And it was awesome. This was the weekend of the Delta Dash over in Alabama. About 14 of us, in all various shapes, sizes, and ages...loaded up and made it to Stockton. We suited up in our shirts...slammed some caffeine...and posed for pictures. We even made the Mobile Press Register.
We lined up at the starting gate and I started yelling things about going for the cornucopia of weapons (you know...you got to get inside of people's heads).
At some point I caught up with Heather and Filthy Phil.
She wanted to hold me hand.
She wanted to finish together. SO I mustered up the rest of what I had and grabbed her hand and we finished with an uphill run, jumped over some hay bales, and called it a race.
58 minutes and 30 seconds.
It was a blast.
I am so proud of all of us. "The other Heather" from Defuniak, also known as Sharika Jingles...she had never done any race of any kind...and after only a few weeks of running...finished strong. BoobSweat, real name Natalie (posing in the yellow shirt with Heather above), faceplanted the incline climb and had her hair dressser pull a splinter from her jaw several days later.
It was a challenge for sure. It also illustrated that we better really start training for the Tough Mudder in May bc if 3.7 miles and some hillbilly obstacles whooped our asses...10-12 miles surely will do the job.
Hope all is well my friends! Happy Thursday!
