Fill In The Blanks – Warrior Dash Whistler

This is originally from whistlerisawesome.com and I am blatantly stealing it!

**********************************************************************************

The night before Whistler’s first Warrior Dash I felt energized.  I prepared for the task at hand by aimlessly driving around looking for cheap overnight parking and getting drunk with friends until 3am.

It was important to grab old runners and remember to pack my sunscreen before the big day, August 6. After I completed my preparations, I fell into bed and slept like the dead.  I was ready for action.

Saturday morning dawned bright and early – too early.   First I ate my oatmeal and moved the car to the free lot. Then it was off to the race.

When I got there I saw my friends Dirte, Rockstar, Shagger, Hanky, Panky, Sparkling, Awesome, Achy, Muddy Terror, Crampy, Sassy, Allstar, Special-T, Gina, Ruby, Dan, Bill, Dave and Christine.  I was glad I was wearing my Tipsy t-shirt. After I saw what they were wearing I knew I was going to need all the new costumes I could get.

We all gathered at the starting line and I noticed the host of the local morning news. Oh yes, this was going to be interesting. And then we were off!

Everyone around me was cheering for the winner of the first wave and gawking at the hill. I decided the only thing I could do was try not to pee myself.

When I came to the first obstacle I thought I was going to do okay.  It was so the right height.  Finishing that section was a relief but then I saw the bruise I gave myself.

I decided to try not to roll down the hill before I tackled this next obstacle.  The dark tunnel loomed large and in charge but I knew I just had to avoid crawling over another warrior.  That was tough but the hardest part of the race, by far, was the Hill of Character

The best part of the race was when I was running downhill!

Finally, it was all over and I could see the finish line.  I whooped I’m bleeding!” with mild bewilderment. I survived the Warrior Dash! And now, it was time to get my medal and warm fruit, let the mud dry, cheer on my friends and give Colin my free beer.  Off to results tent I skipped!

To anyone who asks, I will tell them the Warrior Dash is a great way to get to know your friends and a reason to party And next year I will bring my warrior hill-training for sure!

    I had friends that did the Warrior Dash near Toronto, I didn't realize there was one in Whistler. Maybe I'll see you there next year!
