Warrior Dash Photo Roundup!

Well, even though my physical activity level usually rivals that of a sloth, I'm not opposed to working out. I've been trying to get into better shape recently because I'll be in the land of skinny bitches in a matter of weeks. I even started doing the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. {Review on that coming soon. Here's a preview: I want to die.}But no matter how much I work out, some things are just outside of my reach- one of those would be the Warrior Dash, which I blogged about on Monday. A 5K complete with obstacles? UM, no thanks. Running is obstacle enough for this chick. I don't need to add in other shit to make it even harder. Yikes! But my Dad & Johanna were all badass and had to prove that what seems impossible to me is in fact, quite possible for others. I spent the whole day snapping photos and trying not to get dirty. You know, because the last place on Earth this girl belongs is at any event with a mud pit. GROSS.

This is my favorite photo of the day- my Dad using my Mom to help him stretch before the race. Now THAT'S love.

Color me impressed! I wouldn't jump over fire if you paid me... Okay that's not true, I'd probably do it for like $100. Let's get real. But still- that shit cray! {I'm allowed to say that and not sound lame because Kanye and I are totally friends.} Not only did everyone in the race NOT get paid for jumping over fire, but they actually PAID to do it!! I just don't understand. And a mud pit complete with barbed wire? Doesn't look like too much fun to me. My hair would probably get caught in the wire and I'd end up ripping my scalp off a la Dee from It's Always Sunny when the gang goes to the Jersey Shore. The moment I realized I was definitely not destined for the Warrior Dash was when we were standing on the side of the mud pit and I yelped because my flip flop slipped and I got mud on my toe... Which was quickly followed by a bug getting caught in my hair and me yelling at my Mom "GET IT OUT OR I'M GOING TO CRY!!!!" Ugh, right? I've accepted my fate as "that girl" you guys should too. It's okay. While Jo & my Dad were off being hardcore, my Mom & I did what any normal human does at a 5K- we drank beer. A-DUH!

If only I could get into shape by drinking beer and watching Netflix. In a perfect world... Anyway, the whole day was total insanity. I couldn't believe how many people were there, willingly subjecting themselves to torture via 5K. CRAZIES! Still, I'm so proud of my Dad & Jo for conquering the beast! Medals well deserved!


  1. Ah, that is adorable! But also: mind blown. FIRE! RAGING RIVERS! SWEATING!

    Is it bad that I think 'sweating' seems like the most unappealing of those options? ;)

  2. to be honest, I hate running. like truly hate it. and no amount of fun mud / fire will change that. I would have been right there with you with beer, toasting them as they crossed the finish line. That being said, I think that it is so awesome that they did this!

  3. Omg this looks crazy! I think I would drown in the mud pit.

  4. Whaaat... Cool, but not for me! Honey, I need more than $100 to jump over fire!

  5. I honestly had to look at the before and after pictures 5 times before I realized that Johanna did not change into a brown shirt and shorts before the race started and was instead covered in massive amounts of mud.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It's lovely hearing from you :)
