“It was probably one of the funnest things I’ve been involved in,” Barone said
“They had a wall-climb, a simulated waterfall and mud pits,” Barone said. “There was a line of fire, and you jumped over it.”
Barone said the mud pit at Morris proved to be more than ankle deep — at one point reaching so deep, he had to swim through it.
“It was awesome,” Barone said.
Det. Sgt. McAlester participated in a 2011 Warrior Dash in Tulsa with his entire family.
“It was good. I loved it,” McAlester said. “My wife and both my kids ran it. We had a good time.”
Like Barone, the officer said he saw a number of other people from McAlester at that Warrior Dash.
McAlester Police Dispatcher Kim Troussel said she and her husband, Chris, participated in both the 2011 Warrior Dash in Tulsa and the 2012 event in Morris.
“We’re going to do it every year we can,” she said.
What about tromping — or swimming — through mud and leaping over fire?
“That’s the best part,” Kim Troussel said. “That’s where the people are lined up and cheering you on.”
