    Wow!! The course was more physically and mentally challenging than a mud run. I'm still recovering. I pulled a groin muscle, rope burned my finger, and scraped my shin good. My strategy was to rest at the end of some of the obstacles before the next...that gave me a better chance of making it. It helped to watch the 12 minute guy on YouTube. I heard a guy did it in 10 min.

    I made it through most of the obstacles and was most happy about the Battering Ram and the Radial Rings.

    I could not complete the Spider Wall, Sea of Ropes, Pipe Bombs or the Pit Fall…I tried each 2-3 times.

    I made it to the second to the last bar on the Broken Bars and fell. I was nervous about the fall and had to get over the fear before starting.

    1. Quite challenging but fun. 2. Upper body strength is very important. 3. Knowing the right technique and approach is a big help. Lines were good. It was a well done event.

    Humbling is right!

    Having done American Ninja Warrior earlier this year, I can say that this was more difficult. The technical difficulty of ANW is higher, but if you fail an ANW obstacle, your run ends, and there were only 6 obstacles in the Regional Qualifier. Alpha Warrior's obstacles were slightly easier, but there were 35 of them and if you miss one in the competitive wave (I missed the Battering Rams) you just need to do 20 burpees and you're on your way to the next forearm shredder! The event was a lot of fun and we saw several familiar faces. Looking forward to the next one!

      Yes, it was. After that, thinking I might be more of an epsilon warrior than an alpha... Still, just means plenty of room for improvement next time!

    Really thought about this one, but I am doing 6 this year and need to rein in the budget, so I think I am going to pass on it. Besides, this one seems to me like a bit of an amusement park thing...I'll bet the lines are going to be terrible! GL & have fun...Cheers!

    I will be racing in the 8am Elite heat for those who want to join. The livingsocial voucher is only good for the Open heats (held at many times throughout the day).
