Do not ever sign up for a Dirty Girl Mud Run - these people are thieves

I was signed up to run DIrty Girl mud run in Charleston, WV this Saturday. Paid my $90 entry fee some time ago. Turns out DIrty Girl can’t be bothered to pay their bills to the city of Charleston and thus the event has ended up being canceled…with NO REFUNDS being offered.

Here is the e-mail I received from Dirty Girl today:

Hi Dirty Girls,

 It is with great regret we inform you Dirty Girl Mud Run will not be held this weekend in Charleston, WV. While the city of Charleston worked diligently and closely with Dirty Girl Mud Run to take all possible steps to put on the event, it can not be held due to circumstances out of our control. We would like to thank the city of Charleston as well as the city officials for all the assistance they’ve provided.

 We apologize for any frustration caused by the cancellation of the event in Charleston, WV and we are disappointed that we won’t be getting muddy with you this Saturday. We understand that this cancellation is abrupt.  Per our policy and accepted waiver upon registration, we will not be issuing refunds under any circumstances. At this time, that is all the information we have and we are unable to assist any further in this matter.

So basically, they can take your money, decide not to pay their bills, cancel the event, and keep your money. They suck.

We lost our Kodak kitty today. He was 16. He made it clear that it was his time to go, which I am thankful for. It doesn’t make it any easier though.

Throw Back Thursday

Exactly 6 years ago i became a licensed pharmacist. I’ve come a long way in 6 years!

Indoor walking

I just walked 5000 steps after work to get to my 10000 step goal by making laps around my house during every commercial break. It’s a million degrees outside and this seemed like the best option. And I didn’t even have to wear a bra - even better. TMI? I don’t care. Inside steps FTW. Now I’m debating more steps inside to catch up with shortmom. We’ll see. We’ll just have to see.

Remember when I said run 1 walk 1 and repeat x 10 sounded easy, no problemo?

I was wrong. Really wrong. Days 1-3 complete, but each “run”was a struggle. I’m seriously terrified that tomorrow I have to “run” two minutes in a row. 

  • It’s hot and humid - all of the time. Morning, evening, it doesn’t even matter. Yes, I know it was a horrible cold winter, but I’m going there anyway.
  • I am in horrible shape and have probably gained 10-15 pounds since I would last consider myself an active runner. Ok, maybe 20.
  • My calves hate me. No really. I run and they immediately cramp. I stop and stretch and they cramp more. I’m running through this, but it hurts and I probably look like a drunk monkey cringing in pain while I run.
  • Signed up for the Run, Row, Ride yesterday anyway because the prices went up today, so the pain and torture will just have to continue.
