So, my wife, our favorite teenager, and I decided to give the Warrior Dash a try. We totally rocked it. Here are a few pictures from our triumph.

“Wait a sec, Josh…I seem to recall from a previous blog post that your wife is pregnant.”

You are correct. She ran the Warrior Dash. Dressed like Mario. 12 weeks pregnant. Like a boss. A pregnant boss. Henceforth, it should be referred to as the “Careese Dash.”

Here are the before and after photos. I should note that my plan was to dress up as Mario’s famed sidekick, Toad. Alas, there was no Toad costume to be found in Amarillo. Thus, Clark Kent.



Oh, we ran into another Mario and Luigi…which was awesome.


On our way home we stopped at Ted’s Escondido in Oklahoma City. Ted’s is awesome. Note the number of appetizer bowls on the table. Remember that there were only 3 of us eating. I’m pretty sure that’s how appetizer service will be in Heaven.



All-in-all, I highly recommend the Warrior Dash. It’s an all around good time. Well, except for the part where you have to run. Give it a shot. Also, I highly recommend Ted’s. Ted’s rules.
