Earlier this month my roommate participated in a Warrior Dash- basically it’s a 3 mile race but with lots of obstacles throughout. I didn’t sign up because 1) I was being a wuss and 2) it was too close to my sister’s wedding.

I did go watch though, and now I wish I’d run with them!

(Some of these pictures are borrowed from L, who is one of Hope’s best friends. I had my camera and L’s camera during the race…but figured I’d give her credit!) Smile


Okay first of all…this is how our morning started out. We rode a bus to the race spot from where we parked, a couple miles away. Our bus driver was very nice, telling us to have a good day, enjoy, etc.

We hopped off, started walking, and… BAMMMM!

“Was that just our bus running into a pole?”

Seriously. Head on. Front of the bus, meet pole.


Anywayyyyyy…I’ll just post a bunch of pictures, because really the day was awesome. It was SO much fun to watch and I hope to participate at some point. I am totally not a “race person” AT ALL but watching some of the people and the physical shape they are in…I could do it. I think.

The costumes of some people were awesome!
