I'm registered for the Warrior Dash on Saturday afternoon. I've never been into running or jogging, or much exercise in general --- but this just looked like too much fun!

I used Spark People for a few years, but just returned to the site after about a two year absence. I originally started at over 310 lbs, and eventually made it to 189 but have slowly gone back up a bit over the past couple years. The Warrior Dash has definitely been a bit of inspiration to get back to tracking my food and exercising again.

My friend and I will be participating as Luchadores (Mexican Wrestlers) for the Dash, so keep an eye out if you're there!

@Platsuzie: I like the idea of going and cheering others on. It also will give a chance to see what the course is really like.

This sounds like some challenging fun! Thinking about putting it on the calendar for next year. I wonder how tough each segment is

The 10 am time slot on Saturday is open. The event is in North Plains, off 26W past Hillsboro but before Vernonia exit. Wanna register as a group and "tough this out as Sparkies?" And see if we can get a group discount? Cost is now $65.00 (advance registration) plus $6.00/process fee. (Includes tall fur Viking hat, with horn, of course and a t-shirt.)

If interest warrants I'll check with the organizer about the a group discount. Just reply "committed, here and I'll get some idea of the size of group we may become.

Chuck,
Thanks for posting about the Warrior Dash! This could be the beginning of "Spark Oregon" getting together for awesome times with similar goals.

Two time slots, on Saturday, Sept. 10th, are already full.

You can go at any pace so you don't have to weigh less than 250 (my friend and her hubby don't) and they had a great time. The course does look challenging. At the very end there was fire to jump over and some just couldn't overcome that last event. Check out the site: mud crawl, cliff repel, water log push, climb, etc. definitely an experience not to forget.

Would be fun to meet other Oregon Sparkies there. Even if we just watch this year and participate next :-).

I also wanted to get OR Sparkies together for a bike ride around Hagg Lake (this summer) but didn't get any interest when I posted a few months ago.

I'm going to go. Shared the event with my son-in-law last year but no reply. He's into iron man events but I thought this would be "fun" for him. My girl friend and her husband went last year and they are going again. I understand the Warrior Dash filled in May or June 2010 and is even better known now.

This is great! I'm going to consider it. Looks like more fun than just a plain old 5k run. thanks.
