three mutant, half-pig mud-runners pose for a photo

#119 "Rashers"

Mud-running looks like a lot of fun, but I just know if I tried it, I'd snap both of my achilles tendons, break a leg, get an ear-nose-and throat infection, have dirt under my nails for life, tear a nipple, irreparably harm my nasal passages from mud-snorts, irreversibly stain my pristine porcelain private parts, decimate my tailbone, and lose the use of my bum-muscles. Mud-runners have guts. If they have any fear of abandoning themselves to uncontrolled slipping and sliding, it surely doesn't stop them. If a dictator took over the USA and forced all citizens to do a mud run, they would have to peel me away from my precious tar and concrete—those predictable, stable surfaces on which I feel safe and sound. I did trip over a raised manhole cover during a marathon in 2005, but I'll never blame the pavement for that—only mankind.

Crusted Salt comic strip is a runners unique look at running, racing, marathons, barefoot, and love with an occasional non-running related topic (a.k.a. secular). It is not for children (rated NSFK) as it sometimes includes mature themes, a saucy word or two, and a tad of comical nudity. Updates are muse-driven, so will happen in unpredictable spurts. If you subscribe to the RSS feed, I'll keep you posted. Enjoy——Jimmy
