Paid my dues, in the mood,
me and the girls gonna shake the room.

"I expected traffic going to the event but I wasn’t prepared for what we encountered. As we were pulling up to an intersection near the mud run a sheriff started turning everyone around and telling us we couldn’t turn down the main road any longer. When people asked him where we could park, his reply was, “I don’t know but you can’t turn here.” No one really knew what to do so people just started parking on the side of the road. We didn’t know it at the time but as we started walking we figured out that the actual event was 2.5 miles down the road!" --Mud Runner
So...there ya have it. Time to get down to it.
