This is how it's described on their website:
Warrior Dash is the ultimate event for thrill-seeking athletes. This running series is held on some of the nation's most demanding and unique terrain. Participants will conquer extreme obstacles and celebrate their feat with music, beer, warrior helmets and muddy shorts.Of course, being the person that I am, I thought "why not do it in costumes?!" After all, I did complete a half marathon with my bff in matching pink/green get-up including tutus!
Not thinking the other two girls would be into dressing up, I mentioned it to one of my friends. To which she responded "Let's do it! Come up with a fun costume and we'll do it!" After thinking long and hard, this is what I came up with...the Candy Cane Girls!
Yes, those are red/white striped thigh highs and candy cane headbands!
I must say the obstacles added to the 5k make it much more difficult than I was expecting. I'm sad to admit that I was sore the next day, really sore. Amazing how adding walls, rusty cars, planks, rivers, tires, fire, and a mud pit will make you tired after only 3.2 miles!
At the end, we could donate our shoes. Warrior Dash cleans and recycles old shoes. As always, it was a little bitter sweet giving these up. My shoes have so much history, but it's nice knowing they went to a good cause!
