Warrior Dash

18 days and counting.. yikes!

So I decided this month that I wanted to complete one race every month until the end of the year for April I will be participating in the Warrior Dash which is a 5k slash mud run slash obstacle course; at the end of it all is a celebration and booze, what more could one ask for 🙂

I am not gonna lie I am slightly terrified of doing the Warrior Dash but there is no backing out now, and to top if off I have made Marlboro Man commit to it as well. If he is in I REALLY can’t back out.

So those are the obstacles that the website has listed for the dash, I am not sure if each city doing the run has each obstacle or if they only select 10 or 12 for each location, but seriously look at those things they are ridiculous; jumping over fire?! crawling under barbed wire. I completed envision getting my butt burned and losing chunks of hair in the barbed wire. Why would any sane person do this?

When I was getting a haircut yesterday I was telling the girl about the Leprechaun Leap that I did on Sunday and she was telling me how she doesn’t understand why people pay to run (I will admit, I walked the Leprechaun Leap) and I tried explaining it to her but she wasn’t getting it. Why do people pay to run? For fun, for a challenge, what is your reason? For me I pay to run (or walk or jog) for fun, for the camaraderie, but mostly for the challenge of it, to see if I can complete the run and to see if I can make a better time than I last did. I guess people who do not enjoy running cannot understand why runners/walkers/joggers pay to do their thing, just how I cannot understand why people spend money to watch Nascar or golf. To each their own I suppose.

I have to keep it short today I have a hundred things to do but I wanted to get on here and post a little something, I will be back to update about the Leprechaun Leap soon, it was loads of fun regardless of my being sick.

Also if you are interested in signing up for the Warrior Dash here is the website, they hold runs in a bunch of different cities all over the states. They also have the best of kind of dash where the people who placed in the top I want to say 25 all go to one place and duke it out to be the warrior of all warriors (don’t quote me on that title, it sounded legit though).

Oh one more thing I am still looking for races for May and June if you have any in mind please let me know.

Until next time..
