I am warrior, hear me roar!

Last week my family came to visit and we went to Whistler. My dad brother and I did the Warrior Dash, a crazy 3 mile obstacle course on Blackcomb. We had a lot of fun during the event, and my dad and brother ended up taking home trophies for placing top 3 in their age categories (60-64, and 14-19 respectively). So happy that they came out for the event. Next year my momma is pumped to do it with us and hopefully my brother Em and come too. I can’t wait to do it again.

The first mile of the course was basically a jog uphill and turned my lungs upside down, the obstacles weren’t too hard or dangerous, but added a lot of fun to the course. My dad carried a waterproof camera through the course and went much slower than he needed to in order to take pictures of me running the event (what a sweetheart!)

I did the race dressed up as black swan, wearing a black dress with a tulle bottom… for the first mile I regretted my wardrobe choice itchy, sweaty, hot not my favorite things – also we were in a midday heat so the sun was blasting us, and I was severely under-hydrated and didn’t eat enough pre-race. I hit a groove though around mile 2 and had a great time doing the race with my family!
