I like to think that our Superhero 5k run on Saturday evening saved the world.
J. Alabama’s roommate was moving away so we decided to throw him the BEST going away party ever!
I don’t think any going away party is complete until you have people running around in spandex and neon colors dressed like superheroes.
Am I right?
This was probably the most dressed up I have ever been for a run, and let me tell you it was a blast running through the town all decked out.
The pictures above are J. Alabama & his roomie who is leaving. They were showing off their superhero muscles. LOL!
Before we headed off onto the run we gathered for an EPIC SUPERHERO group pic.
And then like superheroes fighting crime, we were off to save the world, one mile at a time!
I forgot to mention that I had already ran 7.75 miles earlier in the day (I opted to split my 11 mile long run into two smaller runs).
But let me tell you, my legs were tired this second time around. I had to give it my all to keep up with the pack.
You’d think the cape would have made run faster right?!
It was fun running through the grass in my vibrams!
We finally made it to the finish line to find out that J. Alabama had added a little twist to the Superhero 5k.
It involved us not being officially “finished” until we shot gunned an icy cold beer.
Ugghh! He had to show me how.
That’s what I call a #Sororitygirlfail! Seriously, shouldn’t I have learned that in college?
What a going away party! I absolutely loved the fact that a bunch of people ran through town dressed up like Superheroes. So fun!
Have you ever dressed up for a race?
I’ve always wanted to, but I worry too much about chaffing issues and the distraction of it all. So at least now I can officially say I have!
Happy Tuesday friends! And you are welcome, you know… for us all saving the world on Saturday! 🙂
