The Warrior Dash in Lake Wales, FL this past weekend was an absolute blast! There is nothing better than running with a team of people with that RIGHT connection!
Getting fit, having fun, and doing this all for a great cause is a huge reason why I am so addicted to these adventure races.
Our awesome team, Team Dynasty, ran during the 11:30am wave and, just like all the other adventure races, when we do this as a team we do not ever run for time (it’s NOT all about that). It’s about getting through it with your team and helping other people along the way.
Isn’t that what life is all about anyways?
It’s crazy to think that just a few short months ago was my first race. I was so nervous to compete and run in the race. I just keep thinking, “I’m not fit enough. I can’t run that far. I’m not strong enough,” or whatever else came to mind in the weeks leading up to the first Tough Mudder.
Now that I’ve done a couple of these, I am addicted – at least it’s a good addiction – and I have planned even more for the coming year. It’s so fun to get outside and get muddy and just have fun with your teammates.
And the free beer at the finish line doesn’t hurt either. Hehe
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year, and beyond, has to hold for me and my fitness and having fun at these races. If you’re ever wanting to do one with a team, reach out to us on Facebook and we’ll be more than glad to have you join us.
The more people, the more fun we have!
