It’s a race filled with mud, muck, and madness.

The Muddy Princess 5k is not like your typical 5k.

And many of the women who run it — are running for a reason.

Like Alyson Friend.

“I was miserable. I didn’t like myself. I was unhappy. I was just going through the motions of life, I wasn’t truly living,” Friend said.

Alyson had hit 368 pounds and knew she had to change.
