#100happydays Day 65 The Warrior Dash 2014
Another muddy day for the sisters! Only 6 days after the “toughest 1/2 marathon” we dove into the mud at the Warrior Dash!
Before and After!
Buses, crowds and lineups started the day but we were prepared for that and we just went with the flow. Before we knew it we were ready to run. It didn’t really matter if we were running at our 11:15 time, the race wasn’t timed. Just a free for all!
A few line ups
It’s always fun to do an obstacle race, usually mud is involved and to be sure the first thing we ran into was shoe sucking mud. There must be a secret recipe to make mud that thick and sticky. There was lots of slipping and giggles and then hills, hills, hills. We expected that after all we were at Horseshoe Resort which is know for its skiing. Most of the obstacles were easier than the hills but there were a few that made me look twice. Anything that involved balancing on a thin board suspended above the ground freezes me up. Glenis on the other hand is fearless and could probably do cartwheels over all of them.
This is my fear, anything that is off the ground and I have to walk on it. So I crawled!
I do pretty well when I am on or under the ground!
I’m almost through the tunnel, had to crawl sideways because my legs were too long to crawl on my knees.
I’m kind of proud that we made it walking up the wall since we are both dealing with shoulder issues.
The cargo net was a piece of cake, check out the selfie from the top!
We just had to take a selfie at the top of the cargo net, it just so happened that Phil took a photo of us taking a photo! Too funny!
Here are the “Official” Warrior Dash photos!

The Warrior Dash organization really knows what they are doing, organized chaos happens but they get it done. There is always a refreshment area with beer and turkey legs, haha, and this year they had a great band playing. The firefighters were there hosing people down with freezing cold water and there were huge dumpsters for shoes and other bits of mud clumped clothing.
Ah, a nice shower!
The only thing that would make it a little better would be a tent for a change room, it’s tough changing wet clothes under a bath towel with 5000 people milling around you.
awesome pics!!! you are totally right……..the hills were worse than most of the obstacles!! i am sore and bruised but ready to take it on again!
