May Race- My first adventure race.

I ran a 5 mile adventure run called the Xterra Claw on 5/1.

I had so much fun!!!

There were lots of obstacles to conquer:

Several vertical slopes where you had to use vines to pull yourself up.

3 water crossings, one to your knees, one to your hips, and one to your chest!!!

A crazy .25 mile finish with tons of hills on a very narrow path.

There is only one picture that I can’t save properly when I print screen it. 😦

I have to say, after feeling burnt out on running this race definitely made me enjoy it again.

Oh yeah, and something else happened this week:

I graduated!!!!!!!!!! 

I can officially add “MPH” to the end of my name.

Afterwards I went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner with friends and family.

I haven’t exercised for three days and I feel like crap.  I feel like I have absolutely no energy so I’m making a point to get in a hardcore workout tomorrow.

Goodnight all!
