When I think of Novelty, I think of fun.
I mean, there's a Novelty store in our town that has cut outs of Star Wars Characters, super hero costumes, fun things for parties, fake snot... things you wouldn't fine in most places. But a store I can go in & look in for hours & envision what I want to be for Halloween.
... the answer is always Belle though.... always.
But Novelty races have taken a turn to me.
Now, they require full body skills that make me see what the race is & requires & I'm like, "I'm outta here"
With a bum shoulder, 2 busted knees & a slipped disc in my low back, odds are you won't find me at the new modern day Novelty Runs.
You know the ones... Spartan... Warrior Dash....Tough Mudder
Even those names scare me.
|The answer would be NO... never...|
Wall scaling?... I never applied to Ninja Warrior for a reason
Fire Jumping? ... The hubs doesn't even like when I light candles because I'm so careless with fire.
Let me stick to races where pretty colors are thrown on you... or neon lights are lining a path at night & you glow in lights that make me think back to the 70's roller rink...
Those types of novelty races are my speed.
The ones where times don't matter.
Families do them together & I can get passed up by a 5 yr old (which happens WAY too often)
The ones where I leave with smiles & not bruises.... & definitely not having mud in my socks & shoes. I pay way too much money to get mud in my shoes.
I will give you all TOUGH PEEPS out there that do these races some credit.... you are amazing. I love reading about your experiences because I know its not something I could ever do.... so keep posting your pics & your experience. I'm sitting here clapping for you
... while I sit in my Belle dress.
What about you?
Do you like the rough & tough races?
Or are you just about the novelty FUN?
