Are the temperatures heating up to summer levels near you? Do you want to Get Drenched?
What? What does that even mean? What am I talking about?
I’m talking about the Drenched 5K race event. You know all those summer race events that have you sweltering and melting? This is the opposite!
According to the Drenched organizers: “The Drenched 5K is all about bringing back those memories of summer fun. Participants will run or walk from dry to drenched through “hot zones” and drenched zones which may include mist tunnels, sprinkler minefields, spectator “sniper” zones, bubbles, fire hoses, and a 75 foot slip n slide (optional) through the finish line. Runners and walkers are encourage to form teams, don crazy costumes, and bring out their biggest water guns for a little camaraderie and competition against other teams.”
Does this sound like so much fun?

I know many of you would have so much fun running this race and the Get Drenched people asked me to help spread the word about these fun events and are letting me giveaway 2 entries to whichever event you choose.
I totally wish I could run this one on July 27th in LA, and was originally planning to do so. But, it turns out that Dancing Girl has auditions for a new dance team on the same day and I still haven’t figured out how to be in two places at once, so the kid responsibility wins.
But, please be warned that if you win the entries – you better be okay with me stalking you through the event. It looks like so much fun.
So – follow the Rafflecopter instructions below – Mandatory entry is to leave a blog post comment and then there are a few optional entries.
