{Warrior Dash: Roanoke, TX}

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Tim and I had so much fun during last year's Warrior Dash that we couldn't wait to do it again this year.


Because of my recent injuries I had the unique role being our team's marsupial (Dr.'s orders), which meant I got to hold things and take pictures. Saturday morning Husband looked like this. Can you believe it was only 54°?


After realizing I'd have the opportunity to take photos like this one I didn't mind being on the sidelines. This was about the same time Husband yelled for orange peels and a Capri Sun at the finish.


Tim was able to carry our waterproof camera with him and capture some of the course. They ran through rivers ...


Jumped over tires ...


Climbed on cargo nets ...


Ran over cars ...


Got tangled in wire ...


Jumped over fire ...


And climbed through mud ...


All before crossing the finish line soaking wet.


Maybe he thought he was R. Kelly? Or perhaps Kate Winslet?


Of course, our team wanted to pay tribute to the blog by celebrating FPF a little early this week.


One thing I love about the Warrior Dash is that they take our dirty sneaks, clean them up, and donate them to kiddo's all over the world. Pretty awesome.


Last year Tim hung our medals on our front door to remind me how brave I am. Can you guess where this year's hardware is hanging?


If you ever get the chance to participate in the Warrior Dash we highly recommend adding it to your bucket list. You won't regret it. Just check out their website and see if there's a race location near you!

Already looking forward to next year!

I ran it last year and had an absolute blast! Too bad I'm broke this year and can't afford it, but AWESOME pictures! So glad they have this event all over the states.

So I am all registered for the one in Michigan in July, but since registering I am pregnant so...maybe next year.

So awesome! I am wondering if I can swing the one that's here at the end of the month. Looks like too much fun!

OH MY GOSH! I was at Warrior Dash in Roanoke this year, but on SUNDAY. Curses for missing each other by a day (okay, and several waves of people, but whatevs). And you're right, it's a total blast! Even for people like me who are not, how do you say, runners? Athletic? Athletic? All of the above? Anyway, love all y'all's pictures and I already can't wait for Warrior Dash 2012! :)

That looks amazing! I went to the site but the So Cal race was April 2-3. Darn! My husband and I would love to do something like that! I would say for sure next year but I think I just might be growing baby #2 around that time. If not, I'm there!

My little brother is participating in a Warrior Dash in Charlotte, NC and I was so excited to tell him I knew what it was (thanks to this blog)!

I'm signed up for the Warrior Dash in the Rocky Mountains, baby, in late August! Yep, the thought of running an obstacle course at altitude scares the begeezus outta me. Goal is to finish with minimal injury :) and of course to be very badass.

hold me.

any advice? tips? what NOT to do? xoxo

I just read about this for the first time and I think it is the coolest thing!!! Thanks for posting the pictures.

Good effort Tim! Makes our walking a 5K for Breast Cancer Research really boring lol. Then again I get to hang out with my Mum for like a whole hour just walking about the weather and the people we see and things like that lol. (Except next year I'm running it - bring it on!)

How fun would that be, I looked on the warrior web site & there is a run in Ontario in July. I am going to round up the troops & join in the fun.

Colleen said...

Oh this looks sooo fun! I might have to do the Ohio race now...

mel, warrior dash advice: don't wear anything you wouldn't mind leaving there or throwing away. buy/borrow a waterproof camera (you won't regret it). race to complete, not compete. it's more fun that way. recruit friends to do it with you. run the earliest heat on the first day. don't forget your id. bring a change of clothes and wet wipes to get mud out of your ears. if you're feeling brave wear a costume. and lastly, train for a 5k. you'll enjoy the race so much more if you're somewhat in shape. xoxo!

This look amazing!!! I would love to do this. It would make running seem so much more fun. :)

Kudos, Mr.! Warriot Dash remains one of my faves, though your course looks much more awesome. It's hard to find good outdoorsy mess in SoCal, but it doesn't stop me from trying. I'll have to head back to Warriot Dash next year. 0/ <--*high five**

Thanks, TL! Can't wait to blog about this later this summer and hopefully it will be as much fun as you guys make it look.
