Last weekend, I did my final obstacle run of 2015 – the Wipeout Run. This used to be known as the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge, but they teamed up with the show and rebranded themselves.
As a run, I found it disappointing. We wove back and forth in a parking lot. I’d be shocked if we really ran a mile. The ROC races were definitely closer to 3 miles long.
However, the obstacles were fun. Yes, they had the big balls, although they were really more like small/medium balls and in a bounce house. Still, that was enough for me, especially considering I couldn’t land a jump to any of them. There were a couple of giant slides and a balance across a beam while dodging big balls spinning around obstacle. That one was tons of fun. No mud at this one, but water in a few obstacles.
Afterward, I got together with Joy and Christopher, who lived in the area for a late lunch. We hung out at the restaurant and talked for a couple of hours, and it was a blast.
Plus I got to listen to half of a book on tape that day, which is always fun.
Sadly, I stopped at Downtown Disney trying to find a calendar. I spent almost two hours looking around for it, but when I finally found the right person to ask, they were sold out of it. I would have liked that time for other things. Oh well. That was the only bad part of an overall fun day.
