Warrior Dash

This past week has been on the busy side in our household. Perhaps we're overcommitting, but I'd like to think that we're just trying to suck every drop out of summer before we start school on Monday.

Last Sunday we took a little trip up to Copper Mountain for a race. Thankfully this race was just a 5k, but with a twist. I'm sure many of you have heard of the Warrior Dash, and let me tell you... if you haven't done it, you should.

It was Jon's first race EVER!

Kimmy, Jon, and I started our race while Kimmy's hubby Dave took over the photography.

He captured some interesting people

What we had to look forward too

Look at those weirdo's group stretching

There's always got to be that one guy, unfortunately for us there were a group of them.

Since we really didn't know the course David unfortunately missed some of the obstacles and our swim through the mud

While Kimmy and I were leaping fire a security guard was yelling at Dave so he wasn't able to get our leap over the fire

But look at those faces of determination

Jon leaping his way through.

around mile 1 Jon told Kimmy and I to make our way forward, but he was a trooper and came in about 7 minutes behind us.

We had a photo shoot while we waited


So... it turns out that Jon flagged us on because he had broken his toe during the first mile!

He made it through the last two miles and still finished strong!

I could NOT be more PROUD of him for sticking it out!

And apparently I think this toe is on the ground somewhere else...

Mark doesn't like to get dirty...

Jon's kind of double fistin'

Turkey legging it up


Our warrior faces

Just love these two :)

Kimmy, thanks for running it with us. Dave thanks for the photography skills, and Mark... thanks for partaking in a turkey leg :)
