The day after my first tri i did the warrior dash. This whole weekend revolved around my wife and I along with 3 of our friends taking a trip to do the tri and the warrior dash. the warrior dash capped off the weekend. supposedly the dash is 5k, but it was more like 6k. the course is very hilly and muddy and includes a lot of thickets and underbrush. along the way are several obstacles ranging from water crossings to netclimbs to balance beams, monkey bars, tires, and a hay bale mountain. the last two obstacles are the most extreme--jumping over burning logs and swimming through a 30 foot long mud pool with barb wire about a foot overhead. very fun race, very hard as well. super hot temperatures made it very difficult. I decided to run fast to see where i could place and i ended up 11th out of about 4700 and i found out later i won my age group out of about 600. pretty cool to do so well after doing a tri the day before and given all the obstacles. being covered in mud was pretty awesome too!
