Friday's Confession: I'm a Warrior

Friday's Confession ... I'm a Warrior. Well, not yet but I will be once I run in the Warrior Dash on May 15, in Mountain City, Georgia.

I signed Husband and I up yesterday and I'm actually looking forward to it. I used to be a punk scaredy-cat before I ran a marathon and discovered I can do WAY more than I ever thought. Now, at Husband's request I will be trekking through mud and hurdling fire which is fine, ahem, as long as there's an ice-cold beer waiting for me at the end.



Make that TWO beers and some new shoes.

My hubby did something similar the "Tough Mudder" last year, wear old old shoes, and old old clothes! Literally amazing to watch. It looked like so much fun, and a huge challenge that I am actually planning his 40th surprise birthday party around a warrior dash! Enjoy Warrior Wifey!!

Have fun! I've had tons of friends do it and they had a blast!

I did it last year, it is insane! Definitely wear shoes and clothes you don't mind trashing. It is so much fun you almost wish you could run the course twice. Well some of it... :)

Love it! I want to run a Warrior Dash so bad this year, but the closet one is 6 hours away. I could hit the one in michigan when I visit my family this summer, but the one there is a weekend after we had kinda-sorta-typically plan on going. Uhh...next year...it looks like a BLAST!!!!
