I am doing my second one in September. I did it last September with a group of girlfriends, and we had a blast! This year we are all going back with our husbands, because they were all jealous that they weren't doing it with us. I can't wait!

The advice I can give is also to stay with someone- sometimes you'll need a boost, both physically and mentally. Run it to have fun- and not for a 5K time. Also, I am glad that I worked on my upper body strength all last summer- it definitely helped. I found many of the obstacles used a ton of upper body strength to pull/lift myself over things.

And also, be careful and stay safe. My friend fell off one of the obstacles and broke her ankle. It's a risk we take, and muddy/slippery trails and obstacles are tricky. Take your time and make sure you always have a solid grip and solid footing before moving on.

Good luck, and have a blast!

I did the Warrior Dash last year. It was super fun and I consider it one of my greatest accomplishments thus far. My advice: run it with a friend and don't leave each other's side. Don't worry about your race time either. It's all about having fun!

I wrote a blog about it if you're interested.

I'm doing my first one on April 13 - Warrior Dash in Phoenix. It's been a great motivator for me to keep training/working out daily for the past 6 weeks. Totally looking forward to it!

Well I might be cray cray but I signed up to do a warrior dash (aka mud run). I'm SO excited and SO nervous! LOL. Have any of you participated in one of these? Suggestions? Comments?
