Special to the E-T

Team members Phillip Egdorf, Scott Darby, Jeremy Harlow, Jeremy O'Neal, and Michael Viotto placed second in the Corporate Division of the Fall 2010 Mud Run held Nov. 7 on the Trinity River in Downtown Fort Worth.

The Mud Run is a six-mile race interspersed with 31 bootcamp-style obstacles, many of which involve copious amounts of mud and water.

With a time of 1:22:28, the FMC employee team, called Foxtrot Mike Charlie, placed second of five teams in the Corporate Division.

"The team that beat us has won the Corporate Division every time that they've ran in it except in the Spring Mud Run when we surprised them," O'Neal said. "They finished five minutes ahead of us this time, but we can make that up. We'll get them next time."

Charlie finished 18th out of 106 teams in the overall standings.

Training has already begun for the next DFW Mud Run, scheduled for April 9-10. The team is focused and determined to bring the Corporate Division trophy back home to FMC.
