Playing Dirty

When we told a co-worker that we really wanted to cover the Dirty 6 event at Rawhide, he was all like, “Why do you like this shit?” We didn’t answer then, locking our eyes to the floor and shuffling in our chair awkwardly. So we’ll tell you, the reader, why. Because it’s a six-mile run through the freaking mud – the course includes a bunch of obstacles like cargo netting – that’s like American Gladiators meeting the physical challenge on Double Dare. That’s freaking cool.

You wanna know what else rules? Finish the race and be greeted at the finish line with (yummm) beer.
