Dr. Kody R. Johnson believes that many illnesses and injuries can be remedied without chemical drugs or surgery. This philosophy arose when he was 18, when Kody first experienced a chiropractic treatment. After that, Kody was passionate about learning how this method of holistic healing can ease pain, boost energy levels, and stave off the common cold. This discovery led him to attend the historic Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, the first chiropractic college in the world, from which he graduated summa cum laude. At Johnson Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center, Dr. Johnson doles out spinal adjustments using a wide variety of techniques as well as acupuncture treatments, nutritional advice, and therapeutic pats on the back.

During the Epic Mud Run, road warriors zip around a 2.5-mile muddy circuit, hurdling, dodging, and just generally avoiding up to 14 obstacles along the way. After stashing belongings at the free gear check-in, dirt devils line up at 4 p.m., and 150 more runners hit the earthy course in waves every 20 minutes. During the race, participants wear a digital chip laced to their shoes to provide live race results, and lens-wielders from ASI Photography snap photos of joggers tackling obstacles, crossing the finish line, or secretly drinking all of the opponents mud. A hydration station midcourse keeps thirst at bay. Each member of the three-person teams runs the entire course, for a combined finishing time that represents the speedy trio. After the dash, each racer receives an Epic Mud Run shirt and a complimentary beer (racers 21 and older). Mud-soaked participants can hose off or shoot water skyward to give clouds a taste of their own medicine.
