The “Bouncy Castle” Run

Hi there,

When I seen that the Inflatable 5k Run (or as my friend liked to call it the “bouncy castle” run) was happening, I immediately assembled and invited the running squad to join and I am so glad everyone was down for it! The inner child in me was ecstatic!

When we got there, we seen the cutest dog ever, we had to take a video with it!

Cutest Dog
So fluffy!!

The obstacle courses were actually tiring, I don’t know how my friends had a boost of energy running quite a distance to powering through them. I fell quite a lot and was shoved by my friends HAHAHA.

Mind you, I haven’t ran since the Great Scottish Run half marathon last September and only had a practice run of 2km 3 days beforehand. I was tired and panting, my stamina has fallen back to square one.

Obstacle course that I gave up on and crawled underneath instead

Seeing primary school kids surpass us with their parents makes me feel so unfit. Salute to them for actually training for this and keeping their energy levels up! We seen so many runners in costume too, to name a few: Mario and Luigi, Iron Man (Body Suit, that guy must be sweating buckets), Team Captain America.

Us, we’re supposedly the Power Rangers Bandana Squad but we didn’t have all the colours :)) More like Team Cap and the Grey Crew.

Medals at the end YAY!

….and that’s another fun run in the bag! So glad to have done this with my friends. All laughs and falling over.

“I can’t believe we paid nearly £30 each just to bounce on some bouncy castles.”

Looking forward to the next fun run or half marathon hmmm still unsure.
