The ‘Over 40s’ Guide to Running Insane Inflatable 5K [VIDEO]
I'm now 45-years-old, and like this guy in the video, I'm a little worried, or maybe even deeply concerned, about getting over the obstacles at the Insane Inflatable 5K coming to Grand Junction at the Jam Ranch May 16. What can the "Over 40" crowd do to get ready for this thing?
Unlike the man in the video, I don't need a drink and a cigarette. I'm not much of a drinker and have never smoked.

There you go, training advice for the "Over 40" crowd to get us ready for the Insane Inflatable 5K, coming up May 16. See you there. We can all go out for a drink, nap, and Twinkie after the race.
