The Hit and Run 5k
There were five different stations, each challenge involved large blown up things and water.
On the first one you had to run up the stairs and go across this balance beam type of thing while water was squirting you. If you lost your balance you simply slid down the side. I think some people did that on purpose. Then you went down the other stairs and on your merry way.
Then they ran around the stadium and back up to the other side to go through this obstacle.
The last station involved large balls going round and round, while you tried to run across a blown up plank as a volunteer is throwing buckets of water at everyone. Many people said it was their favorite station. Many people did that one more than once.
The finish was not far away. At the end everyone was hot and thirsty so they provided unlimited amounts of Core Power. Ellie and Kohlton both like the vanilla the best. We finished up the afternoon with a quick lunch. Then they went to Nederland, where Mark, Martine and Kohlton live. On the way they stopped to pick up the truck that Kohlton bought. Soon he will be driving, too.
I was impressed that there were all kinds of people taking part in this event, not just the super fit young folk like we see at some of these events. I might consider doing next year.
