Which run? We did Warrior Dash, which was pretty tame, but there were at least two people in the med tent for eyewash, etc.

Some of the more hardcore ones, there’s potential for bruising and injury. I very rarely pull a veto card (I think Fiance would laugh in most situations), but I probably would in this case.

 

ETA – If they go ahead, take a careful look at the logistics. Not sure from your post if this is a public race, but if it draws a huge crowd, early in the AM might not mean much.

So I did find one blog recap and some active.com reviews… it doesn’t look too bad, maybe it’ll be ok.  Plus.. I love military running events. They’re 5000x better run than others (like the mud run logistics mess I was thinking of).

Not sure if you watch the Real Housewives of OC – they did a mud run for the show a few weeks ago and almost everyone walked out of there injured!

I actually think it sounds like a really fun idea, but it would have me worried as well…

Sounds like fun guy time, as long as they all promise to not get injured! LOL Mr. LK hosted a shooting tournament on our wedding day for himself and about 15 of our guests. I told him that I was cool as long as no one got shot. They all came back safe and sound, and with smiles on their faces. Win!

And they decide to do this on the wedding day? HooBoy!

But, as long as he shows up at 4:00 pm in a clean outfit HaHa… I guess you have nothing to worry about!

One of my girlfriend’s sprained her ankle at the Warrior Dash last year, and another friend got pretty bruised. NO way I would “ok” Fiance doing this on our wedding day. We’re doing the dash about 2 months before our wedding, which gives us time to “heal” if needed.

You can find one of these events scheduled almost every month, so I would *strongly* encourage the guys to find one to do in June instead.

Oh hells to the no! Do I think mud runs sound fun? yes! Do I think that he should have a good time with the guys? yes! Should this happen on your wedding day? Hell no! Seriously. Too much could go wrong. You only get one wedding day (hopefully). I don’t care if my Fiance gets a naked lap dance from a dozen strippers- as long as it isn’t on the wedding day and as long as he shows up uninjured and on time for the wedding. (well, maybe I wouldn’t approve of the naked lap dance either. lol) You really have the right to put a stop to anything that could prevent him showing up injured/late/etc. to the wedding.
