Loudon, NH (Oct 12, 2012) –
Now that I have your attention…. haha.. sorry
Tami and Jim completed their first 5k obstacle course today, called Renegade Campground. We ran this to see what an obstacle course run would be like. Neither one of us has ever done one before. We need some experience before the 12.1 mile course coming up next spring in VT. Today’s goal was NOT about the stop watch but finishing with a smile was.
We ran, jumped over wood/concrete barriers, crawled through mud, navigated multiple swamps with warning of snakes and leaches, and walked. Yep, we walked (through the woods), Jim has broken ankles in the woods before, so he knows better then to run through the woods also in slippery conditions. As I mentioned before, it wasn’t about time, it was about finishing… and finishing without injury would only be a bonus! We did the ambulance head towards the woods before we started the race. We also saw a guy in the back of the STAFF pickup that quit early. We found out at the start of the race that the guy lost his sneaker in the waste-high water.
As you can see we made it to the finish line in under an hour. It bad for obstacle rookies. 🙂
