Dashing like a Warrior

Yesterday Chris, my sister and I ran our second Warrior Dash! Well, it was my sister’s first Warrior Dash and first race ever! The Warrior Dash is a 3.2 mile mud run with a bunch of different obstacles scattered throughout the course.

Our wave was at 11:30, so we got ready and headed to the start.

The start, which includes a 1.5 mile climb straight up Windham Mountain.

The course was almost the same as last year, except there were a few more obstacles in the first 1.5 miles. Last time they were at the top of the mountain and more as you were going down.

Obviously I couldn’t bring my camera with me on the course, but the obstacles were a lot harder than last year! But still, they weren’t anything I couldn’t handle.

I stayed with my sister the whole time! The first half was pretty brutal since she wasn’t used to running straight up a mountain. We took it slow and walked for most of it, which was okay in my book!

Finally we hit the obstacles and she was feeling a little bit better.

We met Chris at the finish line, he did great..what a speed demon!

After hosing off the mud (it was everywhere) we went to get our free beer included with race registration!
