#Xtreme13 is still going on, we can’t quit now we still have a few months left in the year. This is the Race addition, some wet, some muddy, some just running but all of them a lot of fun.
First up is the Roc Race: This race was supposed to be Wipe Out Style, it was advertised to be big fun. They had a great idea, but they failed to execute it properly. This was their first year out the gate and well, they didn’t have many obstacles. My Babe did this Race with two of his motorcycle friends. Nori and I came along to cheer them on and take pictures. This was a 5K of fun so they say.
Spartan Race: This year the Spartan Race took place in Nellysford, VA. Never heard of it? Me either, I’m told it’s a little town in the midst of a mountain. It’s 3hrs outside of the Washington, DC area so the kids and I didn’t go. Babe totally rocked it out BY HIMSELF. None of his friends participated this year. He was in the 10:00 AM group and took the lead within the first half-mile.
He said it was a lot of up and down the mountain and in and out of the forest. The elevation also played a part as he could feel his ears popping as he did the 8-10 mile obstacle race. This year they provided them with a headband that hair their number on the front and the Spartan Race on the back.
