A friend of mine thought it would be fun to get a group of her friends together and run a 5K for her birthday. It was the UV Splash.
It was the most gigantic-of-a-mess race I've ever run. We were laughing at how ridiculous it seemed all night.
First of all, every single runner had the exact same number… lame. It wasn't timed. The course was in a mall parking lot. I'm not even kidding. There were NO bathrooms of any sort. We ran two laps around and through the parking lot and it ended up only being 2.94 miles.
While you're running they spray you with some watery stuff (in a weed killer pump sprayer) that glows under a black light but just looks like pee in regular light. There were only 250 participants so it didn't seem very legit at all.
BUT… the face paint was fantastic, the friends were fun, I finished in the top ten, we ate at Applebee's after and didn't get home till 1:30 in the a.m.
Honestly, it was fun and I'm so glad I went… happy birthday Andrea!
