Although I do have a MAJOR war wound, surrounded my little other ones, my heart is still beating, my blood is still flowing, and I'm still walking....just with a temporary pimp swag for now. Whilst trying to complete an obstacle, which consisted of me carrying a car tire on my shoulder and walking up and down a hill three times, I lost footing during one of my journeys down the hill and my right knee decided to bend in a way that sprained the darn thing. And being that it was only the second obstacle out of many more, and less than 20 minutes into the 5 mile race, I completed the sucker with a messed up knee, therefore messing it up even more. Rwar!
Throughout this race, I had to tackle obstacles that involved the tire and hill gig that messed up my knee, crawling under barbed wire, carrying a bucket full of concrete, climbing 8 foot walls, jumping over fire, walking through a concrete tunnel that only allowed me to walk bent over for a 100 meters in pitch black. I must say, that one was the worst. I seriously almost had my first panic attack and felt claustrophobic for the first time. Never again. Onwards, I walked through waist deep water that was cold like ice, crawled over a sandbox of ice, whilst have barbed wire over me, did pull ups, TRIED to climb a rope, get hit by 2 gladiators with jousters, and climb over a wobbly bridge of cases over ice cold water, and swim through that same water to the safety of land.
Here's a pic of that::
I must apologize for the lack of photos of my experience. Bringing a camera through water, and mud and what not wasn't safe for my electronic.
Anyways, if you found all that I described like good ol fashion fun, you are mental. I kid, I kid. But if you would like to join in on the next race....here's their website.
I must say you do not leave empty handed, you do go home with a legit medal, and a cool t-shirt, and of course....war wounds like these
a super swollen knee....pretty
