If I’m anything, it’s timely. That was sarcasm. On Halloween morning my wife and I participated in the Team Ortho Monster Dash in Minneapolis. It was a cool morning, perfect for racing. We left the house a little late for the 10:30am start, but made it there at about 10:20. With no time for a warm up, we headed directly to the starting line. By the way, a large number of the participants run in costume. Here are ours:
Other than the hood fitting a little tight, my costume was fairly easy to deal with. The coverage kept me at a perfect warmth during the cool morning run. I didn’t wear a watch for the run, so I’m not sure exactly what my time was, but I think it was around 19 minutes. Not too shabby for a 5k in a chicken costume.
Jen had the more difficult task of running in a rubber mask with a pillow stuffed in her shirt. It was funny as hell, but miserable for her. The mask didn’t breathe and the pillow provided too much insulation. A small price to pay for properly celebrating Halloween.
