Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Getting Extreme: The Warrior Dash

I love American Ninja Warrior. I am not a Ninja, but after this weekend, I am a warrior!


My husband wanted to do the Warrior Dash for his 40th birthday.  I have been running for the past two years so I thought, why not.

We started out relatively clean.

I honestly was not prepared for the fact that the event started with a mile long run up a muddy hill. I mean how the heck do you train for that one.

It of course did not end there. We swam threw dirty ponds of questionable cleanliness, ran over fire, walked on tightropes, climbed a two story cargo net, jumped over barricades, crawled through the mud under barbed wire, climbed a bunch of ropes walls, waded through a knee deep river, and of course swam under barbed wire in the mud to complete the wildest 3.5 miles of my life.

I seriously did this.

 So we made it out a muddy mess.

They give you beer and a warrior helmet so it was worth it.

I think I will make this one my facebook picture.

Hubsters was pretty proud (he finished the course in 35 minutes!) How did I do? Well I finished. I have this attitude towards fitness, I don't do it to win I do it to have fun. So I finished in one hour and 19 minutes! Yep more then twice the time it took hubsters. In fact instead of watching me cross the finish line he was living in fear that I had injured myself and went to the medical tent to make sure I wasn't there.  Hey, if I have to climb up then down two stories of cargo net then I am going to take my time :)

Beer and Turkey Legs
Turning 40 Tastes good

So one of the traditions is eating a Turkey Leg and drinking some delish beer (Summer Shandy anyone?)

Oh and did I mention some of these people dress up in the craziest costumes.

This is me with a group of Chippendale wannabe's.  What they lacked in the Chippendale bodies they made up for in hilarious dances around the  stage.

It's okay hubby took the picture.

 So while I wasn't crafting this weekend I was having a wild time and loving every warrior moment of it!

Wow! You go girl! I'm so impressed with the both of you. There's one run in the Catskills in August that I had been considering, but it conflicts with my niece's graduation party. One of these days...
