    No, I wanted to last year but I couldn't. A handful of my friends did it though! They said it was real fun. You are running through water, climbing shit, jumping over fiery logs. Sounds really fun.

    I used to love obstacle courses like this in the military. Did them all the time, often voluntarily on my own, one of the best ways to prepare for my annual PT test, which I would then MAX. We did similar sets of obstacles, some different, some not at all like these, but just as tough or tougher, minus the media moments.

    And guess what? I would come in first! And get plaques for it! The truth is these courses favor small, light, fast, strong & agile guys like I was. Big, heavy, muscle-bound brutes haven't got a chance. The guys who are great as American football linebackers just fail on stuff like this.

    I could fly over a course like this. And did.

    But "Warrior" my ass. A bunch of pretenders. To earn the name warrior you do a lot more than cavort around outdoors. Ask any US Marine, or anyone who has worn the uniform of their country. Warriors indeed! icon_razz.gif

    They are pushing this at my gym as well..
    It is intriguing.. But at 48 I really dont know, I am super competitive and would die before I lost..
    I would like to chat more about it though, what have you done to train for it ?

    Yup. Did the Catskill course last year. The obstacles are not difficult... it's really a 5K on steroids. Try to get an early start time since the obstacles can back up a bit. I'm doing the Tough Mudder at Mt. Snow this year in addition to The Dash. Looks like fun!
