Picture this: You arrive at Rockingham Dragway on May 19th with a carload of your most adventurous friends. As you step out you notice the people around you admiring your groups coordinated Avengers-in-bathing-suits costumes and your on-point Hulk-green body paint.

You make a note to sign up for that and the pie-eating contest after you run. You see obstacles in the distance mud-covered people jumping over fire, bouncing on trampolines, rocketing down a huge water slide and your surging excitement confirms what you already knew: Today is going to be awesome
