No go on the job. They may be hiring 1 or 2 people at the beginning of next year, but that doesn't help me now. I had a pity weekend.
Except for Saturday evening when we ran the Warrior Dash! After doing the Barbarian Challenge in June, the WD was a let-down. It was almost entirely flat running for the first mile, then obstacles thrown in, a lot of mud for good measure. The obstacles were better designed than the BC...like the BC had obstacles where everyone had to funnel down to 2 or 3 lines to wait their turn to go over, whereas the WD had big wide obstacles where lots of people could go at once...that really helped the times. We finished in 47 minutes and could have gone a little faster but we would walk for a minute or so leading up to an obstacle to catch our breath so we wouldn't fall off the thing.
**just checked the times on WD website and we actually finished in 41 minutes 56 seconds...I didn't see the clock at the end, but the wife said she thought it said 47. That ranks me at 645th out of 1327 in my age group.

If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
