Hello HEthens! I’ve signed up for the Warrior Dash this upcoming year!
What is the Warrior Dash you might be wondering? Well it’s a 5k race that also includes several obstacle courses throughout the race. At the end of the event there is a big celebration with live bands, food, and beer, in fact you get one free beer as you cross the finish line, although I’m not sure if I will want it after the race. Must be 21 for the free beer, but not to enter the race.
I’ve also signed up to be a St. Jude Warrior, what this means is that I also run the race to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by finding sponsors to donate. I hate to be that guy, but if you are willing to visit my page and donate it would be appreciated. Any amount can help. https://waystohelp.stjude.org/sjVPortal/public/displayUserPage.do?programId=2252&userId=881601&eventId=333041
I will be running on August 24, 2013 @ 12:30pm in Pennsylvania. I encourage any other HEthens to sign up as well. There are several events in different areas, but if you are nearby and can make it to the Pennsylvania event it would be nice to meet some fellow HEthens.
You can visit http://www.warriordash.com/ for more information about the event.
This is the first time I’m doing anything like this. I wanted to do it more for fun than for the competition aspect and doing it for St. Jude is also an added bonus that will help motivate me. I figured this would also help motivate me into getting into better shape, So If anyone has any tips for long distance running and any kind of training that would be appreciated as well.
