Here is what you saw on Good Day Alabama for February 21, 2013:
JEH JEH - Jeh Jeh joined us this morning for the annual Jack's Biscuit Bakeoff. The top biscuit makers from stores across the state compete to see who makes the best biscuit this morning. There are set criteria that each biscuit must meet. Jeh Jeh has the tough job of being one of the judges to decide which one is best!

MUD RUN - Jenna Mueller joined us this morning to talk to us about the Dirty Girl Mud Run! Dirty Girl Mud Run, the original-and biggest and best - organized mud run for women, will be held at Talladega Superspeedway. Over 800 women are already registered, and that number is expected to rise dramatically as the event gets closer. Dirty Girl stands out from other mud runs because it's for women only, it's not competitive, and it's all about camaraderie. A portion of all proceeds goes to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and cancer survivors always run for free. The first runners begin at 8am and the last wave of runners at 4pm. An untimed obstacle course that welcomes women of all ages and athletic abilities, Dirty Girl Mud Run challenges women to break from their routine for a day, get out of their comfort zones, get dirty, and accomplish something brand new - all while having a blast. Every one of the obstacles-from the "Utopian Tubes" tunnel crawl http://www.godirtygirl.com/about/ to the "PMS (Pretty Muddy Stuff)" mud pit-is optional, so participants can skip anything they find too difficult. Forming teams is encouraged, and so are crazy team uniforms. A Dirty Girl Mud Run comes with excitement, laughter, and camaraderie-as well as lots of music, food and drinks. From start to finish, it's an unforgettable event and an incredible teambuilding experience. Dirty Girl believes in providing women with a rigorous and empowering environment to achieve new levels in life confidence while having fun and bonding with loved ones. Through challenging yet attainable 5K mud run events, Dirty Girl makes it possible for women to easily engage with one another while overcoming physical challenges and promoting fitness and an active lifestyle.
