After the debacle that was the Samurai Sprint (not the race's fault, but rather my injuring my shoulders and not feeling good enough as a racer), I decided to focus a little more on "fun" races.
This race was the "Insane Inflatable 5k", a 5k race where the obstacles were all inflatable "bouncy house" type obstacles. I didn't think that my 5-year-old son would be up for the distance, and that coupled with the price made me decide to so only with my 7-year-old daughter. That turned out to be a good decision.
The race was only a half hour from home, which was good, and took place at a local speedway, so there was ample parking, and we parked a very short walk away from the venue. Registration was easy and we got our bibs. One smart thing was that the bibs themselves were stickers, so no safety pins were necessary.
