The other day I saw a post from my cousin on Facebook. It reminded me of something I've been wanting to do for a while now, and that was to compete in the Warrior Dash.
It's an extreme obstacle course where you can run, swim in a river, leap over fires and over cars. Along with 3 miles of other stuff.
I looked it up and found out there is going to be an event in November the same weekend as my birthday. I thought this would be a cool birthday present and told KC about it when she got home.
Eric "The Warrior" Bolton: Hey Sweetie, I know what I want for my birthday.
KC: Uh.. okay?!? [looking down at her phone]
Eric "The Warrior" Bolton: I want to do the Warrior Dash.
KC: [looks up] What the heck is that?
Eric: It's an obstacle course where you run, crawl through mud, jump over cars and leap over fire.
She looks at me like I'm seven ways of retarded.
KC: You want to jump over cars and fire on your birthday.
Eric: Because I want too. I've wanted to do this since I heard about it.
KC: Is this like a mid-life crises?
Eric: No! Why?? Because I want to run an obstacle course and jump over cars and thru fire??
KC: It's just I've never heard you mention it.
Eric: It's because I forgot about it until tonight.
Eric: It's NOT a mid-life crises.
I mean seriously!?!?! Who doesn't want to do the following for no good reason?!?!
|Leap Over Fire|
|Almost Drown In a River of Logs|
|Crawl Thru The Mud|
|Look Like an Idiot while doing it.|
And it's not a mid-life crises.
