I did it! I survived the Warrior Dash. The week before the race, I had made up my mind not to do the run because I was still having pain. Saturday afternoon I talked to some people who had finished the race that morning and they had a lot of fun and thought I should do it. Dave ran Saturday evening and after hearing about his race, I decided I would go and just take it slow and have fun. I ran with a friend from high school and having her next to me for the beginning of the race help to push me through the initial soreness in my leg. I was going very slow and yet still passing people, so that was encouraging to me. My goal was to finish in under an hour and my time was 47 minutes. I lost count of the amount of obstacles on the course but the highlights included climbing a steep mud mountain and then sliding down the opposite side, jumping over fire, climbing through a pitch black tunnel, crawling through a mud pond which had barbed wire in it, swimming in a lake and having to jump over floating logs. At the end I was completely muddy and exhausted but I am so glad I did the race! If you want to see pictures, go here and enter in my bib #- 31464. Dave's bib # is 31463.
