We Came…We Saw…We Conquered

…and maybe did a little bit ‘o shopping too.


Who knew that mud slinging and fire jumping would be a good fit for me?!  Amber, Brandy and I did the Warrior Dash on the 10th up in Lake Elsinore.  We made a girls’ day of it.  Amber was sweet enough to bring breakfast and we hit up the outlet malls with purse in hand just before the race.  We found some great deals and cute things.

As for the race, we felt great afterward.  I chattered the poor girls to death and for that I am sorry.  At one point during the race, I was recalling an amazing black truffle cake from The Tree Room(If you are ever in Sundance, I HIGHLY recommend it!)  The gal running behind us commented that she would be fine with a cup of water right now.  Oops! Well, it was a short race – just over 3 miles.  Thirteen obstacles were scattered throughout(wall/car jumping, cargo nets, climbing through pipes, barbed wire, etc.).  We did have to go for a bit of a dip in the lake.   As you can see from the picture, the race included a mud bath.  Boy did we smell amazingly sweet at the end.

We stopped off and did lunch at Chili’s on the way home – talk about just what we needed.  That’s right – I finished my plate.  Ladies thanks for a wonderful day.

    You guys ROCK!!! For clarification purposes only and because visually it’s just great….did you get to clean up before you went to Chili’s or did you walk in all Warrior like and demand meat?!!!! Cute pics! Looks like it was a great day!

    Okay, all I can say is that you are just way cool. All I can think of is, “Ew! Mud! What a mess!” Hahaha. So glad you enjoyed a fun (and healthy, considering the running) day out with the girls!

    @ Cydni, we did in fact clean off, if you include a dip in the green lake as cleaning. We looked cleaner, but probably didn’t smell much better :)
