A Warrior Weekend

literally….

We managed to all become official “warriors” this weekend after accomplishing an extremely gruelling 5km obstacle course.  Jenny and I stuck together the whole way.  The obstacles were the easy part….the 650 meters of almost vertically straight-up hills were what nearly killed us.  It took all we had to put one foot in front of the other to get to the top of the “Double Black Diamond Skii run (aka- a skii hill designed only for experts…)

James nearly killed himself…multiple times – he decided to wear his spikes – which ended up coming very close to breaking his ankle when he launched himself down the slippery “plunge” slope down one of the very steep descents – his spike caught the rubber, which sent him flying head-first, spinning sideways down the slope and smashing into the hard barrier at the end.  Luckily, just a few scrapes later and a sore ankle, he’s okay!

he refused to lose even one second by carefully going through the mud pit…he dove head first
