It is ON!
Once again Warriors from all over Michigan assemble to battle to the death as card carrying members of Warrior Nation.
That's right, today is the Warrior Dash, billed as "the craziest frickin' day of your life". In just few short minutes I will depart to defeat the barbarian hordes in Mt. Morris.
For those that have not yet heard of the Warrior Dash it is a 5k trail race...with a bonus obstacle course. Warrior Dashes take place all over the country, and now in Canada too. You can find the details here: www.warriordash.com
I participated last year and it was awesome. So a year ago I registered for today's. For the recap of last year's battle go here: www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
Of course I was also supposed to have already tested for black belt by this point so I could focus on taking on the course 100% without having to fear injury derailing my plans. So today, since my black belt testing is actually NEXT weekend, I think I will not be going all out today. There is a real risk of injury on some of the obstacles if one is not careful or just unlucky and I will be most upset if I get hurt today and cannot test next week.
