i don't know how or why i never blogged about this, but as i was perusing my "to blog" list,
(please tell me you have one of those too!)
i noticed that i still hadn't blogged about our fun warrior dash!
this was way back in april or may, before i found out we were even pregnant. actually, that was one of my first clues that i might be pregnant, because pre-dash i had eaten a delicious bowl of tomato and cucumbers, and post-dash, the thought of eating that made me want to vomit.
pregnancy symptom #1.
anywho, amy had told me about the wd in seattle and when i saw it was coming to so. md., we signed right up! our friend, david, was running in our exact race (although much, much, much faster than we, or i should probably say i), so laura got a few pics of us running.
my face here is saying "i will do a lot of crazy things, but i don't think i'll be running through fire today, thankyouverymuch."
after the fire, we got to swim through a mud pit.
so gross, but kinda fun too.
my pants were so heavy with mud that they were having a hard time staying up.
we even had mud in our teeth!
it was a 3.1 (i think!) mile course and they had something like 13 obstacles.
stuff like climbing walls (military style), hay hills, and the aforementioned mud pit and fire walk.
the warriors with david.
matt and i had decided we would run together, cause i think i thought i could keep up better. but it must have been the pregnancy fatigue ;) already kicking in that slowed me down. ;)
after the race, he said "maybe next year we'll just meet up at the finish line."
and being the nice wife that i am, i agreed. :)
they had water trucks with like 5 people on top spraying participants "clean."
so here we were all fresh and ready to go. ;)
and with our warrior hats, no less.
and my genius after dash shoes. i was slipping and sliding all over the place!
when we got home we took the longest and nicest shower ever!
the kids are all excited to do it next year, but i think i'll be sitting it out with the babe in arms and the little girlies, mama warrior style. :)
