So what is the festival area? It’s filled with more obstacles, food, and merch so it’s pretty much a foamy carnival party. While you’re crawling in mud and sliding through foam, your friends and family can hang here till you meet up with them after the race. It’s the perfect way to let everyone- youngsters and grownups alike- get filthy clean with you on race day!

The best part of all, sign up today and get 14 FREE festival tickets (a $10 value!) with your registration.

The 6 People You’ll Meet at Foam Fest

  road runnerThe Road Runner- Sometimes we wonder if he ever stops running anywhere. From 5k’s to marathons, he’s there. You may even catch him jogging in place in the registration line. He brings the competition and will probably be the first one done in his heat. He gets the self-claimed title of winner, because at Foam Fest everyone gets a medal.freddie frat

Freddie Frat- The college kid, the party guy. He likes the foam that’s in his beer a little more than the foam on the course. Like Ke$ha, the party doesn’t start till he runs in. You’ll catch him with all of his friends, shot gunning a Mike’s Hard at the finish line.

the new girl

The New Girl- She may not have run a 5K before, but the thought of foam and obstacles was too enticing. She’ll let you go first at the top of the Death Drop, because she didn’t think the world record tall slide was really going to be that tall. The thought of all the mud scares her, but by the end of it she’ll love the new dirty look.mud gang

The Mud Mob- Forget the day at the spa, these gals are getting their mud baths at the Foam Fest. They are taking the day off from glamour and getting dirty. They come as a team to help each other in the foamy situations. Plus, you don’t truly know your friends until they are covered in foam.

healthy housewife

The Healthy Homemaker- She’s the Momma bear of family. While trying to keep track of Thing 1 and Thing 2, she’s finding activities that don’t involve video games and junk food for the family. Finally she can let the kids make mud pies and even join in on the fun too.

The Helpless Husband- Fortunately, he was dragged to the race by his wife, the Healthy Homemaker, but it turns out he ends up having a blast! His kids look up to him like a hero as he holds their hand through the mud pools and down the Death Drop. The Foam Fest gets him outta his comfort zone and into the world of active, foamy fun.

Foamy Philanthropy

IMG_1275This was a letter received by Nicole just a few weeks after the LA Foam Fest. Anyone who has lost their license before knows that the chances of getting it back are slim to none, especially between obstacles of mud and foam!

At Foam Fest, we’re all about philanthropy! Every small act of kindness counts. Whether it be helping someone who lost something or just a smile to a stranger, we think being charitable is pretty great.

We love this story because it shows the genuine kindness in the Foamster community. So give someone a little help, or even just give them a smile and in the words of this anonymous letter sender, stay active!

5 Tips to Stay in Shape during the Holidays

There are plenty of reasons why you could become lax on your holiday marathon between holidays. Not only is it cold outside in most places but the amount of school/work/family parities just got squared. So that being said, all of your vigilance or ignorance to pay off or cost you. Here are 5 tips to stay in shape and will make you feel on top of it all including the best present you could give yourself…healthy habits.

In order to stay in shape during the holidays it is important that you do not skip meals

Tip # 1- Don’t skip any meals before the big one- if there is one guarantee to overeat it would be to compensate for the ones that you lost out on. Moral: the uno card skip has nothing to do with breakfast. Don’t miss breakfast! Balanced meals with actually be excellent at helping you stay in shape.

To have healthy habits during the holidays it is important that you schedule your exercise so not to miss it when things get busy

Tip # 2- SCHEDULE a walk or get enough exercise to break a sweat. Good intentions are like crying babies, they should be carried out – Mark Twain. The holidays will get crazy and so only if it’s planned will you actually go on a walk. Exercise will keep you appetite in check as well.

To have healthy habits during the holidays one tip is to control the size of servings that you give yourself

Tip # 3- Portions are everything. This is where the “my eyes are bigger than my stomach” clique comes into the picture. Scan down the entire spread so that you know what to plan space ahead for. Half a spoonful of everything will definitely fill up a plate. And think about the plates that you are using. Traditionally the nice flatware is going to be twice the size of a normal plate! Visualize what you want on your plate before you start dishing yourself up.

One healthy habit to have is always to drink plenty of water especially during a meal

Tip # 4- Hydrate as much as possible. Plain old fashion water will do it. Juices are where all the calories are at and enough alcohol will make you eat more than you normally would. A tip is 2 cups of water for every plate of food will give you a great balance. If you are having multiple beverages pour you water first do you don’t forget about it. Water will also help with filling you up so that you don’t eat too much food.

a healthy habit to have is not to eat too much in one sitting. Do not feel like you are going to offend anyone by not eating everything or just get smaller portions to avoid that

Tip # 5- Eat until you are satisfied. You aren’t a turkey so don’t stuff yourself! There are plenty of us that feel that we have to at least finish what is on our plate. False. No one will miss the food. If we start out small we can measure it out so as to get the right amount to feel satisfied.

Staying in shape during the holidays may feel overwhelming as a whole but as you break it up into small action items then you’ll begin to understand how its done. These are just a few tips but definitely find the ones that work best for you.
