Lunging for a Cause at Warrior Dash


Joshua Andrews lunged the entire Warrior Dash earlier this month to raise money and awareness for Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Find out more about his story below.

I began the walking lunge journey at 8:00 am and crossed the finish line 7 hours and 29 minutes later after covering about 3.3 miles totaling well over 5,000 lunges. My wife stayed with me taking some photo and video updates on Instagram. Along the journey a lot of people got engaged with the challenge and asked what I was doing, if I was doing that for the entire race and why, asked questions about the SOWF, gave thanks for the support, gave their service branch battle cry as they passed, gave high fives, fist bumps and some even did lunges with me. One of my TBS teammates lunged with me the last 1.5 miles. I actually got a bunch of thanks for service, but I have never served, I just really appreciate and respect everyone who is and has served. They sacrifice and do a lot to keep us safe which allows us to do OCR and many other things in our lives.
