foam is the new mud

When my friend Trish recently organized a group of girls to do the Foam Fest 5k in Sacramento, I jumped on board. Training for my half marathon was getting a little bit daunting so I wanted to change it up. This event was full of crazy obstacles, mud pits and foam slides....that's changing it up!

Because we're crazy like that...our team went dressed up all thug life. Our team name was Feisty Fhomies. That's right. The crew rolled up to the event with our dew rags on, and all blinged out. I, for one, have always wanted a grill. But unfortunately, I couldn't get the gold teeth to stay in my mouth.  But we still looked hard!

The reason this event was such a blast was because we did it as a team. We all supported each each other when someone was struggling with an obstacle. But we also laughed together as there was plenty to laugh about. Like the time we had to army crawl through mud under some wires. The man warned us that the wires were electric but I thought he was joking. He wasn't. I realized that when my butt touched a wire and I got zapped. It was so loud that the girl next to me could hear it. 
Here's me in action

I recommend checking out this event if it comes to your city. It's a great way to get some exercise and have a lot of fun. 

Have you ever done a foam fest or mud run?
