Playing in the bubbles

Remember when I did that 5k Foamfest in early August? This one right here? The obstacle course with the foam and the mud and the water...yeah, that one. I got some pictures back yesterday. I have to admit, I laughed good and hard when I looked through them all. I also found out that two of our team members suffered broken ribs from the big, foamy slip and slide. (!!!) And yes, I had all sorts of bruises, scrapes and bumps in weird places after the race was done...but broken ribs? Oh my....OUCH! All the same, I'm still totally planning to join up with the "TransFOAMers" next year to do it all over again.

That looks like fun! I'd almost be tempted to run if I got to be covered in foam and mud :)

Okay, I have to know- do the bubbles taste gross? Like soap? and do they get in your eyes?
Of course, this is what I think about, not the fun you're having. :)

Yes, they taste gross. But not necessarily like soap. They told us to try not to inhale them....so you just take a big breath, hold it, and jump in. :) But you get covered in the stuff, and you laugh a lot...so you get some in your mouth anyhow. I really don't think I actually inhaled any, though. We wore glasses or goggles so as to not get it in our eyes so I didn't have a problem with that at all. It was crazy, ridiculous FUN!!! :) (We didn't get any pictures of the mud pits...that was even messier than the foam!)
