I just registered (and paid MONEY) to run in the 5k Foam Fest in May. Seriously. My first 5k (other than the one I walked in college) will be one full of mud, water, and foam.
Here is the description from the event website:
We are the ONLY obstacle mud race that doubles as a human car wash!
We don’t just bring mud and obstacles; we throw more foam at you than
a pack of toddlers in a bubble bath! Imagine the coolest obstacle mud
race ever, and then picture it staged inside a giant car wash! That’s the 5k Foam Fest in a nutshell!
Am I intimidated? Yes, quite a bit. I am also excited! Jeremy is doing it, and we formed a team along with four other friends. I don't anticipate a lot of pressure to run very hard...it's mostly about having fun.
I think we will have a blast, and then to top it off, we get a night out in Nashville. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
I am planning to run a real, plain-old-boring 5k this spring as well. I have been running again for about a month now, and while it's not pretty and it's certainly not fast, it does feel good. I am ready to keep it up this time.
WHO AM I??
