On may 10th, I will be running Warrior Dash.
I fully expect it to kick my rear. I had my baby Jan. 31st, spent a week with him in the hospital just after I was released back to exercise (c-section), and have generally not been training like I should. Or eating right. Or sleeping well.
New baby, you know?
All of that being said, I am going to run it anyways. I will go through mud, barbed wire, mud, obstacles, mud, fire, and mud. I will be filthy, and sore, and probably love every minute of it.
I am signed up to be a St. Jude warrior- meaning I am raising money for St. Jude's, the children's cancer research institute. You know, the one where no one gets a bill, which is awesome because if you have to be there things suck enough without thinking about how you will pay for it. My personal goal is $300, and to finish the race. Sure, it would be easy to say "no, I'm not ready, not this year, I'm not in shape, I don't have time, blah blah..."
But I said I would do it. I will raise money. I will finish the race. I will prance around in my fuzzy viking helmet!
Who knows, maybe by next year I can raise $1000 and enter the competitive leg. One thing at a time, though =P
Please consider donating to help the children and families at St. Jude, or share the link if you are not able to. I promise pictures of me covered in mud when this is all over.
