It was HOT!
As a runner, I’m willing to accept that most race conditions come as they are. The weather being the one major thing that no one can control. So when we found out the July temps were going to +96°F with high humidity and a warning for an excessive heat index, we dressed appropriately and decided to roll with the punches. After all, what did we expect for summer weather in the NorthEast? So for this review, the weather (even though it was as hot and humid as the sun) won’t be the focus.
The Good Stuff
I feel like I should start off with all the good stuff about the Great Inflatable Race because I love the concept and it genuinely got the kids fired up for race day.
Despite the hot hot heat, the kids gave it a hearty thumbs-up. Even though the sun-scorched the slides into lava rocks, and we all experienced brush burns from hell, a hyper-extended/rolled ankle, and sweat beyond belief, we had a good time. After all, it’s the GREAT INFLATABLE Race, how cool is that?!
