|Thriller dance number|
|Other runners in costume|
|This group may have been my favorite-this guy in particular|
|See-I told you it was cold!|
The costumes we saw were pretty good with several making us laugh. There was even a group who danced to Thriller before the race started. Things didn't seem to be organized as well as other races. We didn't even know the race had started when the people ahead of us took off. I think I've gotten spoiled with post-race food always expecting Domino's pizza but sadly there was no pizza awaiting me at the finish. I was too tired to run a good time and I knew it so there were a few times we walked and when I was running I wasn't running that fast. I was able to sprint at the end and I think it was for no other reason than it was about it to be over. I crossed the line at 34:55 and Allan at 34:59 so clearly no PR's were set. It was a fun race and we got men's and women's tech tees as our race shirt so I was happy. Last night I slept 12 hours and feel much better so hopefully I can catch up on sleep this week, get in a few good runs, and prepare myself for the half marathon looming in my future.
Sorry to be so wordy. If you raced this weekend I hope your race went better than ours as far as PR's are concerned. Anyone else planning to run Kiley's Virtual Halloween 5K tomorrow?
On a completely unrelated note what's going on with football this weekend? So many upsets! I pity the people who bet on NFL games because all the games today have either been upsets or closer than I would have thought. Not that many of the college games were too different yesterday. Close games that I thought wouldn't have been, blowouts that shouldn't have been, and upsets that I didn't see coming.
