Jailbreak - Not your average date
Last year, Craig ran in the Warrior Dash and has so much fun, he talked me into joining him for the Jailbreak. It is a 3.8 mile mud run and obstacle course. And I mean mud - you wade through it, crawl through it, slide down it and into the river. No way around it, you're gonna get dirty. All proceeds go to charity, so he tried to appeal to my conscience as well. Can't believe I said yes. Can't believe I did it. Can't believe I actually had a great time.
