Becky and I did not win $500. Nor did we win medals. However, if there was a prize for most kickass outfit, Team Gettin' Physical would've taken the cake times infinity!
Despite being robbed of a prize that does not yet exist (but soooo should), we had a blast! We ran/walked/jogged 5.58 miles around the stellar neighborhood we live in (it's one of the top 10 in the country!!) searching for landmarks we didn't know existed, attempting to fly paper airplanes against the wind, circling a pond on buddy boards, solving crazy math problems (THAT'S what Algebra class was for!) and constantly asking store clerks and passers by to please, please, please take our picture!
In the end, we came in 6th place out of 18 (reminder! 1st place in fashion!). I admit, my gimp shins couldn't take it like I'd hoped and I was out of commission the rest of the weekend, but it was so worth it! It was a good reason to get up and enjoy a pretty day while taking in a somewhat unlikely workout with the coolest partner I could've asked for. The best part? Post-Race tequila cocktails!
Floridians! The race is coming to a location near you this year! To get in on the fun, visit City Scramble's website to see how you can get in on the action!
