Miss A Columnist

Kelly Fay is the Nashville Editor for Miss A. She is a firm believer that life wouldn’t be as enjoyable without a steaming fresh cup of coffee early in the morning, sipped from a beautifully detailed-painted mug. She values the small but beautiful things in life. She adores travel, even if it is to the local coffee shop; She lives for laughter with a friend, even if it is at my expense; and she loves a challenge, even if she doesn't come out a winner. She grew up and lived in beautiful sunny California where her love for the outdoors was sparked at an early age. Following her desire to be surrounded by beauty, she relocated to Humboldt County to attend Humboldt State University on a basketball scholarship. She received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Humboldt State in Kinesiology with an emphasis in teaching/coaching. Led by her inner-gypsy, upon graduation she traveled and lived in many different places. She called the Alaskan darkness home during the winter of ‘08, experienced” tea time” and” the tube” while living in London, and resided in the sandy dunes of Newport Beach, California for nearly two years. She moved to Nashville to experience the simplicity of the South while still engaging in city life. She spends her weekdays teaching preschool and personal training while she spends her weekends being active, exploring new places and eating good foods. She is an adventurous and spontaneous girl who enjoys a good time but also wants to make a difference in this crazy world!

Who doesn’t like to get a little dirty? Now you have the chance to do just that while supporting a great cause. The REI Muddy Budd Nashville will take over the Tennessee Titan’s playground and make it their own while benefiting the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Teams are encouraged to dress to impress in their most outrageous costumes and get ready for a series of eight to 12 obstacles that will lead you across the Cumberland River via the pedestrian bridge. Teams of two or more have the option to combine biking and running by switching off between the two during the 5-7 mile stretch or sticking together as a unit to complete the course on foot for a 3-4.5 mile course. Finally, the race concludes with what is arguably the most anticipated portion of the competition- participants must crawl through a 50-foot mud pit in the final stretch of the course. Founder of the Muddy Buddy Adventure Series, Bob Babbitt states, “Along with great views of the downtown skyline, our participants will enjoy a more convenient location this year and experience their beloved football field in a whole new way.”

Proceeds from the Muddy Buddy will serve to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation in order to support research for early detection and screening as well as exercise and diet research related to the disease. Participants can register to participate with the fundraising and awareness program associated with PCF, Athletes for a Cure. As a family-friendly event, participants are encouraged to load up the kiddos for some dirty fun. The Muddy Buddy Adventures series accommodates children between the ages of ages 4 and 11 by offering a Mini Muddy Buddy complete with obstacles and a mud pit. So bring your kids, your family or your buddy and get ready to get muddy!
