Warrior Dash Recap

"A mud-crawling, fire-leaping, extreme 5k run from hell. Warriors conquer extreme obstacles, push their limits and celebrate with music, beer and Warrior helmets."

Me and Kovas before the start.  Check out my clean Team Tough Chik tank...
Kovas and I participated in our first Warrior Dash this past Sunday - it was a ton of fun!  Leading up to the race, I was a little afraid that my upper body strength was not up to par, but happily I had no major problems with the obstacles:).  Most of the obstacles consisted of climbing over walls or under wires and boards through mud - lots of mud!

5 of the 14 obstacles - including the fire leaping
final obstacle and hosing station
   
All done!
Another cool thing - shoe recycling.  If you don't want to clean your muddy shoes, you can donate them - check out the huge pile!

We opted to donate...
All in all a well organized, fun event.  Kovas and I are thinking of participating again next year.


Have you ever tried a mud/adventure run?  
Did you enjoy it?
