The Goliath Challenge!

Deacon and I participated in an obstacle run in May.  The adult race was a 5k with various "challenges" and the kid race was 1 mile of the adult race.  The cool thing about the Goliath Challenge is that the money raised from registrations goes to Feed My Starving Children.

It was a cold and rainy morning, which was the norm for pretty much all of May.

Here are some pictures from the day!  I know there is a lot :)

The hilly terrain, not the actual challenges, was the challenge for me!

The event was at a snowtubing facility

Everything being wet, muddy and slippery made it extra fun!

Coming up the final hill!

Berean was a trooper.  Thank goodness for her rain boots!

The snow was the part of the course, and the plywood over the pond was too!

There goes Deacon, charging up the hill!

Deacon crossing the monkey bars! (BTW, I also made it across the monkey bars without falling in!)

Roman and Lincoln were great spectators.  It is always unfortunate, however, when you must wear a winter hat in May!

Hanging out with Berean

Deacon climbing the rope!

Success! We are putting one in our tree so that some of us (ahem) can practice

Deacon, through the water and running for the final obstacle!


The boys. Hopefully Noah's leg will be well by next year!

So much fun!

This does not look fun to me, but it looks like you all enjoyed it!
