Gladiator Rock N' Run - have you done it?
Monday, October 17, 2011
so brilliant me decided to sign up for the gladiator Rock N' Run and I'm scared! Yes, I am not afraid to admit that I'm an idiot and I am seriously second guessing my ability to complete this race without a broken bone, pulled muscle or some other tragedy. I'm having nightmares, I am spending my waking moments fretting and fussing and yet I have this unexplainable desire to compete in this race, if only to just say I completed it.
check it out - you'll see why I'm a scaredy cat. I read an update they sent the other day to us "registered" for the race already that said they had great news. Because of the location here in Seattle/Kent, they were able to ADD a few obstacles, so now there will be 16 or 17 obstacles instead of the normal 12 -14 - GREAT, thanks, just what I needed to freak me out a little more....watch the video on the link, you'll see...I'm petrified.
So, I need someone to tell me that they have done one of these races - whether it's the Gladiator one or a similar obstacle course type 5K - tell me you lived, tell me it sucked, but it's doable, tell me I'll be fine, tell me something to help me stop freaking out....oh yeah and tell me what's good to wear in 50 degree weather, probably raining and will hold up ok while slithering through the mud and jumping over flames.
