great Warrior Dash Oh 3.1 mi 00:49 15:48 pace

Such a fun race... we decided to run together as a group and have fun rathar than compete... it was sure worth it...
the muddy hills were gnarly-- i should have done more hill repeats to train :)
I was proud that my upper body strength is getting so strong-- i was able to hurl myself over those obstacles really well ! I definitely recommend this race to everyone.

I fell a lot and my legs are all kind of scraped up... battle wounds!!

but, today I noticed there is something else...some rash..maybe a poison ivy type of thing? i forgot how allergic I am to that crap...

anyone have any remedies on getting rid of it quickly?

    Sounds like you had a blast. I think just having fun and not competing is the way to go especially if you're doing it with a group. Nice job! I want that hat!

    Sounds fun and intense!! Can't wait to do mine in July. :) No ideas about the rash, maybe an oatmeal bath? Whatever it is, I hope it clears up quickly!

    I'm thinking about doing hellrun too. Looks similar except maybe not as hilly (?).

    Fun times. You were smart. I made the mistake of running it for time, and while I finished in the top 15 of 2,000 women, I also tore my achilles. Next time I'm running it just for fun!

    We did the same thing, we didn't compete, we just took it slow and waited for each other after each obstacle, so much more fun that way. I hope the rash goes away soon!
