You probably don't know this, but I have a TON of hidden talents. I can twist my tongue in both directions, crack my own back, and run while sleeping. Don't believe me? Proof:
Can you imagine how speedy I could have been in this half if I was awake? Seriously. The lovely lady behind First in Philly also ran this half, and killed it! Her hubs took some photos and happened to snap one of me. For your viewing pleasure:
|I'm at the back in blue!|
They had a helicopter taking photos, which I thought was kinda crazy high budget for a trail race with 500 people, but whatever. Cool shots for me! Here's an overhead shot at the start of the race. Again, I'm way at the back. Sensing a trend?
I have a new awesome plan to run in a Where's Waldo get-up at the next race. How much more fun would it be to spot yourself in race photos? I've never run in costume but if there's ever an occasion for it, I call dressing up as Waldo!
What??!! Someone beat me to it! So bummed. There's no way I could top this lady. Never.
Have you ever dressed up in costume for a race? Or any funny clothing/wigs/whatever?
No, but I would love to do it for a fun run. I love costumes in general so this would be right up my alley. Bonus awesome blog points for anyone who emails me pics of them in costume, I'd love to do a post with them all! Plus, we will become cyber BFF's. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org !
I've never raced a BIG race, but never seen helicopters at a race! Fill me in-- normal or not?
This was the first I'd seen. I guess they would be at huge marathons like Boston and Chicago?
