Urban Obstacle Challenge

Day two of the three day blitz for the Bryants. We had our triathlon on Saturday, Sunday is this awesome event and Monday, well - more to come about Monday.

This was the first year that NW Personal Training put on this event. As usual, they did not disappoint. We were, again, sponsors and participants.

I had no idea what to expect coming in to today and I HATE that. I didn't know what to wear, what to bring, what to do! The event started at 9 am, so we got down to the Vancouver Lake Park around 8 to get set up.

There were about 70 participants. The course was really spread out and it occured to me that there was going to be a lot of running. Not super happy about that, but what the hell, right?! We decided we'd stay together for the entire event, even though Trevor runs a lot faster.
Here we go....

We went through tires, crawled through pipes, weaved our way through posts and trees, crawled through sand, made our way through mud bogs, forests and pools of water!

Here we are finishing up!

It was pretty hot and humid out and we were really sweaty!! We gave out lots of samples of Max Muscle protein to replenish everyone's energy stores!

Lunch was included in the entry fee. So we enjoyed some yummy food from Tommy O's, a local Hawaiian restaurant. Afterwards, there were some awards and a debriefing. They want to make this event bigger and better next year and wanted feeback about how we thought it went this year. The general consensus was that we all wanted more obstacles!

I was tired after we were done and was really ready to head for home and enjoy the rest of our weekend! Another great event! We love this kind of stuff, its fitness and fun all together in one!
