Last month, we stumbled upon a photo project that documented the effects of drinking wine. As expected, the faces of the subjects got a little goofier—and by most accounts happier—the more they had to drink. We thought  applying that same idea to exercise would yield some similar results, and we targeted the mud run at the GoPro Mountain Games as our test case. We were right. A little run through the mud is a sure bet to make people smile.

Photographer Sean Boggs set up shop on the mud run course and took some before and after shots of the race. Here are the results.
