Back from the Polish swamp!
  I did the Bieg Katorznika swamp run this last Sunday! Promise to write a report soon, but for now, here's a photo of the awesome T-shirt we got and the medal which is actually a huge horseshoe made of solid iron and weighs approx 4lbs

This is the three of us before the start (I'm in the red top)

This is me right before the finish

There are no official photos as of yet, but I found a blog with really good pics CLICK

And if you CLICK HERE there's a video (Polish TV news program) where they talk about a marathon first, but at 1:15 it's ME emerging from the mud  under a wooden bridge :) Cool!
(I'm in the red(looks brown) top while my friend comes behind me in black)

Fantastic! That looked like a really deep hole under the bridge!

At first I misread (due to it's color in the picture) that it is made of solid gold and was pretty impressed :)

Ha-ha :) There were gold, silver and bronze ones for the fastest, but all were made of iron of course :)

Awesome! Great pics, too

I'm not an expert in Polish
but "Bieg Katorznika" sounds like a prison break
of some sort (Bieg = run, Katorznik = convict), no?
bozotkutya From: bozotkutya Date: August 17th, 2010 02:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, it means convicts' run or something like that. There was also an Escape from Alcatraz race on the same course where the pairs had to run tied together with a chain :)

That medal is serious business!
bozotkutya From: bozotkutya Date: August 17th, 2010 02:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Absolutely! Even the little kids got such huge medals, the smallest ones could hardly lift theirs :)

Something like this might even convince my husband to run with me. :P
