One of my least favorite aspects of running is that its not something I can do with my family. Well, I guess I can, but my jogging strollers wheel was destroyed by sandburrs and hasnt been fixed yet so that takes the boys out. Stinkerbell can make it .16 miles before freaking out about it being to cold. And Shawn, well, he could do it but is his words "doesnt want to".
My example: Warrior Dash is coming to Nebraska!!! Im soooo freakin excited. I have wanted to do a Warrior Dash since I first heard about them a few years ago but the closest one was in either Southern Colorado or Kansas City. Now, this year, we are getting ein an obscure town I have never heard about waaaay off in the Eastern part of the state might well be Iowa. Its June 9th....life will have slowed down a bit by then.....calving will be done, brandings done, haying shouldnt have started yet so he doenst have the "work" excuse to not run.
Warrior dash is 3.3 mile mud run with obstacle courses....mud pits, rope courses, fire pits yes fire pits....and its only 3.3 miles. I know to someone who isnt a runner, 3.3 miles sounds like a marathon but really....when you toss in 10 obstacle courses, I'm willing to bet 3.3 goes by pretty darn fast. Plus, FREE BEER at the finish line. What about that doesnt sound awesome?? Gotta love races with beer sponsors!!!
According to my husband....none of it. I even tried the "your just scared your wife will school you" and that didnt get a flicker of interest. So even though we hunt together and snowmobile together. Really...he can totally do it. He can scamper through the hills after critters, he can run a Warrior Dash. Apparently running together isnt going to happen. Not gonna lie...that bums me out. Since he doesnt run with me, he is the obvious
Ok, that last part isnt entirely true....I have an AMAZING group of
Im not totally giving in yet.....I may sign him up, throw him in the car and pretend we are going to the Casino in Iowa, with a stop along the way to run the Warrior Dash. He might
