This race review is a little different as I asked my eldest son to give me his take on the kids X Warrior race from back in May. Now I tried to write his responses verbatim so if it’s a little jumbled up or different from what I usually write remember this is a 6-year old’s version. My questions to him are in black and his answers are in green.
Where was the race? Stampede
What was the weather like? Hot, no actually just fine
What did you think of the festival area? The area with all the tents? The best part was that it had McFlurries
What was the race like? It was like American Ninja Warrior
And what else? It was fun
Was it hilly or flat? Medium
What was your favorite obstacle we did? Umm …. the up down up down (Over under walls)
What did you think about the race was it hard or easy? Medium
What was medium about it? Actually, it was fun
Was it easy? No, medium
What was the easy stuff? The up down up down
What was hard? Nothing
What was your favorite part? The McFlurries and the medal
Would you do it again? Ya, next year I want to again
Lessons Learnt (from the parent’s side):
- How amazing OCR is for building self-confidence, after the race my son was much more confident in himself and he’s usually quite reserved so it awesome for him
- Watching the kids take on the course makes me think that this is a legit sport with a chance of being an Olympic sport in my lifetime
- That it’s quite important to focus on the little fun parts of these events like a McFlurry and the medals, it very easy to take it to seriously
Hopefully you enjoyed this kids recap and now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go get a candy cane then go look over my medal collection from the year.
The Big Little
I love Avengers, my stuffies and my little brother. This was my first race.
