It’s over, and can’t be helped, and that’s one consolation, as they always says in Turkey, ven they cuts the wrong man’s head off.

I WAS the Warrior!!

For a beautiful, brilliant, running, jumping, climbing, crawling, soggy, dirty, swampy, muddy, fire-singing moment in time, I was one with all the elements!

WE were one with all the elements. Myself, my sister and her husband got down and dirty and we are so over the WARRIOR DASH!!

We started nervous–didn’t know what to expect–but once we got into the Wave Gate, we were READY!

Just a fun day of goofing around on a 4 mile obstacle course with 2000 of our closest friends!

We didn’t win but we weren’t last and more importantly, we didn’t get HURT!

We got pictures. We got video. We WILL be back next year!

I will post what we have right now and please check back for the video!

Warriors Unite! We kicked extreme ass! See you in 2010!

This was our starting Wave Gate

Fire. Really.

Muddy???

Muddy???

Just a little bit...

Just a little bit...

NOW, I can relax! At least for a few weeks…

July 14, 2009 at 11:24 am (Day to Day, School News) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It is Tuesday. It was my last class for the summer. Final Exam. I stayed up too late on Sunday. Felt like the flu on Monday. My head and body was aching. I felt feverish. Managed to sleep a few more hours last night and go over as much of the material as possible this morning. Wouldn’t have missed today for anything.

Unofficially, I should have an A for the class. Just barely, but it counts. I missed the required amount to keep me above the A-line. I wish I had missed less. I even changed an answer from the right one to the wrong one! DUH. I hate that.

FYI for the future: Usually your first answer is the correct answer.

If I’ve learned anything in these last 3 years it’s to not second guess yourself. And yet, I did. We are not immune.

Anyway, I will keep it in mind for the next semester. 5 weeks, 5 days and counting.

Thanks to all who encouraged and supported me on the first run. Stay with me! I’m going to need you as the long, cold winter sets in!

Next up Warrior Dash! Should seem like a piece of cake–running and jumping–I don’t even have to win!

Now let’s go have some FUN!
