|My knee two days after the race.|

I ran another Warrior Dash race. This time I went with my Cousin Leigh. We had a lot of fun. The course was a little more difficult than the one I ran in November. The obstacles were: run through waist high water, run through empty wooden buildings, climb over wrecked cars, climb over and under wooden barricades, scale a huge wall, walk across some up and down planks, run through a ton of tires, crawl through tangled bungee cords stretched between several trees, crawl through a long pitch-black tunnel on your knees, crawl across raised nets, climb up and over a cargo net, climb up and over giant stacked bales of hay, wade through deep water and climb over/under 6 floating logs (I went over not under), leap over two lines of fire, and finish off the race by crawling under barbed wire through a mud pit. I finished one minute slower than the race I ran in November. Not bad considering I was on antibiotics and a steroid dose pack to cure my sinus infection and bronchitis. I only had one bad coughing fit during the entire 3.26 miles of the race. I love these races. I am doing another one, Crusader Course, in June. My mom said she might even sign up to run the Warrior Dash with me in November this year.
