Anybody ever done one??? I am SUPER excited about this one b/c my roommate, my bestfriend, and her wife are all going to do it w/ me. Frigging awesome!!! I tried to get some co-workers to join in but I think they're a little scared of it. Not me...I love this stuff!!!

Really excited. Good luck!

Ive been on the fence about it. It looks like an awesome event, but we' re already a little event heavy in July. It looks so cool though...............

That looks exactly like the Maldon Mud Race near my hometown in the UK. It is great, every Boxing Day for charity. I've never done it but people dress up like superheroes and everything, looks like loads of fun!

I'm so excited. My bestfriend is moving back here at the end of this month and we're gonna start training for it. She's always been stick thin regardless of what she eats and doesn't exercise much, so I'm gonna be busting her butt...bwahahahahaha!!!

Can't wait to share pictures...hope those of you who are doing it will post your pictures, too!!!

How'd it go??? Was it a blast??? ;)

I signed up today just in the nick of time. We had decided to do it on Saturday during the 4:30 PM wave. Well, I went to register and it said "0 spots available." The only time slot w/ spots available for Saturday was 6:30 PM and they only had 10 spots left!!! So I rounded up my group real quick and told them all to hurry up and register. Thankfully all 5 of us got registered...woot woot!!! I am super duper excited...can't wait!!!

It was awesome! There was some really severe weather earlier in the day that caused the event to be canceled. the coordinators told everyone that if they wanted, they could run the route but that their times and stuff wouldn't be recorded. my group ran it and omg, it was SO muddy from the 5"+ rainfall that we had just a few hours before. It was SOOOOO much fun, though. I definitely ruined my clothes that I wore. They held the event officially the next day, but I already had plans with family so I wasn't able to attend the official event. :(

I will definitely be doing it again next year. It was absolutely amazing to do it with my group of women. we all felt so empowered afterward.

There's one in August less than 3 miles away from me... Heck, I could walk there! I am thinking of doing it now! When I make it to Onederland, the $50 registration may have to be my reward!!! Have fun Natasha!

I pulled the trigger and signed up. July 16 . My dh is joining me because he's a copycat;). His 50 mile ultra is two weeks later so he has promised to never forgive me if he hurts himself....... I did no persuading truly, he just hates being left out. I think it's going to be a blast.

You might want to check registration before you go through the trouble. I signed up almost a month ago and there were lots of spots left on Sunday but Saturday completely sold out already.

Actually, I just checked the Maryland dash and there's 216 spots available on Saturday still, so you might be good.

Wow...what a BLAST that was!!! Tougher than I expected it to be, but mostly b/c the majority of the running was going UP the mountain through very muddy terrain. The obstacles were challenging, but doable (except the 12 foot wall which I could not climb over, unfortunately, but am RESOLVED to do w/o fail next year). Definitely got muddy and dirty but OMG, it was SO much fun. My legs and knee caps are scratched up and's like a badge of honor, LOL

So without further's my pictures.

This is our group before we got ready to head out. That's me in the back in the pink shirt, my cousin Connie in the cowboy hat, my bestfriend Elizabeth in the other pink shirt, her wife Brandi in the blue tie-dye shirt, and my friend Que in the black tanktop and shorts. _n.jpg

The shuttle ride to the dash. Our driver has lived in the mountains for 27 years and is VERY comfortable driving the roads. 35 - 40 mph going down the mountain. _n.jpg

Our group at the entrance to the Warrior Dash. The extra female standing next to Que is her wife, Spoon. She was our cheerleader and personal photographer, LOL n.jpg

The flames were our starting pistol, LOL _n.jpg

Navigating through muddy tires. _n.jpg

That's me coming over the floating log and that's my cousin, Connie, behind me. _n.jpg

Jumping the flames just before the finish line. _n.jpg

Our team after finishing the dash. _n.jpg

And donating our muddy sneakers to a good cause. n.jpg

I have 180 photos so I just picked some of them to share w/ you. ;)
