Warrior Dash 2011


This past weekend I ran the Warrior Dash. A 5k (3miles) run through the woods, steep hills, creeks, obstacles, fire, mud, and more. I wanted to take more pictures but i dont have a rugged camera or phone and I think the final mud pit would have killed anything i had. Hell it almost killed me. It was also FUN AS HELL..

About 6 months ago a few of us were talking about this thing and I piped in "I can do that shit, no problem". hahaha I am a dumb ass.

I knew I would need to get my cardio up for the race and just because i am getting old as shit. This was my goal.. So I looked up the slowest guy that finished in my age group from another warrior dash. My goal was 1 hour and 40 minutes.
I started training by running using the program Couch to 5K. I made a mix to run to called "Run Mutha Fuka" and the training began. I recovered our Elliptical from being a coat rack and started using it.
