Near the end of my college career, the Central Washington University Hype Street Team filed me in on what Wildcat Dash was. I was far from being in the best shape, but as soon as I heard about the event, I was hooked. I knew full well that I was committed to participating and would register as soon as I could. So, I started eating healthy and exercising on a daily basis.
On the day of the Dash I had everything ready to go. I made a mega breakfast, drank plenty of water and got plenty of sleep the night before. But all that preparation wasn’t enough for the ultimate Wildcat Dash. It was a lot harder than I imagined (jumping in cold water, getting shocked and running five plus miles, dirt crawl, etc). With that said, the Wildcat Dash is the ultimate event that any thrill-seekers can hope for.
