I am the Warrior Princess, hear me roar!
This past weekend I competed in my first organized race - the Warrior Dash! It's basically a 5k with crazy obstacles throughout the course.

Despite the rough terrain, it was a fun challenge! We had a total of eleven obstacles. Here's a few of my favorites...
