In April, my wife approached me about doing a mud race. For those who aren’t familiar with a mud race, it’s basically a 5K with roughly 20 obstacles throughout the course, most of them ending with the participant getting soaked, in mud, from head to toe. There are mud pits you have to run through, and there are mud pits you have to army-crawl through.

I had never attempted to run a 5K, let alone one full of basic training-like obstacles. Actually, I haven’t ran consistently (actually that should read “ran at all”) in the last 8 years. But against my better judgement, I decided to do it. Why not? “It will be a fun experience” I told myself.

Back in March, my wife had completed her first 5K/mud race, and I was there along the entire course with my camera documenting her and her team’s triumphs and joy as each obstacle was overcame. But with the race we were about to embark upon, the camera man (me) was going to be getting down and dirty, leaving us picture-less.

Luckily, I was presented with the opportunity to review the ATC Chameleon, a dual-lens action camera made by Oregon Scientific. The camera can be mounted to your body, allowing you to capture 340-degree video of your current activity.
