In the muck and mire

The best sports photography assignment is one that's in the mud. epic mud run

I went out to Midway Travel Plaza on Saturday for the Epic Mud Run. Midway is the new setting for the Travel Channel reality TV show, "Truck Stop Missouri." The film crew was all over the place filming this ridiculous mud race.

I tried to come as prepared as possible for this mud run — and thank goodness! I wore some rainboots and brought plenty of trash bags and a poncho. I was not going to get muddy or get my gear muddy — I've seen what can happen.

There's not much to say about this event other than the fact that it was dirty, muddy, sweaty and awesome. So enjoy some pictures.
