The Mud Run Glossary

With many upcoming mud runs across the country this summer, CustomInk, who allow you to design T-shirts online, is offering a variety of fonts and artwork for runners to create “mud duds” for their race teams. CustomInk has also created a glossary of fun mud run terminology (some of my favorites below):

Bake n’ Cake – standing in the sun until the mud that covers you becomes a dirty crust
Belly Slop – when you wrongly assume a mud obstacle is slick enough that you can slide on your stomach, and instead plant yourself stomach-first in the muck
Birthday Suitors – those men who choose to complete mud races in various stages of undress, or in Speedos
Mud Suds – the well-earned beer you down after crossing the finish line
Stick in the Mud – what you become as a result of a Belly Slop
Tire-Ran-Ass-Sore-us – the creature you become after successfully navigating dozens of tires
About CustomInk
Founded in 2000, CustomInk enables people to design and order custom t-shirts and accessories for their clubs, companies, charities, family reunions, and more. Customers enjoy free design support from CustomInk's acclaimed service representatives, and each custom design is proofed by a professional artist to ensure it turns out perfectly – whether it's being printed on one t-shirt or thousands. CustomInk’s Design Lab provides a huge font library and selection of art, and allows users to upload their own custom artwork.
CustomInk sent us free shirts with their design on it as well as information on the Mud Run Glossary, via Warschawski.  They are nice cotton shirts from American Apparel. We were not compensated in any other way to post about their services.

  1. I think belly slop can be used as a verb too :-)

  2. Nice! The mud runs seem to be popular over there. Here we don't have any formal/official mud runs.

  3. A belly slop sounds comfy too. I hope the Tire-ran shirt has a pic of a dinosaur on it!
