"How do you accidentally sign up for something that you paid money for?" was my first question.
Dave Ramsey for life!
Once we got past that I actually looked at the website for Warrior Dash. I immediately said, "Good Luck" and started looking for a buddy to hang out with that day.
But over the next few days, I considered it more and more. Finally, I went ahead and signed up.
1) It's on my bucket list to run a 5K. The Warrior Dash is a little bit over that, so it works perfectly.
2) I hate mud. And the idea of crawling through mud underneath barbed wire scares the heck out of me. I have a lot of true fears (heights, planes, etc), but these obstacles, however scary, probably won't kill me (although there is fire involved).
3) Everyone else I know is doing it. No, seriously, the majority of people I know up here have signed up. My husband, half of his workplace, which is also our church. A lot of my friends at church, and then some people from my work signed up... I mean really, the peer pressure is on if I wanted to be a cool kid!
4) I'm working on losing weight... what better incentive to get in shape than to force myself to do this? I won't back out because I paid to enter!
So there you have it, folks. I'm going to be in the Warrior Dash. It will be, and I quote, the "craziest frickin' day of [my] life." Supposedly. But then again, I am married to Josh Fowler.
On second (third?) thought... I can't jump... and I'm supposed to jump over fire??
