To Foam or Not To Foam

I heard about the Foam Fest 5K a while back from Pensive Pumpkin.  I though, ehh I don't know its a week after Seattle RnR and I don't know if I want to do it.

Then of course a deal site - the one and only has a deal on it for $29.  The smart saver in me says buy it, buy it, do it, do it!

As I look into it I realize that it is in my backyard. It is being held less then 2 miles from my house. This means I have to do it right?  Help me decide To Foam or Not To Foam? Have you ever participated in a Foam Fest race before?


  1. I have to admit I really don't like all the obstacle, get dirty races. I did Warrior Dash last year and while it was fun because I was with friends, I didn't like how dirty and cold I got...I'll stick to plain old roads for now :). Plus what if you get foam in your eyeballs :)

    1. I am afraid of the mud runs, but I am trying the Color Run sunday. I need to remember to get glasses to try to protect my eyes.

  2. do it! do it! be on our team, Barely Legal! as for the foam in eyeballs, I am totally wearing goggles. not kidding. we won't be fast AT ALL. Chevalier is on the team (mostly to push my lazy ass over obstacles) and he only runs when forced. Literally. He's run once since high school. LOL Should be amusing if nothing else. Let me know if you want on the team and I'll give you the deets!

  3. I saw this deal too and thought about doing it. I'm going to pass but I think you should try it if it sounds fun to you:) I still haven't ventured into the obstacle type races. I'm sure I will try one someday.

  4. Oh my gosh, that looks like so much fun...and foam...I say go for it!

  5. I don't go for the mud obstacle courses 5K that are around here but IF we had a FOAM FEST 5K I would totally do it...looks like a blast! (Of course I would want to do it with friends though) ;-)
