Ninja Warrior Competition

We had the fun opportunity on Saturday to take the boys to a Ninja Warrior Competition in Grand Rapids.  We've watched the show on TV frequently and the boys are always amazed at what some of the contestants can do (Shoot, so am I!) so we knew they would enjoy it for a bit.  The added bonus is that a family friend was competing in it as well so we were excited to cheer for someone we actually knew!

 This is Dan.  We were excited to see him compete.  Now, lets keep this real.  The competition start time was 5:00.  At 5:20 they started introducing all 71 competitors.  By 5:40 my kids were already bored and ready to leave. The first Ninja started at 6:00.  Someone needs to manage the time a little better :-) 

 This was the first guy to complete the course.  Everyone else crashed and burned early :-) 
 Time to watch Dan compete.  He had told me last week that he wasn't expecting much because he hadn't been training.  Well, he ran that course like a . . .Ninja ;-) 

We left after Dan competed since, by that time, we had been there for over three hours (For real!) and the kids were quickly losing any interest at all.  But, we believe that by that point he was 5th or 6th.
