Inflatable 5k

We traveled to Kennewick, WA and met up with Chris, Christy and Nick Lande to run the Insane Inflatable 5k! It was a lot of fun. 

The day was 70s, breezy and sunny. Great running weather! Nick took off and left us in the dust after the first obstacle. He didn’t realize we do these for fun and not to run. I caught up with him just under half way through and we walked/ran the rest of it. Finished as the 11:30 wave was taking off and we started in the 11 wave. Not bad. No official time and I didn’t take my phone for fear of losing it or breaking it.

Anyway the obstacles were a lot of fun. Mostly climbing and slides but the second one out of the start was a tire trot mimic. Think tires lined up where you have to jump from one foot to the other military style as you go through them. I tried to do a single file line but that was harder than back and forth. Proud to say I did the back and forth pretty well. Not super fast but not too bad. 🙂

The third obstacle was a house type of structure that held blow up balls in it. Then there were more climbs and slides as well as some obstacles like the bounce house Kris rented for my bday. The second to last was just an un-even floor, open house that I spent some time bouncing in. Last obstacle was two climbs and slides to the finish.

Warm water and cold bananas awaited us. I think that was their way of making sure we bought snow cones from the vendor.

Since Nick and I were far ahead we waited for everyone else and redid the second to last obstacle with them.

All in all it was a lot of fun!

Next post will be about the rest of the day!
