Warrior Dash Virginia!

This past weekend Paul, myself and our friend Mari, participated in the Warrior Dash down near Richmond, VA. For those that haven't heard of it, the Warrior Dash is a "mud-crawling, fire-leaping, extreme run from hell". Oh yeah!

The obstacle course races are held all over the country (and in Canada and Australia too!). The VA course was 3.56 miles with 12 fun and muddy obstacles including barricades, barbed wire, climbing walls, jumping over fire, and swimming through mud. It was So. Much. Fun!

The race is done in heats of about 500 people every half hour. Paul and I were in the 11:30am heat so we were able to clean up and warm up and be ready to cheer our friend Mari on for her heat at 3pm.

Mari about to start her race!

Way to go Mari! You rocked it!!!

Here are a few more pictures of the costumes!

And the mud! I loved the mud! :)

Warrior Dash. Mud. Sweat. Beer.
