The Drenched 5K was a new race that was held in Clarksburg, MD. What better way to run a hot Summer July race, than to have water shot at you ?? Well, given it had rained for days with cooler temps, I was never so happy to see blue sky and sunshine!!
|Elizabeth and me pre-race!|
This race had a lot of energy at the start! Great DJ, and having water balloons launched at us got the 1st wave pumped up and ready to go! I decided since this was just a fun run, to go out in the 1st wave group. That was the best decision as I saw later groups bottlenecked on course!
|The 1st wave getting hosed!! I'm in there! LOL|
The slip'n'slide was probably my favorite part of the course! I slid right into the photographer (although I can't find the pictures :/) But here is what I looked like after it LOL Bubbles :)
After the race, I found Elizabeth (who finished her 1st 5K), and we headed back to the bubbles for some good photos and fun!
After I got home from the race, my husband helped set up a water trap for me. The kids were really enjoying this WAY too much LOL
|Michael barely let me get the car in the driveway before the attack!|
The kids got good and "Drenched" before we called it a morning and went in for hot showers :)
So for anyone considering the Drenched 5K races, just make sure you go out in a very early wave. They had a ton of bottlenecks for the later groups. They needed more water features during the course, and they needed to tell the spectators to spread out ! Other than those issues, I had a great time with during the race, and then line dancing afterward, grabbing a beer and a hamburger, and just enjoying myself!
