Caveman Crawl...

On Saturday morning, Justin and I were up bright and early to drive about 1 1/2 hours away for his lastest "event"...the Caveman Crawl. Justin has been into triathlons for the last year or so, but he and a friend decided that they needed to participate in a crazy, fun, light-hearted activity---an off-road obstacle course!!! It is held in Bridgeport, TX, and is a 5K path through 22 different (crazy and muddy) obstacles!! I came along as their cheerleader and photographer, and got some pretty funny pictures and videos! I've attached some pictures of the guys (he did it with our friend Aaron from church) before and after--believe me, it will be easy to tell the after pictures by the new color of their clothing!

The crazy boys...they were encouraged to wear costumes if they wanted to, so these boys decided to be 70's basketball players, complete with headbands, wristbands, and tube socks!

Getting pumped up...they didn't know what they were in for!

There were other characters around too...Where's Waldo, Cavegirl, and The Incredible Hulk, ...and many more that I couldn't get a picture of!

Here was the starting line...right into a lake they had to cross! Other obstacles, they tell me, included 4 more lake events/mud pits, hill climbing (some muddy hills, some sandy hills), climbs up cargo nets, under cargo nets, balance beams, and the best of all, a large pond with a mud pit right at the end!

Here they are after they finished...

And the ending that I caught on video...what a day!

Is it crazy that this actually looked fun to me? I had flashbacks of the crazy, icky, fun days I had at camp every summer growing up, and I told Justin that I was in for next year!!! Come on, wives...who is in with me for next year??? =)
