Last year I decided to get in better shape. I ran a 5k road race and enjoyed it. Came in 729th out of 7000. Then, I ran an obstacle race. 7th out of 700! I liked it so much more than road running. I started looking for just obstacle races rather than road races. I ran a few small races placing in 3rd in one and 1st in another. I found this race, http://www.herorush.com/events/, it is a national race. They are going to many states this year. I know that there are a few members here that run. If you are into running, I suggest you check it out. It was awesome! There are some crazy obstacles. Even if you don't like to run, the obstacles are pretty fun.
