Up until 8:30 this morning, I wasn’t sure if I was actually going to be participating in this year’s event. Come oonnnnnnnn, I was up late with my parents last night!
Luckily the dynamic duo – JuLeo gave me a 30 minute warning and a hefty dose of peer pressure.
Before I knew it, Officer Moments was dressed and ready for action.
The run was incredibly fun just as I expected. A 5k seems so much shorter when you are returning fire to some ostrich riding cowboys – who think they are better just because their guns are bigger, having a conversation with a man about coconut chaffing… and cheering on good ol’ Charlie Brown. I think some of the best costumes I saw were a group of life-size tetris pieces, some gored Spaniards and their inflata-bull and a bunch of obnoxious fairies beating the crap out of people with their butterfly wands. It was the best 3.1 miles I’ve run in a loooong time!
I am not exactly sure how I did since it was just a fun run/unofficial race. But my best guestimate is somewhere in the ball park of 29 minutes. Which is AWESOME, because I have only run a handful of times all Summer. Take that, H. Pylori!
Afterward, the Party Posse and I headed out to a legit lunch at Tuggs, since the picnic ended up being a bust. It was a nice way to end the afternoon…
Here is Buggsy showing The Dude some brotherly love.
And lastly, proof that Julia was actually there. She didn’t run since she was feeling a little under the weather.
