I haven't posted since my race last weekend! I also pretty much took the week off from running ;) I plan to get together a training schedule to I get back on track, but whats one week!

In other news, this Saturday a big group of us drove down to the So Cal Warrior Dash! Reena(REENA711),   Kelly(SILYSTARRFISH), and Melissa(M525964703) from the boards all met there for the run (along with many of my friends)! It was an absolutely amazing event!

Some pictures will be added later (Finish line and Warrior Roast)... But you can see what a blast it was! It was more challenging than Nor Cal Dash in October, more obstacles and more challenging obstacles. It was also nice to have the lake for washing, we got MUCH cleaner (other than the bacteria in the lake we had to sign a waiver about). The whole weekend was a blast, and I declare a success! 

**Suggestion to future Dashkateers, pack sunscreen and USE it, OUCH!**


  1. oh, is that what the waiver said?? LOL i didnt even read it.

    and LOL at me passing the finish line by myself, hahaha.

    awesome post! im gonna write about it as soon as i get the pics from marlins camera :)

    ps it was nice meeting you and sorry we kinda bailed at the end but we didn't want to stand in that beer line LOL

  2. You too Reena! No big deal about leaving, it was chaotic, no places to sit, the food wasn't too great. Whatevs, we went to the car and drank ;)

    So glad you guys came out! I totally stole the finish line pic from you because my camera was jammed with mud at that point and stopped working, lol!

  3. haha awesome, but i am now famous on your blog. ;) yeah, the food was bad, i was seriously having a meltdown about the bbq beef sandwich that had NO bbq sauce on it, thank goodness Marlin went over there and discovered the bbq sauce you had to add on yourself. lol. anyway we should do more runs like this.. i'm sure there's more out there!! most fun race ever!
