Warrior Dash race recap
|Me and my fellow warrior princesses|
We camped out the night before at a local campground and headed out Saturday morning about 7am for the Dash. We met up with a few people from our town (including my boys school principle...pretty cool).
|The helmets are included in the registration!|
We lined up at the starting line around 8:15am for our 8:30am start. There were waves of 500 people every 30 minutes from 8am-6pm! People were dressed in the craziest costumes!
|Who doesn't love the Great American Hero!??!|
Of course like always, I went in to this race telling myself I was just doing it for fun....that changed about 1/4 mile into it when I started passing people. I argued with myself the whole time! It went something like this: "Slow down and enjoy it....pass that guy....no! slow down and enjoy it....you'll enjoy it more if you pass that lady...."
So I did slow down several times... and then I would sprint through an obstacle. At one point there were people waiting in line for there turn at an obstacle....absurd! this was a race! I didn't wait in line, there was nothing in the waiver about patiently waiting your turn at obstacles. I heard a guy yell at me as I passed him "wait your turn!"...I bit my tongue....
I registered for Warrior Dash Tennessee this September. I'll be ready this time!;)
Post race was just as much fun. If you like to people watch, this is the place for you!! Plus they had amazing food! Turkey legs, Philly cheese steak, roasted corn...so good.
|like a "SuperStar"!|
|the guys weren't feelin' it like we were. LOL!|
If you get the chance, do a Warrior Dash! You will have a blast!
Hope your week is going well!
I had a fantastic Memorial Day. I started it out with a PR of 55:08 at the Cotton Row 10k, a race that honors our fallen heroes. They started the race playing military taps and singing America, the Beautiful...it was so touching. I am so thankful that we live in such a blessed nation. I am thankful for all of you who have served or are serving! This is still "One nation under God".
Grace and peace,
