Beer, he has run with me once, and he is just like his daddy... slow, now he just takes his bike along. I get a good workout, cause I have to push him up the hills, and I have to drag the 70 pound dog whenever she sees a rabbt, bird, or other dog. But you must be 14 to be in the dash.

I just found out I have high cholesterol, so I need to be doing something. So I am looking at the Tough Mudder in June, Warrior Dash in August, Colfax 1/2 marathon in May, maybe the Boulder Boulder in May, and the Rock and Roll full marathon by next October. I have been doing 2-3 miles daily, and just went 4 1/4 last night, so by next May I should be good to go.
A friend who did the Mudder this last June said the obstacles in Colorado were no more than 1 mile apart, and when you get to the obstacles, there are allot of people to help each other, as there is no way I am climbing multiple 12 foot walls without help. There was a half pipe you had to climb, and he collapsed with cramps. He said 2 guys he didn't know grabbed him and lifted him up. (of course he is a skinny dude. Would definitely take more than 2 to lift me)
I did the couch to 10 k a few years ago for the boulder boulder, and I was surprised I could go the whole distance. Now I have some marathoners and Iron man friends who are helping push me along some too, and giving me tips when I ask, so that helps also. I am about 3 weeks into my couch to the rest of my life phase right now, and it feels pretty good.
