Future Warrior Dasher

Bored with running marathons, going to the gym, and other routine fitness activities? Why not train to be a warrior? There are two Warrior Dash races being held in the Chicago area this year: one in  Channahon, Illinois and one in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin.

What is a Warrior Dash? Kind of like a cross between an Ironman and boot camp. From the website, the description is this A mud-crawling, fire-leaping, extreme run from hell (really gets you interested with that marketing pitch, right?). This fierce running series is held on the most challenging terrain across the globe. Warriors conquer extreme obstacles, test their limits and celebrate with ass-kick music, beer and warrior helmets.

I assume the 300 warrior spray painted abs are optional. Giving out beer to extreme athletes after a race is odd to me considering that alcohol is so dehydrating. But hey, for those that imbibe after working out: FREE BEER. And can’t beat those snappy horned warrior helmets-race in ’em if you want. It’s allowed!

Note: I signed up myself for the September Warrior Dash in the Wisconsin! I will let you know how it goes. (And hopefully will be able to share some great pics too!)
