Warrior Dash Mayhem!

Mckmama- Not Me Monday



We left for the Warrior Dash early Saturday morning ...


I definitely did NOT make a CD with songs like "Eye of the Tiger" and "I am the Warrior" to listen to on the way to the race...

I am definitely NOT that intense...


We then did NOT pass the time on the way up by working on our warrior costumes 'cause you know, my family would NEVER jump at any chance they can to dress up...









Bibs and time chips on, ready to race!


(Cousin Max and Cheryl/Me/Aunt Tanya/Cousin Liv/Aunt Gina)




I was NOT a little nervous at this point after my Uncle Jay had just ran up and told us it was a lot harder than we thought....




Here we go!!



We ran almost a mile, then got to the first obstacles...



I did NOT have to doggy paddle through this one...




and I did NOT almost bust it going over the tires...






... and I would NEVER use the side of the path to kinda boost my way over the last wall on this obstacle.


(in my defense, I was at a slight disadvantage on this one)



After the worst mile of my life up a muddy mountain, over rusty cars, through tunnels, and climbing a cargo net...


I finally made it to the "Mud Pit"...


I did NOT have this big goofy smile on my face the whole time =)







Finally, after the log roll and jumping over a fire
(scary!!)


I made it!!





We finished!





Of course, we would NEVER jump back into the lake to clean up a little bit...






Then spend a little time "people watching" the other racers...





There was NOT an amazing amount of people dressed up (a lot crazier than us)...




We watched the costume contest, listened to a little music then headed home....





I'm so thankful to my sweet hubby for taking all these pictures
(it does come in handy that he doesn't like running =)





A great day!! (...and later, the best shower I've ever had)



Can't wait for next year!!
