Oh hi there!
I am on vacation in Houston right and trying to step away from the computer.
However, I wanted to pop in to let you know about the 5K I am running in a few months.
It is called Drenched 5K and the idea is positively genius. From the organizer:
The Drenched 5K is all about bringing back those memories of summer fun. Participants will run or walk from dry to drenched through “hot zones” and drenched zones which may include mist tunnels, sprinkler minefields, spectator “sniper” zones, bubbles, fire hoses, and a 75 foot slip n slide (optional) through the finish line.
Runners and walkers are encourage to form teams, don crazy costumes, and bring out their biggest water guns for a little camaraderie and competition against other teams.
For those not interested in building up a sweat but who want to get in on the fun, Drenched has a free spectator zone where they get to drench the runners any way possible!We are all about families getting active and so kids 5 and under run FREE and kids 12 and under receive discounted entries!Drenched 5K benefits local Children's Hospitals in each city.
And at the finish? We stage the best summer party in town! The world's biggest water balloon fight, music, drinks and dancing. Drenched will be in 9 cities in summer of 2013: Denver, DFW, LA, DC, Jacksonville, Columbus, Atlanta, Kansas City, and Philly.
It is as if a family filled race and a water balloon fight got together and had a child.
I plan on bringing the whole family - this will be the first race Ina gets to enjoy with me and I think it is perfect.
She will have a blast!
