No.... I'm always tempted to do one, they seem really fun. The one closest to me this year is happening when I'm out of the country, but maybe I'll do a different one at another time. Seems like something that would be fun to do with friends.

The Warrior Dash, no, but I've done similar events and they're a blast. Got a Tough Mudder coming up before too long that I'll be doing.

I'm planning on doing the one in Toronto, and hopefully Montreal as well if they ever get it scheduled. It's more fun to go with groups if you're affiliated with any organizations that do this kind of thing, or even a friend or two. I've looked into getting a vegetarian group together before lol, but the number of vegetarians interested seems to be so minimal that I'm lucky if I can find even one in the same state/province. I'm trying to convince my kung fu instructor to encourage the other students to make a showing. Good publicity, and a lot of fun. If that doesn't work out I'll probably end up going with a few guys from my unit.

The 12 mile part actually isn't as bad as it sounds. With events like these, the number of obstacles involved tends to result in some congestion at the obstacles. Thus, it really ends up being a series of sprints with some interesting speed bumps along the way as opposed to a single long distance run. You run to an obstacle, get a short break as you walk your way through the line for a couple minutes, do the obstacle, then do another sprint, etc. But don't get me wrong, after two or three hours of this even the fittest people are gonna be shredded, yet those who are only in decent shape can still probably make it through with a bit of willpower and someone to help them over the walls (and other people are always happy to help)
