warrior dash... in photos

I recently ran the "Warrior Dash", a run that is basically an obstacle course, in which you end up completely covered in mud. Climbing up wooden barricades, up & over cargo nets, jumping over fire...

Of course I couldn't resist breaking out into a few yoga poses for some snaps, as I usually do when near a camera. (Anyone else like that?) Luckily, one of my running buddies, Ryan, is great at multitasking running and taking pics (and wearing a sweet helmet cam to boot!) so i have lots and lots to share, courtesy of his great photog skills!

 i'm in the middle, jumping over fire... i was so scared of this and the flames were maybe 1-2 feet high, ha!

success! so close!

Wow. How fun. My sister did this to, but I did not know you had to jump over fire! Crazy! Congrats for finishing, and I love how you incorporated your yoga poses ;-)

Combining yoga with some sporting activities seems very interesting! Is that a regularly held event? It's like a triathlon with a twist of yoga exercise.

the event is annual, but the yoga addition was my own! a great way to warm up pre-race and stretch out post-race!
