Are you a Warrior?
I first heard about this a little over a month ago from my sister. I thought it sounded pretty crazy at first, but after looking at their website I decided to sign up. What is it? "The Craziest Frickin' Day of Your Life", or a 5k (3.01 mile) race with 12 crazy obstacles. It sounded fun and I really wanted to challenge myself both physically and mentally.
The Hawaii race is on March 24, 2011 and this is the first year it's being hosted here. At the time I registered it cost $45, but you do get a Warrior Dash t-shirt, helmet, free beer and a medal for finishing. There is also an after-race party with live music and food. Since it's a race there are prizes for the top three finishers, but I'm just hoping to finish the race this year. Registration is done through the Warrior Dash website and they do charge a $3 "processing fee" when you pay online, but there are promo codes online so keep an eye out for those (you can save $5 or so). You also chose your wave time when you register, and I'm starting at 930. On the race page they also have a map of the course with all the obstacles so you know what you're getting yourself into.
I've recently been going on runs around my neighborhood in order to start getting in shape for the race. I've been running (and walking) about a mile each run about 3 times a week.
Is anyone else participating in this? Sounds like a lot of fun! It's also motivation for me to start exercising and getting into shape.
