The intellectual equivalent of a ham sandwich.

The Face of … Victory?

On Saturday, November 19th, I ran in the Warrior Dash. It’s a 5k race with obstacles. I signed up with 4 other guys, but one of the guys had to sit out because of an injury. Sorry, J.

We decided on a costume. Camo pajama pants, and a t-shirt. The team members were: Captain Cuddly (me), Sergeant Snuggles, Private Pillowtalk, Specialist Smooches.

The pants ended up being a HUGE mistake. Do you know how heavy mud-soaked pants are? I do, now.

It was a nice central-Texas late-fall day, at about 70 degrees. Oof. Thankfully it was overcast.

Kicking it off.

“Don’t die, don’t die, don’t die …”

Still so clean …

Bye cleanliness! (The high-five splashed mud on my face – hence that look. Thanks for that Specialist Smooches.)

(I brought a waterproof camera on the run … it got a bit muddy but it had a few decent shots.)

Taking a plunge!

And finally … GAH! (Self-portrait guru)

  1. You participate in a lot of different marathons. I didn’t realize they did them in so many crazy themes. I suppose each presents it’s own challenge. I’m just waiting for one where you have to dress up as a plushy mascot. Seeing giant dinosaurs and hot dogs racing… that’s just something that needs to be.
