Badass Dash | Race 9 of 14 for 2014

I'm officially signed up fro 12 races through September and I'm sure I'll find 2 more to sign up for before the end of the year.  I am kinda surprised at how fast it's going and how easily it's been finding races!  Thank goodness for living social & groupon deals! LOL

The Badass Dash is a 7K obstacle course race with about 30 obstacles throughout the course.  My hubby and I signed up through a great Living Social deal and although I had already ran the race last year with my sister, he hadn't ran it, so I figured it'd be fun to run it together.  We also met up with some other running group friends when we got there.  Also, some Camp Rhino peeps who'd already ran elite heat decided to run it again for fun with us, now they're badass!!  Having them run with us was a blast and helped push us through the tough parts!  The course had a ton of stairs, some water and mud obstacles, tunnel crawl, over and under hurdles, cargo nets and walls to climb.  Compared to last year's race, I think the obstacles were a bit more challenging, so that was a tun of fun!   There were no race bibs, but they did provide you with a timing chip at packet pickup along with a tech race shirt.  The end of the race had the regular post-race goodies - bananas, orange slices, water, and a sports drink.  Oh and let's not forget the beer!  LOL :) 

Yup, I ended up a little muddy and a few battle scars! But, that's part of the fun!

Have you done any obstacle course races? Do you love or hate them?  I'd love to hear from you! xo
