DISCLAIMER: There's a lot of "me" photos in this post, but I'm trying to tell the story of the NORTH FLORIDA SUPERHERO SCRAMBLE and I ran as an individual, not a team, so ... whatayagonna do?
The photos get progressively more unflattering as you go through the post so I guess that balances things out.
Also, there is a GOPRO video coming. I'm working on stitching 25 edited, short POV clips together into one reasonable length video. That video will show almost every single obstacle ... there were 25.
Okay, that's out of the way.
Let us begin at the beginning ...
|My next to last clean picture.|
|The Scramble is divided into "waves". Mine was the 11:00 am wave and the photo above is about 15 minutes to go time. A swarm of folks arrived just before the start, so this wave was loaded with superheroes.|
|Just out of the gate and already mudded!|
|The bars on the left side of this picture are closer together and easier. They had a long line when I approached so I took the wider bars since that lane was open with no traffic.|
|Making sure the GoPro is on before taking the "LEAP OF FAITH" jump into a pit of muddy water.|
|That's my splash! Mrs. FC took photos of the obstacles that she could see. Most take place away from the audience areas. This post only shows what she could see.|
|The second lake crossing near the end of the race. The murky water felt so refreshingly good.|
I confess to lingering a while and cooling off on this "obstacle".
|I loved all the climbing obstacles. This one takes you over the top of a tall building at the Waldo race track and then you descend by jumping from round hay bale to round hay bales on the other side.|
|The final "obstacle?" ... or reward?|
On the GoPro video, you hear me make a little, 12 year old girly sounding, "Ohhh" as I take off.
Stuff like that keeps me humble and gives my daughters a good laugh.
|This is the slime pit you land in after the big slide.|
It felt wonderful too.
