However, this past week I learned that we are also very very different. We both had exciting plans for the weekend. We both left our homes, husbands, and children and took a road trip. And that is where the similarities end. See I went to play at a music festival, my sister went to a Tough Mudder race. Do you know what that is? It's insane, that's what it is. She went with her team of friends and the idea is to start and finish as a team. The course was set for 19 km of running!!! In between bouts of running you have to do obstacles such as walking a plank at 20 feet in the air, dive into ice water and swim, climb massive walls, and I believe there was even a mild shock station to go through. I told her was crazy, and she laughed...see?
When we both got home we finally had a chance to talk about the fun time we had. I couldn't believe her when she said it was fun. So I thought I would list her idea of fun versus mine and you can be the judge.
-travelled in a vehicle filled with people -travelled alone, quietly
-had to pay an entry fee - was paid to come
-19km run -sat in the sun
-walked the plank -walked to get a hamburger
-took the arctic plunge - had a cold drink
-walked through mud pit -took a hot shower
-earned massive bruises - multiple mosquito bites
-crossed the finish line alive - sang 'I'll fly away' as a finale
-slept in a tent - sank into a soft bed
For all our differences we can agree on one thing, we want to do it all over again next year!
