ROC Race 5K: Irvine Great Park (7.13.13)

Successfully completed the Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge (ROC) Race at Irvine Great Park this morning. Definitely the best, most fun 5K I’ve done up to this point… here’s to hoping that NZ has cool runs like these. Sadly, ROC Race isn’t in NZ or AUS, but maybe sooner or later…

Team Wun Wobby Wun was a total of around 24 Disney CMs, most of which I didn’t know, and I clearly look like the actual lone ranger in this shot. 😉 Regardless, it was awesome– most obstacles were ones featured on the show Wipeout.

Obstacles included:

  • World’s Largest Inflatable Water Slide
  • Belly Flop
  • Wrecking Ball
  • World’s Largest Moon Bounce
  • Tarzan Swing
  • Tight Rope Traverse
  • Get It Up (and Over)
  • Tire Mile
  • Cool Runnings
  • Gorilla Bars
  • Concrete-Stadores

Sleight of Mouth with Justin Willman (7.9.13)

Last Fourth of July in CA 

Chilled, gabbed, tanned, ate, drank (non-alcoholic stuff for this pansy), snacked s’more, watched crazy YouTube videos, watched the fireworks, walked on the beach in the evening, watched Pitch Perfect… a perfect Fourth of July in Belmont Shore.

I’ll miss you, CA… including my sunny and beautiful friends, most of all. ❤

WeHo, WeMeetAgain (7.6.13)

Fun, fun times… even though I need to take five hour energy shots and down energy drinks before going out in order to stay out past midnight nowadays. Grandma f’sho now… last Vegas trip for Labor Day weekend shall be the best “last” trip ever before my adventure abroad.

Finalizing the Next Chapters of My Life…

Flight from LAX –> Kahului: Check

Flight from Maui to Honolulu: Soon to be purchased

Flight from Honolulu –> Auckland: Check

My last full day in California will be October 17; I’m only giving myself about a 12-hour turn around from the time I leave Disney to the minute the plane takes off from LAX to Kahului. At least I’ll be getting a nice 10-day Hawaii vacation in before I begin my adventures in NZ…

For the Punny…

I LOVE PUNS and just about anything witty and snark-a-licious. In my spare time, I often get distracted and find myself Googling fresh new puns… not ashamed to admit that.



One thought on “Riddikulus!

  1. Hi Deb,

    My name is KC Owens; I’m a college student who loves to travel! While cruising the Internet, I found your site and really enjoyed reading your posts. Personally, I think traveling is a necessary part of life as you’re exposed to all sorts of new cultures and experiences. While enjoying time abroad, I’ve found it’s crucial to fully understand the dangers that you might encounter along the way. These mishaps are part of life and certainly part of travel but it’s always a great idea to take preventive measures to help ensure your safety while abroad.

    I was hoping that you would allow me to write a post for your site to share my travel safety tips with your readers? I put a lot of time and passion into my traveling and I would love to help others by offering safety advice as a result of the mistakes and triumphs I’ve had. I look forward to hearing from you!


    KC Owens
