I am NOT a runner.

But for some reason, a moment of weakness allowed for my aunt to convince me to sign up for a 5K.  That’s 3.1 miles of gasping, sputtering, and struggling to keep up.  The bubbles and mud were a major bonus.  I thought at least I would be able to rest at the obstacles and have some fun every few hundred yards.  And I did!  Four of us ended up running the 5K Foam Fest this past weekend – my aunt, uncle, boyfriend, and me.  It was the most fun I’ve had exercising in ages, despite being smack dab in the middle of a cold…and accompanied by a pesky side ache the whole time…

But the excitement of it all outweighed that – 30 foot slip ‘n’ slides, bouncy foam pits, and electric mud pits all for adults!  Plus it’s sponsored by Mike’s Hard Lemonade.  Not a huge fan myself, but their new Shandy is quite tasty.  I would highly recommend the run for ANYONE (there were all walks of life in attendance – even children).  I know if I’m around next year, I’ll definitely sign-up again!
