As you know I am big into races and running in 5k's. Coming up on June 14 is the ROC Race. ROC stands for Ridiculous. Obstacle. Challenge. It is back at RFK Stadium on June 14. Now I am big a fan of races like this and I am super pumped to be able to participate in this race.
ROC Race 5k is the original gameshow-inspired obstacle challenge that features 12 larger than life obstacles like the infamous Wrecking Ball, the World's Largest Inflatable Water Slide, and the brand new Sweeper! This is an untimed event for ROC Stars of all athletic abilities, ages 13 and up - come see what all the hype is about and claim your spot today!
Now believe me, I am no way an athlete. I have recently got into running..as in the last year. I am able to complete 5ks and still feel okay the next day. These runs are great for anyone! I will admit that I do get passed by kids. The thing is..I get and out run these. You feel amazing after completing one of these.
I would say make a team and do these. They are the best to run with friends!
Now personally the reason why I love these races is that they are more about fun and not so serious. I never go to this for the best time. I go for the fun of the race. I want to have fun, enjoy my self and try to complete every obstacle looking as FABULOUS as possible.
