"We Are Warriors"

I have posted before about Braydon's interest in the military. His ultimate goal is to enter Annapolis Naval Academy and become a Navy Seal. In these days of preparation he has been busy preparing himself physically and academically. He works hard in school, but he also works out hard.

He has run some 5K's, but this past weekend he decided to try something a bit more challenging -- The Warrior Dash.  It is a 5K run through obstacles and lots of mud. We had some misgivings about the atmosphere, but were hoping to stay focused on the race.

He paid for this opportunity himself and he loved every minute of the muddy, crazy competition.

 Excited to get started.
Just one obstacle.

Savoring the accomplishment.
He came in 2nd in his wave and 32nd in his age group -- a fine finish.
