We had an absolute blast at the 2015 Warrior Dash in Budds Creek, MD. I am really glad that I trained for it; otherwise, I don’t think I would have been able to run all the hills. And there were a LOT of hills!
A couple Lessons Learned:
- Next time, we need to get there a lot earlier. I didn’t anticipate the problems we had parking and then the long walk to registration. We were scrambling to get to the starting line — I felt like I had already run a 5K!
- Getting an early run time is smart. By the time we were leaving, it was getting hot and steamy. I’ll bet the mud pits were pretty gross by then.
- Sunscreen. ‘Nuff said.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
- Fundraising for St. Jude’s was smart! The private showers (while small) were wonderful. Definitely, bring your own soap/shampoo/body wash because they don’t give you much!
Here are some pictures — I’m not sure why they didn’t have any of Adam. And I couldn’t find the three of us posing afterwards. 🙁
