ROC Race

This weekend was my Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge 5k!! I've been getting into shape but have still been so nervous about it. I was happy to see that it wasn't competitive at all (I love a good competition- but not in running). It was like jog, walk, jog, wait in line, do an obstacle, repeat. It was pretty fun!

There were a ton of obstacles like jumping hurdles and a wall, swinging on a rope over muddy water and hoping not to fall, tightrope (with workers who jumped on the rope and tried to make you fall in more muddy water), a water slide that you slide down face first into muddy, rocky, water on an inner-tube, worlds largest slide (with water), and more! The hardest one was walking across pillars (over muddy water of course) that have the ability to spin if you lose your balance PLUS avoiding the giant balls that are rotating around and knocking people in. Does that make sense?

 I was lucky enough to have Michael, Emily, and my parents there to cheer us on at the end- and take pictures!

Kelli and me when we first got to the race, still in the car and so nervous!

Wendy, me, Kelli right before the race started.

This was a bounce house thing that you just run and jump across. I fell down a level and when I tried getting back up Kelli jumped on it and I fell back down, lol. This is Wendy and Me on the left.
 We found our cheer squads and stopped for a picture...we were soaking wet by this point. And scraped/bruised!

This was so funny. We were racing along to our last couple of obstacles and our families were running with carts and strollers next to us to keep up. I couldn't stop laughing.

Wendy and Kelli going down the water slide! If you really want a laugh, zoom in on our faces....

My turn! 

We finished!! We were all sunburned, tired, and sore by the end but it was well worth it!

Family picture! There's a tiny room with windows behind me where people were dancing in soapy bubbles to "clean off". Pass!

Battle wounds...

I'm so glad I participated! Definitely look it up and see if it's going to be close to you sometime.

This looks like a blast! I've only done competitive mud runs. I'd love to do one just for fun.

The funniest. I saw that it was in the area but couldn't sign up for it. Then again I think I wouldn't have. Looked like a lot of fun though. :)
