So I was invited to join a team for the Warrior Dash two days before the event. Mind you I have never ever participated in any type of obstacle mud run. I said, sure, why not. After I committed, I started googling the obstacles. I immediately began to freak out. I was so nervous that I wouldn’t be able to complete the obstacles, or would be too scared to even try. I barely slept the night before. The day finally came, and I put on my Batman outfit and told myself I could do this.
I had a great motivator with me, and I cannot thank her enough for inviting me to the event.
As I was completing the obstacles I was honestly amazed with myself. I had not trained at all for the Warrior Dash. My training was Beachbody workouts, including 21 Day Fix, P90X3, and PiYo. I completed this event for fun with no expectations, just fear. In the end, I think I found my calling. I signed up for a Spartan race in two months and am looking for other mud runs to sign up for. I am so thankful for my friend for giving me this opportunity and pushing me to challenge myself. I’m now revamping my workouts to train for the Spartan race.
