ROC Race DC

About 2 weeks ago I ran the ROC Race in DC. This race was AMAZING. It has obstacles, water, running, and music. What else could you ask for? It is a 5k obstacle race based off of a poplar tv show.  They had slides, giant red balls, walls, ropes and so much more. 


I was scheduled to run alone due to my husband being a total flake and backing out of the race but when I checked in 2 girls said I could run with them. They pushed me through the race and were great motivation. That is the best part of these fun races. The team work. You can show up alone and find a team! 

So thank you to these lovely ladies! 


One of the fun parts of this race was all the costumes. People come all out for this race. They were up from spiderman, a sun, to tutus! Pictures do not do justice for what the runners wore! It really makes the race that much more fun. I say dress up! I always wear running gear but I think I may have to start sporting a costume!


I ran the 5k in 40 minutes. That is a pretty good time for myself. It was not timed but I did time myself because for me, I am trying to get a good time. My favorite obstacle was the wrecking ball. You have to run across without getting knocked down. It may look easy but it is not. OF COURSE I GOT KNOCKED DOWN!!! 


Now if you ever do attend this race, you will get to meet the MC Dumptruck. He is man pictured below. He is souper funny and will keep you laughing when you are near the area he is. His outfit....maybe kinda..small.. but he is great and the MCs they are awesome! They really get you pumped up for the race.


Now..go sign up for the ROC Race. Use code RACHEL for $5.00. Prices increase though after time so make sure you sign up for your race now!!!
