Last weekend, I did something I never thought that I would do!
I did the Warrior Dash.
A 3.55 mile run, sprinkled with boot-camp-esque obstacles.
In the mud.
We dubbed ourselves Team Pansy, and completed the look with handmade tutus, headbands, and T-shirts!
Mike, Beth, Reina, Jennifer, Elliott, and I....all in our tutus!!
(Scott raced with us, but he wasn't in the picture-taking mood before the race)
I have to say, the combination of running, obstacles, and mud can really wear you out! (oh, and the fact that I'm completely out of shape didn't help the situation either)
I felt like I was running through sand.....and that was before I even hit the mud pit!
When it came to obstacles, I pretty much earned the right to be on Team Pansy, if you get my drift.
Our group survived and lived on to become Warriors......here's the proof, in photos!
This one gets me every time.....Jennifer is leading the pack with a smile on her face....then there's Scott drenched in sweat and recovering from a shoe-stuck-in-the-mud incident, and me looking like I'm about to die bringing up the rear.
It gets worse. Here I am, literally having a panic attack at the top of the cargo net. Thank the Lord that Beth was there to talk me down!
I'm proud to call these two kick-ace girls my friends! I love how they're both holding onto their tutus!! This fire was serious business! I jumped over the first fire pit, but skipped the second one (where this photo was taken)
This picture pretty much says everything there is to say about the mud pit. It was like quicksand, no joke!
We were SO proud of finishing!
Seriously, could the men look any more forlorn?!
Scott was not amused by all of the running he had to endure.
This was just one of the large piles of shoes that were donated to a good cause. I don't know what that cause was, but I know that we could leave our muddy shoes behind and they would be washed up and donated! Sweet!
I was sick to my stomach and jittery going into it......but this race was SO much fun!
I have to thank my friends at work for supporting me throughout the race.......I think we will definitely be participating again next year!
