I've Gone Cuckoo

As I am "focusing" on my running and getting to the point I would no longer be considered to be a contestant on the Biggest Loser, I get talked in to craziness. A friend of mine at work, with whom I discuss working out and such, said, "Hey would you be interested in doing this obstacle course run with me and another co-worker?"  I said, yeah why not. Um yeah, I haven't signed up yet, and the time slot that they are running in is full so I'd be on my own doing the Warrior Dash. If this wasn't enough, they want to do the Madison Mud Run, which is 5 miles of hell in May. I have yet to run 5 miles, let alone through an obstacle course, but I for see it happening before May, since I am going to have to do this bad boy. I did do 4.68 miles Monday, but I probably walked about half a mile of that cooling down. But I did it in 55 min so, I should be able to get in before the 2.5 hour cut off. The only thing is, the other two want to run together and help each other through, but I have this feeling that once the thing starts, my competitiveness may take over and I'll want to go, go, go.

Looks like fun! (well not really...if I was in shape and not waddling it would like fun!)

GO, MOMMA! I think it sounds like a blast - and you are right . . . once you get going, I have no doubt you will finish strong!
