Next Race On The Books...The Warrior Dash!



Hi everyone! A few days ago I took the plunge! I went online and registered for the Warrior Dash in Minnesota! I was a pain in the butt and finally talked my co-worker Stefanie into running it with me. She totally caved under the pressure! I am super excited for this one!


The Warrior Dash is described as America's most insane race with 11 obsticales from hell!

1) Petrifying Plunge...Slosh down a slippery slope!

2) Tunnels of terror...Burrow through the black tunnels!

3) Great Warrior Wall...Conquer the wooden barricade!

4) Cliff Hanger...Rappel down the steep ravine!

5) Hay Fever...Hustle up and over giant straw bales!

6) Junk Yard Jump...Stampede through the scrap yard!

7) Sand Trap...Trek through the mounds of sand!

8) Cargo Climb...Maneuver over the cargo nets!

9) Santan's Slope...Skid down the muddy slope!

10) Warrior Roast...Leap over the warrior fires!

11) Muddy Mayhem...Scramble beneath barbed wire as you near the finish!


Doesn't this sound pretty freaking fun? Yes, I do realize that this will be challenging as hell but I am up for it! Totally feeling like a tough chick now! I need to figure out how I can bring a camera with and not destroy it. Suggestions? Looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs! I know I have been MIA for a few months now but my life is still crazy! Missing my blogger peeps and can't wait to see what you have all been up to:)

Happy running, biking, swimming, lifting and surfing! Cheers to you all!

  2. Woo hoo! My next race is the Dirty Dash--similar to the Warrior Dash. I don't plan on bringing a camera, I think you need to talk someone else into coming and being your photographer.

    I read somewhere, don't AVOID the mud, go THROUGH it. Oh, and don't wear your wedding rings!

    Good luck!

  5. Hi Julie,

    I ran the warrior dash last year with a few running friends. We had a great time. We did not worry about time, but just went out there and enjoyed it. It was a blast!.

    I'm sure you will have a blast. The mud was very fun.

  6. Enjoy this. I must say this is one train I have no desire to jump on to. But I will happily read about others doing it.

  7. My fiance just did the Go Commando and it's similar to the Warrior Dash. He'd probably be able to give you advice about getting photos during the race. His blog is: http://waiturun.blogspot.com.

    I'd advise you not to bring your camera because you might lose it in the mud or sand or whatever else they have on the course.

    Have fun!

  9. Hey Julie, hope all is well with you and your family. We need to catch up girlie.

    I was tossing around the idea of doing the Warrior Dash out here in Colorado (with Jill), but my husband's BFF from Chicago will be out here that weekend, so it's out. You will have a GREAT time, it sounds so much fun!

    OH, BTW, congrats on your half marathon time from the last post!

  13. I've had several friends do the Warrior Dash, and love it.

    As far as the camera, grab a disposable! Walgreens can give you a CD of all the images on it for just a few bucks.

    Have fun!

  17. Julie, This sounds like so much fun! You'll have to keep your eyes open for the Little Falls runners, several are doing this one too! Have fun and good luck!

  18. Sweet!! I'm doing the one in Oregon in September and I can't wait. I think our obstacles sound a tad different, yet still very similar.

    I heard from some people that you should bring a disposable waterproof camera if you want one. That way you don't damage your "real" camera. My plans is to get two - one for myself and one for my partner. That way we can each be in photos!

    Have fun!

  19. You will love this race! I did a dash a couple months ago and immediately signed up for another one!

  20. WOW !! I want to do that race now. Sounds brilliant and I'm as envious as hell.
    I talked 2 co workers into entering a small fun run on the weekend with me. I did the 25 km and they signed up for the 5km.
    Not sure if they will ever talk to me again lol.
    Last seen in the gutter with a death rattle.

  25. That race sounds wild. You are the man... er woman for doing it.

    I've had your blog in mind this week as I've been vacationing in Minnesota. Nice weather here compared to Kansas.

  26. That does sound like a lot of fun! I'm glad you aren't doing the race where they shock you- mud sounds fun, electrical shocks do not sound like fun. Glad you are doing well! Hope to see you soon!
