#100happydays Day 79 – The Bad Ass Dash Challenge!

#100happydays Day 79  The Bad Ass Dash Challenge!

Wow, what a hoot! We just finished the Bad Ass Dash at the Roc in Georgiana. I’ve had to add a new category to the blog – Obstacle Races – because this race had 37 obstacles and not one of them involved mud! The Warrior Dash was a walk in the park compared to the Bad Ass!

The overall distance was only 7k but half way through, after 20 obstacles that involved running, climbing, somersaults, climbing over transport trailers, pushing tires, running pump tracks, carrying sandbags, dodging heavy bags, walking balance beams and crawling under stuff, we were beginning to feel it. In the video you can see that the first bag I passed swung back and walloped me!

 

After balancing on floating dock supports (I think that’s what they were) we found ourselves running up and down the Roc’s ski hill about 4 times then wadding through a waist deep pond.

At one point Glenis ended up on her belly on the floating dock things. I just crawled across them, my knees are shot!

After that it was back up the ski hill. Part way up we had to crawl on our backs up a water soaked sheet of vinyl under a cargo net while two eager volunteers sprayed water on us with fire hoses. That had to be the toughest obstacle yet. I just wanted to lie on the ground to recover from the effort but no, we were off to the slip and slide, the inflatable over, under and through thing, the monkey bars, the tunnels in the sand and the over and under rain soaker.

The last few obstacles gave us as another chance to climb over hay bales and some sort of cargo container and then it was up cargo netting and down the huge inflatable slide into a pool of water. I don’t even think I have listed all the stuff we did here. We both agreed that if we did all of this once a week we would be in great shape!

Along the way we ran into another Running Free Team athlete who was going to race the canine race with his beautiful dog. It was great to see a face that we knew at the event.

While all this was going on, Phil the photographer was there taking some great action shots. I’ll update this post when he post them to his site.
