This past weekend I completed my second Warrior Dash, first being in Mississippi in April. I am thrilled with the results.
A little over a year ago I learned about Warrior Dash, it’s a 5k race, with multiple obstacles during it. Running a normal 5k has never really interested me, same with any other event where you just run a path that is mostly flat or smooth. These Obstacle Race, or Adventure Race … now that’s interesting.
In December 2011, I figured out that I could and would do the Warrior Dash Mississippi 2012, and started running from time to time. It was just me going off and doing stuff. Then at WD:MS I discovered that my issues is not the WD obstacles, it’s the distance & I was happy I fished, but sad with my time of 57:28.65.
Fast forward to this past weekend. I start out. I hold myself up and don’t burn myself at the beginning. When I cross the finish line I felt good about the result, my wife informed me it was around 46 minutes after the hour – we started in a wave at the top of the hour. So I was sure I was at least 10 minutes quicker.
44:03.40 – my official time is very pleasing to me. The time difference being 13:25.15 less is wonderful.
