Great Urban Race

At the start line

Three legged races are not easy

At the finish line, we made it

Bret and I signed up for the Great Urban Race in Phoenix. Basically it is a race just like the amazing race, you run around town on a scavenger hunt and have to complete certain tasks. You can have teams of two or family teams of four, it was just Bret and I and our team name was Mack attack. It was soooo much fun, we will definitely do it again next year and we were even talking about doing it next year. We had to do a bouncy obstacle course, three legged race, eat a piece of corn, find many statues and take pictures in front of them, solve a horse shoe puzzle etc. It tested us physically because we went well over 8 miles on foot, and it also tested our patience with eachother. We encountered a few obstacles along our way, we had to cross a protest line for immigration, have an out of it homeless man try to take a picture of us, Bret had to push a car that was stuck on the road to a drive way, I had to climb a fence etc. All in all it was a blast and we will definitely do it again.
