Fukumoto Fitness Brings 100+ to Dirty Donkey 2016!

Its been a few weeks already but just wanted to highlight how awesome our community did at the Dirty Donkey 5km Mud Run this year at the Assiniboine Downs on June 25th!

10 amazing facts about our group:

-we had about 70% people (out of the 100+) who were doing this for the very first time!

-we had some who have done 2, 3, 4, or even 5 Dirty Donkey events since 2012!

-we had 35 friends/family who joined our team who are not usually a part of the FF community!

-we had 12 people who took up the challenge to do the Kickass Heat (with some tougher challenges)

-we had people ranging from teenagers, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s…and 3 who turn 60 this year or next!

-we had husbands and wives, mother-daughter, mother-son, father-son, father-daughter, sisters, aunt-nephew, co-workers and many more awesome combos!

-we had many different fitness levels which is awesome! (we had 5 of the top 10 finishes in the Kickass Category and the first and “last” place in the regular 5km)

-some people have been registered for 8 months while some registered just that week!

-there was huge dance party and cheer in front of the DJ booth before the race that was awesome to be apart of (and those running the Kickass Heat could hear it…sent chills down the spine!)

EVERYONE had a mixture of excited and nervous and overcame both mental and physical hurdles that day

The race included very wet sand from the storm the night before as well as carrying cinder blocks, crawling under things, a potato sack hop, going over various height walls, crawling under barbed wire, carrying jugs up stairs, crawling over a cargo net on a transport truck, pulling through mud, monkey bar apparatus, doing many squats in the bleachers, carrying a water tube over a balance beam and more!


May FF members commented on how the OCR Training we did Tuesday evening was extremely helpful in preparing physically and mentally to get through the event (and many said that what we do is much more difficult!).

Of very special note, Coach Barbara went through the course with her daughter Lisa. Lisa persevered with amazing resolve and they did the entire 5km together and were a definite inspiration and proud representation of what “better together” means at Fukumoto Fitness.

It was great to see a bunch of you write down a highlight on the poster at the gym to celebrate your experience. Too often we don’t document and reflect on things and when things are a bit rough in life, we have trouble acknowledging the amazing things we’ve been apart of for encouragement and motivation.

We hope you were challenged, inspired, and look forward to next year and perhaps other challenges you can sign up for to pull the best out of you in life!

There is a big album on the Fukumoto Fitness facebook page of more photos!

Thank you very much for all who came and cheered us on and supported us on that day!
