For those of you new to Rutgers you may not be away of all the cool opportunities students can take advantage of with Rutgers Recreation. Each semester they have numerous non-credit classes open to both undergrad and graduate students. They also organize day trips for local recreation activities like hiking, yoga, whitewater rafting in addition to trips to visit local cities like Philadelphia and New York.
My most recent involvement was on Friday 9/30/13 when I participated in the RU Muddy 5K obstacle race. It was a chance to get out and have some fun running through the Ecological Preserve on Livingston Campus while completing obstacles and crawling through a giant mud pit. Luckily the weather was pretty warm because I was coated from head to toe in mud by the end of the race. Although I did end up a bit bruised and battered from the obstacles it was a lot of fun and a nice change from the daily grind.
Tomorrow, 10/9/13, I am participating in Illuminate the Knight a 1.5mi run through Livingston campus that culminates in a dance party. The course will be lighted with black lights, strobes, neons, laser and more. It is suggests racers show up in neon and white to help light the course. The after party at the finish line will have a DJ and more Rave lighting. Registration is still open for anyone interested.
