Warrior Dash and it's a 5k course at Horseshoe Vally with obstacles you have to go through it as you go along, including a fire pit jump and mud pit at the end. What was neat about this race was that it was a first for both hubby and I, where before he had joined in on races I had already done. We hooked up my Dad this weekend to watch the boys and shipped them off from Fri night until Sun morning!! Kid free all weekend...I don't care what we are doing, I call that a romantic weekend away :) RockStar Adventure Race as Team Van Awesome!! Once again shipped the kids off to my Moms this time on the Fri night and headed out early Sat morning on the 3hr drive just to get to the race site. The weather was beautiful and we were in good spirits and excited. This year they changed what happen at the start of the race. So we were given our stage 2 map ahead of time so that we could map out where we wanted to go and what points we were going to collect. 15min before race start they gave us the stage 1 map that we had to complete first and get 2 flags. The first one, one of us had to run a trail and get the red flag in the waist deep water. Hubby looked at me and said, " You can run!" LOL!....once I did that we both had to hop on our bikes and go counter clock wise through a path the get the 2nd flag......now I have run this path before and knew that it was pretty rough going. LOL!! Oh man it was hard and tiring and the race started at 2pm so it was hot out!
