We’ve walked them before. And everyone lived to tell the tale. We’ve done one 2 years in a row now on Thanksgiving morning and the excitement in the air is fun for everyone.
We also tried one that involved food tastings every half mile. Not gonna lie. I’d probably throw up if I ate a mini burrito while attempting to run a 5K. But while strolling with my children, it wasn’t half bad.
They had giant strawberries, some lemonade and a sopapilla. They also had giant chocolate chip cookies. And who in their right mind doesn't enjoy a giant chocolate chip cookie. Some lady brought her dog to walk with her. I’d like it noted that I am not a rocket scientist but even I can figure out that my dog should not come to a food related 5K because he’s going to want to try to eat all the food everyone drops along the way. And I'm not just saying that because my dog is Honey Wheat.
So anyway, we mostly walked and ate and I'm pretty okay with both of those activities. Then the wrecking crew started throwing glasses of water at each other creating a full on spectacle at the water stations and we fist pumped across the finish line. All in a day's work.
Challenge Nation. They give you a list of 12 clues and you go locate 11 of them and take your team’s picture with whatever the answer is. They check your photos at the finish line.

But it was fun. The kids liked wearing matching handicrafted bright orange shirts. My husband liked knowing which direction we needed to go. And I liked that we that we represented at the finish line straight up gangster. Cuz that’s how we roll, yo.
