I did it Summer 2011 in Whistler, BC. I was surprised when I saw the start of the race course: Up a huge mountain for about the first mile (ran until I couldn't then hiked). I'm 47 and wasn't in great shape but it was fun and challenging and I did it in one hour. You'll be fine if you already work out. This team seems to be for 2011 dasher so I might try to start a new one.

A bunch of my friends have signed up for the Warrior Dash in VA on September 29th and I've decided to give it a shot. I've always wanted to do something like Warrior Dash and what better time than now?
Fitness level: I wouldn't say I'm at rock bottom, but I'm pretty darn close. I go to Kung Fu classes for 60 minutes three nights a week. My strength is getting a little better thanks to knuckle push ups, but my cardio is still lacking quite a bit. My goal is to complete the C25K program before the race and improve my upper body strength.
Any advice from you experienced Warriors would be greatly appreciated - especially with training. What should I focus on and should I be worried that I signed up for something like this when I'm out of shape?
