We got up early, donned our tutus and headed to the starting line. Candyce and Umber split off first leaving Sam and I to chat as I we paced along. Soon we were greeted with the first of many hills. We had to slow a bit and I felt those drinks from the night before start to take a toll on me. It also didn't help that we didn't find the aid station until well after the 2 mile mark. All in all it was pretty decent race and I ended up finishing much faster than I thought.

I absolutely LOVE Warrior Dash. It has officially become one of my favorite races. I enjoyed doing it last year with my sisters, and running it a second time around was nothing short of spectacular. I was able to make it through every.single.obstacle. yup, none of them could beat me. This race was all about fun for us so we weren't worried about time or technique. We just wanted to have a good ol' dirty time. We started as a team and ended as a team, all 5 of us together. After lots of rinsing and some pictures I was able to get what I missed out on the year before. A turkey leg. It was just as glorious as I imagined it would be. I tore into it like a savage and washed it down with an ice cold beer. We hung out for a few hours with the Viking family then finally made our way back to the car. I'm starting to wonder if maybe the mud runs is really where my heart is...only time will tell.
Here are a few of the Warrior Dash highlights...
