Warrior Dash: The muddier the better!

A couple weeks ago my friends and I participated in the Warrior Dash – a 5k obstacle course in the mountains 🙂 It was a BLAST! The beginning was difficult for me… running at 10,000 elevation is apparently not my thing. And I way over hydrated the morning of the race. Note to anyone running a race: DON’T DRINK TOO MUCH BEFORE THE RACE! You will feel disgusting. Anyway- the obstacles were super fun and a bit challenging! The craziest parts were running through mud, swimming through mud and jumping over fire. Not to mention climbing up and over big walls, walking a plank, crawling through a dark tunnel in mud…. and the list goes on.  Post-race we were able to shower off in outdoor showers but next year I will definitely wear less clothing.  I wore shorts and a baggie t shirt and that was a big mistake…. next year it’s shorts and a sports bra!  That baggie shirt really weighed me down once it was coated in mud that was drying faster than I was running!

What: Warrior Dash
Where: Copper Mountain, Colorado
When: August 21st 2011

Yep, my Bible Study is cooler than yours 🙂


Post-Race after we had showered, gotten our medals & put on our shirts and viking helmets 🙂
