Coach Cathy is here to say that Hybrid Fitness has some hearty souls who participated in the Muddy Princess in Minot, Maine on Father’s Day.
Here’s a shout-out to Hybrid members Tabitha Fillion, Amy Mitchell, Shannon Burns, and Coach Cathy!
Tabitha got the ball rolling by creating a team, Rack Attack. She signed on three of her besties and anyone looking to get muddy. Shannon and I each brought our daughters, and another friend of Amy’s and Cathy’s, also named Amy, jumped on board for some slippery fun in the mud.
What’s the Muddy Princess, you ask? The organization partners with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for mud courses nationwide. The NBCF aims to fill the gaps in cancer care by ensuring every woman has access to the information she needs. Some of you may not know that I went through breast cancer in 2018. I know this hits home for many people who have experienced it themselves or through the journey of a loved one.
Women of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels from 7 years old and up can enter the Muddy Princess. Participants can run, jog, skip, walk, and sometimes crawl the course. It is not a race, but 100% fun and teamwork.
Participants can skip any obstacle because it’s a completely judgment-free zone. What could be better than that?
Scattered along the course are 18+ obstacles. Some highlights are traversing muddy pools, climbing walls of tires, swinging over mud pits on ropes, sliding slides into muddy water, crawling under or over barriers, and getting soaked in pink bubbles. On average, participants take two hours to cross the finish line. It’s uninhibited child mud pie-making with your favorite gals.
We had a great time and cannot wait to be muddy again next year. Who’s in?
Cathy grew up in NH surrounded by a large, loving family, where she learned generosity and hard work. She now models that for her two children. She was inspired to become a fitness coach when searching for ways to become more healthy herself after a life-threatening illness.
