|Warrior Dash Finishers!|
We arrived about an hour before our start time. We signed up for the 9:30 wave and the weather was perfect. We picked up our packets at registration which contained our timing chip (which was to be attached to your shoe), warrior hat, shirt, and our participant number. We headed to the start line as soon as the 9:00 wave left, and 30 minutes later we set out on the 5k course. I got off to a good running start and ran a good mile without stopping to walk, but after that I was so tired I walked the rest of the way. The obstacles in order were:
Great Warrior Wall
|The infamous mud pit|
One thing I was surprised with was how organized this event was. There was food, merchandise, live entertainment, a bag check, changing area, first aide (both on site and along the course), etc. You also got a free beer if you handed in your timing chip from your shoe. The live music was pretty good, and I highly recommend getting the turkey legs! They were surprisingly really good. The merchandise they were selling was also reasonably priced so I got a tank top ($10) and a towel ($15). On your participant number, they had a coupon for $5 off $25 or more, so I got both for $20!
Even though I finished with a time of 1:08, I'm still proud of myself for finishing strong, and it was such a fun experience. I will definitely do this next year if they come back to Hawaii!
