Both 3 mile and 6 mile runs are riddled with obstacles from start to finish. Each distance starts and finishes at Rawhide Wild West Town. Participants must successfully complete water and mud obstacles. They're not tough but don’t wear anything you can't wash and clean after. You’ll encounter a wall of water, two river crossings, a down and dirty mud crawl, obstacle course, a slippery mountain climb, GIANT slip n slides and of course a dip in our HUGE mud pit on your way to the finish!
I'm not sure yet if I want to do the 3 miles or the 6 miles but it sounds like a lot of fun and something I certainly wouldn't have attempted 50 lbs ago. To be honest, I'm not keen on doing it now but I think by September, I'll be in even better shape and should be able to get through it. I'm thinking this will encourage me to keep running but I'll also have to add some strength training and eventually a few boot camps too. All of this to lead up to this monster of a run next year:
The Warrior Dash
This insane little run is 3.4 miles with 12 different obstacles that definitely look challenging. Unlike the mud run, it has more of an urban feel. Looks fun though! I missed it for this year, but again, not in good enough shape yet anyway. The Mud Run will be a good practice run for this one.
So there you have it. Challenge Extended...Challenge Accepted (a la How I Met Your Mother for any fans out there).
NSV: I wore a dress to work yesterday. An actual honest-to-God dress...and I wore it...wait for it...Spanx-less! And I didn't feel self conscious a bit. Truly a personal victory. The beauty..it was an old dress. I haven't worn it in years and it's even a touch big. Wahoo!
I have a call into a realtor hoping to get a chance to go look at some rentals this week. No offense to anyone who is one, but realtors drive me crazy. I went through this last time looking for a rental. I realize they don't make much (if any) money off these but come on! At least return phone calls! Even when I call the realtor who has the actual listing, they don't call me back. If I were a landlord, it would tick me off knowing that perfectly good renters are trying to see my house but my realtor won't call them back. *sigh* Oh well. We gave notice to our old landlord and he's going to write us a letter of recommendation. I'm hoping that helps on the whole credit check front. I know I'll obsess over this until we find a place, have our application accepted and have paid a deposit. If only I could obsess about going to the gym like this.
It is hump day...thank goodness. So how about a Hump Day Happy Thought:
