Every Monday, at the end of the current weeks M.B.E answer, I will post a question for the following week. This way you can cue your post for Monday if you wish. If Monday doesn’t work for you, you can still play along any day of the week that works best. If you want to play along, all you have to do is post the question and your answer on your own blog. Link your post to my blog so that I know you have participated, and in the following weeks post, I will link all the participant blogs from the prior week.
This Weeks Question:
Have you ever partcipated in any unconventional races? If so, tell us about them. If not, is it something you would consider and if so which one(s)?
The unconventional I have raced are the mud races. I have done two; McGuire Air Force Mud Run and Warrior Dash.
McGuire Air Force Run was a 10K with ten obstacles. It was a very cold and rainy day- VERY COLD! I did this as part of a group team and we really did have a blast despite the cold and the fact that the obstacles left a lot to be desired and there was too much running in between obstacles. Unfortunately, for this race, the negatives outweight the positives and it is not one I would do again.
Recently, I took part in the Warrior Dash- and in comparison to the Air Force Run, this was awesome! It had it’s pro’s and con’s (you can read my race report and see photos here) but overall this race was a blast.
In 2011, my teammates and I are planning to run the American Odyssey Relay and I am super stoked. Other than that, I have nothing planned that would be considered unconventional, but I am always up for a fun challenge.
