Blast Off

Guess What?!

No, we aren’t launching into space and holding the 5k Foam Fest on the moon…though would you come if we did? Imagine running a 5k with no gravity. We did, however, launch our NEW website today! Go check it out, it’s awesome! There are new videos, photos of all our obstacles, and information and maps on our 2013 locations.

Visit www.5kfoamfest.com 3-2-1 BLAST OFF!


It’s Beginning…

It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!

Being that a large majority of our staff are event planners, when the holidays come around we can’t help but make the office look a bit more festive. Today we took a little break from planning next year’s 5k Foam Fests to put up Christmas decorations. While blasting Christmas music throughout the office, everyone pitched in and helped decorate our little Charlie Brown tree and string up lights. We also competed in a paper snowflake making contest.

Which one do you think should win?Are we the only ones out there decorating the office space for Christmas? It was a great “team building” activity! 

Day of Thanks

A time to be thankful…for food!

Today’s lunch break was a thanksgiving feast at Dave’s house. Our potluck lunch turned out amazingly! Some of the delicacies included Emily’s mouth watering mashed potatoes, Steph’s scrumptious stuffing, and Mary’s addictive chocolate creme pie. Also a special shout out to Riley’s mother for promoting him from dish washer to sous chef while making her delicious candied yams; they were divine! As we approach the “stuff your face holiday,” it is important to remember to be thankful we do have food to stuff our faces with.

What are you thankful for?

Here at Round House Racing, we are thankful to be working at such an awesome company-what could be better than planning 5k obstacle mud runs while traveling all over the country? Running the 5k Foam Fest of course! We are so thankful for all you fans out there that love the 5k Foam Fest (almost as much as we do). You make it all possible.

You rock! Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s Nap Time

Are you tired?

Ever wish you could go back to preschool and cash in all those unused naps you resisted to take? Let’s face it, grownups LOVE nap time! And when three o’clock roles around those eye lids of yours seem to weigh a thousand pounds each.

The cure? A POWER NAP!

“A power-nap captures the benefits of the first two out of five stages of the sleep cycle. These first two stages take place in the first twenty minutes of sleep, resulting in the electrical signals in your nervous system strengthening the connection between neurons involved in muscle memory, making your brain work faster and more accurately.” (according to wikihow-a very credible source…sometimes)

Some days we just really need those extra 20 minutes of sleep to get through the rest of the day in the office, especially after planning all our 2013 5k Foam Fests! SO, no one can really judge Ryan, our CFO, for crawling under his desk and taking a little snooze…but we sure can’t resist using this prime opportunity to play a little prank. ANY IDEAS?!?!
