Warrior Dash 2011

It isn't very often that my four sisters and I are all together but this year we decided we would have a girls weekend and run the Warrior Dash in Mt. Morris, MI. On Saturday night we stayed in a hotel (all minus Kendra) and went out for our "4th" meal of the day and did a little shopping.  It was so nice to have some girl talk and to be able to bond with my sisters again!

On Sunday morning we did some more shopping and then wound up at Walmart (a place that I try to avoid) and spent about an hour there trying to find matching shirts for all of us.  We went in and out of the store probably 8 times and then we finally found shirts that would work for all of us!  When we all get together is a fun time but we tend to cause a scene!

We got to the race early, did a little dancing around, did not drink enough water, and then decided to line up for our heat early as to not get stuck in the back of the wave.  The race was AMAZING!  It was full of running, jumping over cars, rock walls, dark tunnels, mud, fire and MORE mud!  The running was the hardest part because it was 4:30 in the afternoon and it was 96 outside with NO breeze.

I am so glad that I got to spend this time with Tori, Kendra, Taite and Kinsey and am looking forward to running it next year (I'll be more prepared for the race next time!).  I wish we could get together more often but I am thankful for the times that we are able to have; there is never a dull moment!

We are going to be cleaning mud off our bodies for the next month!
