I attended my first Winter Pineapple Classic 5k this month and it was totally bonkers (in the best way, of course)! The Pineapple Classic is a three-mile obstacle course that participants complete while carrying a pineapple. If you get bored of just running a 5k, then you have to sign up for this next year!

This event, that took place at Marymoor Park, was all about getting dirty, saving lives and having a blast doing it. This was the 11th year for the WPC 5k.

The event benefits The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, hundreds of people signed up and raised money for blood cancer research! It was a beautiful Sunday to be outside climbing and running around.

Oh, and to add to the fun, many teams dressed in costumes!

T-Rex, pineapples and an obstacle course, all to raise money for a great cause. This was all-around fun!
