If you read my previous post, I told you guys I was planning on going to the Foam Fest 5k in Denham Springs, LA. I was so ready for this! I definitely had fun but it was not what I had expected..at all. In fact, they should have called it a dang Mud fest because I felt like that was all it was!

Now, I know I live in South Louisiana but I did not know if all of the mud was because of the weather or if it was meant to be like that for the actual race. . For it being a 5k, after the first sprint from the starting line..you couldn't really run the race..at all because of all the mud you were in. There were some foam obstacles..giant inflatables that you dove into and come out of covered head to toe. Another "obstacle" was walking through literally, the swamps of LA. There were lots of stumps and in some places, the water got extremely high.. This girl is only 5 feet tall and I thought I was going under on some points :).

I was so proud of myself for completing this. I am asthmatic and not that it is an excuse, but I still struggle with running and hard physical activity. I did it though woo!!! It took us around 2 hours to get through the whole thing..which is definitely a long time but I am not gonna lie, it was exhausting.. I took my damn time. Of course as soon as I got home, the whole family passed out. Sunday involved me attempting to clean up but really just involved me lying in bed all day.. Anyone else have any experiences with different "adventure" runs like this or even this one?
