"Foam is the new mud!"
But this Foam Fest...it piqued my interest. A 5k filled with obstacles...many of them wrapped around foam, mud and water. I hadn't ever done an obstacle course before. So after thinking on it awhile, I signed myself up on Franki's team...the newest member of the "TransFOAMers."
I have to admit, my nerves flared the closer this race got. Stemming from the fact that I hadn't done much running since Ragnar ended, certainly. But mostly, fear of the unknown. Oh, I knew that this race was more about silly fun than anything and that likely I'd have no real problems conquering any obstacle they threw at me. But I was running on a team where I only knew 2 of my 6 teammates....and more than that, I had no idea where I would fit in ability wise. Could I keep up with them? Would I end up running this race on my own?
(More pics to come when Franki sends me the ones from her camera...hopefully soon!)
