5K Foam Fest Recap & Pictures- SO MUCH FUN!!!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

A gorgeous day, fun, fitness, lots of bubbles and lots and lots of mud! What more can you ask for?

Let me first say that this was the most fun I've had in a very long time, if not ever!

I was so pumped yesterday that you could not pry the smile off my face. The obstacles were challenging, but so much fun!

** 5 ft. and 8 ft. climbing wall
** 20 ft. cargo net climb
** Mud pit belly crawl with an electrified rope overhead (yes, I said electrified.) I got zapped once, didn't hurt, but it got my butt down in the mud. :)
** Bubble covered moon walks
** 30 ft. and 50 ft. foam covered slip and slide
** inner tube crossing over water
** 100 ft. water slide at the end (called the "death drop")
** plus a few more

It was a blast! I will definitely do this again!

After our finish, with our medals on!

This health journey has given me more than I could have ever imagined. I never imagined doing something like this, especially in my 40's and my mother in her 60's. It is never too late to try new things, be adventurous and have fun!
