Preparing For Warrrior Dash: Obstacles

Muddy, stinky, hot and sweaty obstacle run...The Warrior Dash. 
I was signed up to run it last year with Austin and I won a trip to California the same weekend. Andy took my place and they had the best time...with out me.
Austins shirt "Like FATHER" : Andy's Shirt "Like SON"

There was no way I was missing out this year!! For Christmas the registrations made the perfect gift and I received  the biggest smiles!!

Austin and I have purchased our Green Tutus and Andy is "Odd man Out"...He was a party pooper and refused the brightly colored tulle!

This Years Obstacles:
  • Barricade Breakdown: Series of platforms intertwined with mini barb wired fences that runners must go over and under.
  •  Capsize Catamaran: Shallow body of water where they will need to climb over a series of floating docks.
  • Chaotic Crossover:Runners climb onto a platform of netting work their way across, about 10 feet to the other side.
  • Hard Rain: Runners enter a shallow water pit...(Mud) with water pouring from pipes.
  • Mud Mound: Runners enter to a mud trench leading to a wall, climb the wall and trudge through the mud pit on the other side.
  • Road Rage: Runners stomp over a series of tires and junkyard cars.
  • Great Warrior Rage: A 12 foot wall where ropes are "expected" to help aid in the climb.
  • Mortimer's Crossing: Runners will manage their way across a wobbly rope course.
  • Trenches: ...Trenches Duh!
  • Storming Normandy: Runners do a belly crawl through the mud, over rocky and rough terrain with barbed wire and cargo nets hanging from above.
