Warrior Dash PA 2011

This past Sunday was the Warrior Dash in Albrightsville PA.  This was my first time doing to the Dash and I must say, it will now be an annual event!  I highly recommend getting to one if your able.
Pre race, nice and clean.


It was in PA remember.

Junk yard and tires.

Spidermaned it through the mud, so ended up not as muddy as others.

Post race pic at the sign.

Time for a shower.  Man was that water cold!

Wet, cold, happy and showing off the new necklace.

After a cold shower and some dry clothes, just had to put the helmet on :)  Not sure what that funky expression is though.

All in all a great experience and had a blast.  See you next year!

Guitar Logo

Les Paul's Birthday by Google

Google always has interesting images for their logo, or almost always.  Todays is a special one.  I'm continuing to learn to play the guitar and getting better as time goes on.  Some day I would like to be part of a worship team at church.  So when I hit Googles page today and saw the image (and it's interactive ... Go play!), I thought it was one of the better ones, probably because it's closer to my heart, but it is pretty cool.

It's "That" kind of Friday!

So it hasn't been too often that we've seen the sun this much in the past couple weeks with all the rain that we've had, so I figured it was "That" kind of Friday!

Juneathon 2011 - 2 June pt. 2

Went out for another run after work.  I lead a study going on right now at our church called Run for God.  So we get together with the students so that we can run together as a group and support one another.  Had a running group last night and did a couple laps around a local military museum.  Great day to run with the weather!  Our group did about 2.5 miles in 25 minutes.  It's a 12 week program to get them up to a point that they can run a 5k.  Monday will be the start of week 8 for them, so we're almost there.

2nd run: http://www.runningfreeonline.com/act/565642

I don't know that it makes up for missing the 1st, but have logged two so far.  We'll see if I can keep up now.

Juneathon 2011 - 2 June

So here it is, June 2.  I heard about Juneathon yesterday and didn't leave myself time to do anything so now I'm a day behind.  But here is a link to todays run: http://www.runningfreeonline.com/act/564996

This isn't much of a blog post, but today is pretty busy as well so it will have to do for now.  I'll try and work on this more so they are more wordy :)

Warrior Dash 2011

So the Warrior Dash in coming up soon.  June 11th and 12th.  We are signed up for the 3:30PM wave on June 12th.  This will be the first time that we've been to the WD and it should be a blast!  I've heard nothing but good things about it from people that have been to it before, and it's something that I've been looking forward to.

Warrior Dash

For those that don't know, it's a 3.5 mile obstacle course.  The website shows the different locations and the obstacles at those locations.  You get a shirt, fuzzy viking helmet, medal and a free beer!


  1. So the first obstacle is Crusader's Castle, doesn't sound too hard, navigate your way through, we'll see how easy that is :)
  2. Next up is Blackout, looks like a tube with a covering on the end so it's dark.  So, uh, what's in the tube? ;)
  3. Teetering Traverse is next, looks like balance beams, but over what? is the question
  4. Barricade Breakdown, over top of walls and under barbed wire
  5. Tunnels of Terror, nuf said
  6. Arachnophobia, tangling ropes
  7. Deadweight Drifter, waist high water and up over logs
  8. Rio Run, running down a river
  9. Slithering Swamp, unknown murky waters
  10. Great warrior wall, scale the massive blockade
  11. Road rage, scrap yard time
  12. Cargo Climb, cargo nets
  13. Warrior roast, jump over fire
  14. Muddy Mayhem, crawl under barbed wire

So all that water, then you hit the mud at the finish :)  Sounds like fun!

We'll see how it goes and report back with a recap.

Some locals just completed the Tough Mudder, not sure we'll get to that level or not, but may be something to keep in mind.
