Update. NOW it’s gonna rain…ratsafratsa…And the Final Warrior Dash post until next years event (or at least sign-up)

It’s like thunder, lightning…the way you love me is frightening…that’s from a song, but the storm is moving in. It’s like the weather was waiting for me to finish running today. “OK, Thunderheads, she’s done. She finally got her lazy butt up and around, send in the clouds and let her rip!” Bastard Atmospheric Conditions!

Anymuddyway…These are the final pictures from that damn little mud camera with the amazing ability to take blurry pictures of hot firefighters but somehow focus in with razor sharp acuity on my ginormous ass going over a wall. (If you wanna see the butt pictures–you gonna have to search the website–I put them in a separate post–Ha!)

Here they are. Thanks A & J!

Before the race. Strolling the course. Posing so bravely.

And we are back…it’s Wednesday afternoon, pre-running post…More Warrior, with updates!

July 22, 2009 at 2:00 pm (Day to Day, Exercise, Pictures, Video, Warrior Dash) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

As I was flipping thru the internet I noticed that the Helmet Cam video is on You Tube now! Thank goodness! I can’t get the other formats to work or convert or whatever people do to make things show up here. So I am posting that here. It’s long, but it gives a really good playback of what we were doing. Makes you wish you were there huh??

I went to my sister’s yesterday to babysit for her and her house full of children, including my own, because this year her birthday NEVER ends!

The hubby went and bought her tickets! Awwww….

It was a secret, she didn’t know she was going to the SOX game AND sitting behind the dugout–so close to the players she could feel their sweat (Eeeww for me, Yay! for her). She’s kind of a fanatic. At any rate, they took, like, 200 pictures of players I couldn’t identify on threat of death if they were standing right in front of me with their jerseys on, much less standing at home plate facing the other way swinging a bat! But whatever…she had a good time. If she sends me any of her favorite pictures I can add them here as kind of a Sox player-sister-tribute thing. So look for that later too!

Now that’s it. Happy Birthday. It’s over! Sheesh…

Also, they got the pictures back from the Mud-Cam and some are really good! Some are really bad too. Two in particular have me going over the Wall with my ass looking like I put two beach balls in my pants! It’s funny but not TOO funny. I confiscated the actual prints and they are currently residing in my fridge and food cabinets with a serious note to myself asking if I REALLY want to eat anything inside these areas of the house?? Maybe I should go have a big glass of water, run around the block, and reconsider eating any kind of solid food for the next few weeks. But I’m waiting for the digital to show up in my e-mail so I can post, so we’ll see if those two make it to daylight…maybe if I get a few subscribers??? Hint, hint. (Pathetic grab for attention!)

How long can I drag out this Warrior Dash to get more hits for my site? At least a few more days!

We have to go hit the trail now. Third day of the new fitness regiment. Mason doesn’t want to–he’s still sore, and Stevie doesn’t really get it yet…so this should be fun! Mommy has to be the bad guy. Exercise is good! In a month or so they’ll thank me!

I will post later with any new pics and such. Stay active!

Warrior Dash Helmet Cam

If this actually works…my sissy, her husband and myself are at the 2:00 mark. Right near the guy with the blood on the horns of his Warrior Helmet. It’s a lovely video of our backs walking toward the start! Then Mike pretty much zooms away from us!

No.

So just GO HERE!

I don’t have enough skills yet to make this work!

Warrior Dash Results plus Shameless Self Promotion (Subscribe To Me! Link is on right…)

As expected, I did not win the Warrior Dash. It’s ok. I kind of figured when I didn’t hear my name called on Saturday. And now looking at my dismal hour plus finish…haha.

Really, it was over an hour. But not because I couldn’t do it. Mostly because I got stuck in an obstacle jam at the jumping Wall (not enough space for all of us to go over in a faster fashion) But I’m not complaining. I don’t really care anyway about the time. The whole thing was a blast!

(Subscribe → )

I’m still finding pics and video on the internet from it. Looking at everyone’s stuff I already found us in a few. I’ll post as we see. We still have one more camera that my brother-in-law took with thru the mud and gunk!

On the Facebook site, you can really see some of the obstacles in other people’s pictures. The Swamp looks particularly gross and muddy, and the Hills look fun even thought they were killer. Up, down, up, down. I put that the Forest Trail Hills were my fav, but those grass hills are a close second!

Well, back to the real world now. I have to go register the kids for school and hit the trail with my son! The road calls.

(Did I mention, subscribing?? Link is over there, top right corner → )

This is the NEW FEATURE post, begging…that I typed last night while most normal people were sleeping. Didn’t want you to miss it! And you wouldn’t…if…??? And that’s all I’ll say.

Here is another random phone camera pic because I like to have them on the site!
