Awesome August : Day 18

I'm coming to the end of my second week of training for the Warrior Dash – a mud-crawling, fire-leaping, extreme fun run from Hell!  It's 3.15 hellish miles, where I will conquer extreme obstacles, push my limits, then celebrate with kick-ass music, beer, and warrior helmets (according to their website anyway).

The website also provides a training plan for the participants with 3 different Warrior Levels: Virgin, Casual, and Ultimate.  I picked Casual based on this description: You don’t want to win the Warrior Dash - you just want to beat the guy wearing a dress.  So true.  And the training is going well.  I already feel stronger and more warrior-like, which is the point, I think.  Although, I'm not sure it's warrior-like to be so wrecked from training that I want to fall asleep at 10pm...

I'm running with two girlfriends because we are crazy people and this seems like something that needs to be done by crazy people.  You should come cheer us on.  Take pictures.  Laugh at us covered in mud and jumping over fire.  Drink beer and be jealous of our helmets. 

The race itself is on Oct 29th, so besides the training, I think we now need focus on costumes!  Warrior! Huzza!
