Warrior Dash

This weekend my friend Constance I ran in Warior Dash in Jackson.  It is a 3.5 m run with obstacles like climbing walls and rope fences, swimming, treking through mud, climbing under barbwire and over logs.  My friends has asthma (and its pretty hard to bring an inhaler with you through the mud) so we walked a good bit and I was a-ok with that (bc i was the smarty pants who had run 5 m that morning. I should have skipped my running group run but no, I had paid for it so I was going to!) My sister, Marley, wants to do the Warrior Dash in NOLA in October so if we do, I am hoping that we can most of it, not just some of it.

My friend Mallory ran the Warrior Dash in Houston and lost her shoes in the mud, so we ducktaped ours to be safe!

The waiver included my initials over 20 times- signing off on wild animals and fire.  I saw no wild animals so I guess that was a precaution since we were in the woods.

Here are our before and after photos....

We had tons of fun and rewarded ourselves with candy, sweats, and The Lucky One where we got to see Zach Efron without his shirt on :)  On sunday, we then went on a walk with Claire (who also did the race) because we though slowly using our muscles might make them ache less!  And then we all went to get snowcones, watch shakespear in the park (A midsummer nights dream!) and eat sushi.  It was a great weekend.....not to mention Zoo Brew with several friends (fundraising party at the zoo) Friday night where we got to take a tour of the tiger exhibit and go into the building with the caged tigers.  Of course, I named one of them Aubie!
