We Finished!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and St. Patrick's Day!  Jason and I are happy to report that we survived Warrior Dash on Saturday!  We had so much fun - the weather was beautiful, we finished the run in under an hour and completed ALL of the obstacles!  There was WAY more mud than I thought there would be, lots of deep water to wade through, and a couple of obstacles (the ropes walls) that I didn't think I would conquer, but I did!  Sidenote: the whole run smelled like horse and cow poo so I'm pretty sure we were running in that too...Jason's advice to me (and now mine to you) is to keep your mouth shut while running since mud/poo was flying everywhere!

Jason certainly could have completed it quicker, but chose to run alongside of me.  It was a great experience for us to do together...we crossed the finish line (and jumped over the fire) hand in hand. 

We are nursing some bruises, scrapes and sore muscles today (and a sunburn for me), but it was all so worth it.  I recommend this run to anyone.  I know Jason and I will do it again next year.  I'm hoping for some great course shots from the professional photographers, but here are a few before and after the race that we snapped.

It looks like I have tan lines from my socks, but trust me, those are just mud lines!  I've never been so dirty and found mud in places mud shouldn't be!
