More mud than foam...memoirs of the 2013 Baton Rouge 5K Foam Fest {By Michael Tortorich}

If you haven't heard of the 5K Foam Fest, you don't know what you've been missing.

It's a fun way to get filthy clean. It's part obstacle course, part human car wash. For as much foam, there's even more mud. At least that was the case in Denham Springs, the site of the Baton Rouge area event.

From 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. on a fairly overcast, but pleasant Saturday, thousands of mud runners converged on the Tiki Tubing location. It had all uncouth behavior you would expect out of a wet T-shirt contest, and the sass of a Mardi Gras parade.

Here's a look at a few of my favorite shots from the fest:

Just a few well-behaved girls...

I'm pretty sure this guy is the mayor...
