Months and months ago, B signed up for the Warrior Dash, which if you don’t know, is a 5K, with obstacles (think jumping over fire, scaling walls, rope nets, etc.). Oh and a big party after! B and a few of his friends all discussed running the race together and made big plans for it. Fast forward a few months later and it turns out B is the only one who actually signed up. Everyone else sort of forgot and then it was too late once it was discussed again. Whatever. I wasn’t even sure if L and I were going to go, but since there wasn’t going to be any partying going on after, we went to keep B company. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
It turns out that B was so muddy because he opted to wade through some nasty mud / water filled bog instead of walking across various logs to get to the other side. I guess everyone else was using the logs for fear of losing a shoe. He informed me that he knows how to walk in mud without losing a shoe since he grew up on a farm. Good to know. I grew up in the burbs and do not like mud or getting dirty in general. Although, I will admit that this race did look fun and I will probably try and do it with B next year. As for B, he now wants to do more Warrior Dash type races, including the Tough Mudder. I think he gets bored with regular running, so this kind of stuff is perfect for him. Maybe he should have just stayed in the Army…. He has also informed me that he will be wearing “less clothes” for the next Warrior Dash. He said his shorts “weighed him down” as soon as they got wet. I for one am looking forward to seeing this next year. Maybe he’ll wear a speedo???
