There are also Mud Runs that are similar to (but less intense than) the Warrior Dash. I'll be doing 2 of these in Lincoln & just outside of Omaha next month. They are pretty laid back events so you wouldn't have to worry if you had to take breaks to walk. You won't be the only one.
I've started reincorporating my 4 mile walks back into my work out program. I'm alternating going to the gym and going out for my walks. The thing I need to start working on there is jogging a bit more.
