I'm going to be a Rugged Maniac

Thursday, May 23, 2013

'A' asked me if I want to do the Rugged Maniac 5k obstacle course that will be coming to Phoenix in November. He showed me a video from it. And. It. Looks. Awesome!! I signed up today and am so excited to have something to motivate me to kick some butt in 6 months!!

I'll admit, it's a little scary. There are events that make me nervous. Some obstacles are underground. Some are 12 feet above ground. I'm nervous I won't successfully traverse all of the obstacles on my own. Luckily, 'A' will be there. He promised we're in it together and no one will get left behind. That makes me feel better, knowing I've got my PIC (partner in crime) out there with me.

Time to work on arm strength exercises, core work, endurance, teamwork. It's getting hot here in AZ, so that'll make me push a bit harder and sweat a little more.

I'm excited!!

If you want to read more about it or see if it's coming to a city near you, check out:

The video is awesome and got my heart pumping! And the pictures are so fun!

And soon, that'll be me!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!

    With A at your side and your winning attitude, there is no way you will not conquer this.

    Good for you! You must be a glutton for punishment! I actually thought about doing the Spartan Race or Warrior Dash but the costs is so expensive. Also the warrior dash has a rope bridge you have to traverse over a ravine and I am deathly afraid od bridges. But I would love to do a crazy race that pushes you to the limits. And this gives you something to train for which will keep you on track. Good luck!

    You can do it an dhey you've got a partner in crime, lol. It looks similar to the Warrior Dash that I'll be doing in 7 weeks which is my first race period and an obstacle course race to boot - uh oh. . . .

    Sounds fun! I know what you mean--I've always been a bit intimidated by mudruns, obstacle courses, etc. I did a women's mudrun and it was SO MUCH FUN! Good to get outside of your comfort zone and do something that stretches you a little! Or a lot!

Good that you will be together.

Have a great time! Kick some butt! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good luck with this challenge. I think it is pretty cool that you and "A" are doing it together. I know a couple who did something similar call the Warrior Games. It is not for the week of heart or body emoticon
