Every once in a while, you've just got to have some fun.
And that's what we did at News4 on Friday afternoon, as we held our very own faux-Olympics outside our station in northwest Washington.
Tricycle races? Check.
NBC4 and our sister station, Telemundo 44, are #Working4You in our communities in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
Water balloons? Check.
Headbands and t-shirts that matched the colors of the NBC peacock? Definitely a check.
A good time was had by all -- especially by those on the gold medal-winning Red Team, which included the likes of News4's Barbara Harrison and Tisha Thompson and NBC News' Domenico Montanaro.
Thanks to everyone who participated, and a special thanks to General Manager Jackie Bradford for the opportunity to allow us to get the competitive spirit going outdoors instead of in the newsroom!
Watch the video below for a recap of the day's competition, hosted by News4's Liz Crenshaw.
