|Our team Monster Mash! Ok, not the best name but it was close to Halloween!|
So, the day after Rip and Linda left, SMS and I joined our two friends Liz and Carl to participate in the Yokosuka Amazing Race as the winningest team that ever won. It started at 9 and we raced around base until 1:15 until the final challenge in which we took part! Yes! There were 16 teams divided into two divisions and we won our division. There were several challenges throughout base and we ran back and forth across base like a bunch of
So, the final challenge was dressing in a sumo suit, spinning around, doing jumping jacks, tossing a beanbag into a trash can, doing the Macarena and running back to the starting point. Did you follow that? No matter, we barely did either but we did really well. Carl was the anchor man and had to do one more challenge which was to shake pingpong balls out of a box tied to his sumo suit. There was one ball that was very stubborn but was finally freed. We ran to the winners circle where we were pronounced, "WINNERS!!!!"
We won a LOT of prizes, which was unexpected and pretty awesome. One prize we're really looking forward to redeeming is the tickets to the Japan-New Zealand rugby game. I think the seats are REALLY good based on the numbers next to the kanji I can't read but I will keep you posted!
This post was brought to you by the word winner.
Also, here's a link to an AFN video about the race. Someone you know may be interviewed!!!
