The Insane Inflatable 5K: The Encore
On Saturday, yours truly will be running in the Insane Inflatable 5K Fun Run for the second straight year. It'll be at the Hope Sports Complex on Aurelius Rd. in Lansing.
If you follow me on Facebook, you know that two years ago I lost 30 lbs through a change in diet and a more and better exercise and weight training program. Well, the last few months have been a struggle for me health-wise and I have gained the weight back (nobody's fault but my own).
Because of that, it should be an interesting Saturday for me. I completed the race last year in 39 minutes, beating my goal of 45 minutes or less. I hope to break 39 minutes this year, but am realistic about my goals this year. I'm just hoping to break 45 minutes again.
The inflatable obstacles are excellent, as advertised. I really liked the Knockerball obstacle that was very early on in the race-course last year. I was also surprised by the amount of groups that raced as a team. It was considerably more than I expected.
