Warrior Dash 2012

BDHQ's Biggest Winners (BW's) do a lot of goal setting as part of their program, and one of the goals they set is called a BHAG - a Big Hairy Audacious Goal.  A few BW's decided that this crazy race called the Warrior Dash would be their BHAG.  It domino-ed into a whole team going over cause it sounded like too much fun to pass up. 

So this past August long weekend, trainer Lovisa and a pack of BDHQ-ers went to Mt Seymour to participate in the race.  If you've heard of the Tough Mudder series, it's like that on a smaller scale.  This particular location of the Warrior Dash was 5.3km of heat, hills and obstacles. See race map here.       

There were hurdles, rope ladders, barb wires, fire and a whole lot of hill climbing in the blazing summer sun.  The heat was probably the hardest part of the race.

Those BW's need to set some new goals ASAP cause they killed this BHAG!!  Each one of them completed the race and had an awesome time.  Minus a rolled ankle here, broken tooth there, we escaped the mountain mostly unscathed.  We are SO putting in a team in for the Tough Mudder next year.  Our intro to the world of obstacle course racing will lead to many more to come for BDHQ.

If you're interested in joining us for the Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder or Spartan Race next year, email us and let us know!
