstacle Race at Zoo Miami. Here's to mud in your eye and all over your body, too.

These weekend warriors are having a blast. Happy as pigs in, well, mud. These are scenes from the Mud Mingle Miami and Zoo Miami's Down & Dirty Obstacle Race. Buy why in the world would anyone wanna run in mud?

Adam Mayer: "To become weekend warriors, to get out of their mundane regular office life and and do something exciting."

Both events are open to all fitness levels. The Down & Dirty's tough but manageable, while the Mud Mingle's more than just a little wacky.

Adam Mayer: "We're the silliest, messiest, muddiest, funnest mud run of them all. We try to take the seriousness out of it."

It's not about winning, it's just mud madness.

Shawn Mohabir: "I said, 'Hey, I feel like running in mud and getting shocked and jumping in ice, really push my boundaries, push my limits, see what I'm capable of.'"

Garfield Griffith: "Let all your cares and you get to roll around in the mud when you're, like, 40. It's great."

And it's not just any old mud.

Adam Mayer: "The perfect gooey mud. Basically it's a mix of peat and soil. It's like the perfect blend; you can make mud angels and mud pies."

Whether you're a single ready to mud mingle or a senior, you could get hooked.

Adam Mayer: "People, as soon as they get to that point where they're already covered in mud, they're just OK. 'I wanna do another one. I wanna get dirtier. I wanna get muddier. I want higher walls, jump off this.' They just get back to -- it's almost a childhood thing."

Speaking of childhood...

Adam Mayer: "This year we've got a new final obstacle which is pretty epic. It's almost like basically you're being given birth to. The amniotic fluid. It was very hard to get. The hospitals kind of looked at us funny when we called, so we're sticking with mud, but it's a big sort of water slide into a mud pit."

You're gonna get dirty. Dress how you like.

Adam Mayer: "Once you put on the Batman bikini, you don't take it off."

And remember the motto: Be prepared.

Adam Mayer: "At the finish line you end up with a pie in the face just like that."

    The Return of the Crop Top

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.

    We're not Realtors, but we love a house that has luxury to spare. So when NFL star Asante Samuel invited Deco for a little tour, how could we say no?
