Nestle time: 32:30
Salem Witches time: 34:56
The weather was freezing. Seriously, it didn't get warmer than 38 degrees out there. I intended to wear a witch costume. I had a hat and a skirt and black and purple socks with skulls and crossbones, but then it turned out to be so cold that all I managed to wear of my costume was the socks. Then I bundled up in this outfit, plus a hooded Salem sweatshirt and mittens. Now that I look at it, it looks like I got dressed in the dark. Maybe a witch cursed me with this outfit.
|My friend Annie ran too. She kicked my trash. And she was pushing a stroller.|
|This is how we felt after the race. (Not true. I'm always so energized after a good workout, but this is definitely how we felt about the cold weather!)|
|Pulling up the witch knee-highs in my new Salem Witch Run tee. I won it in a drawing. It's actually last year's tee. I didn't opt to get the tee from this year. Didn't have enough cash on me.|
|"To the victors go the spoils." which in this case is awesome bread from Kneadin' Bread and raspberry Jelly from a local farmer. YUM! I didn't really win the race, but our school's team beat the other schools in the district!|
Ah well. I'm dressing up tonight for the trunk-or-treat thing at my church, so that'll be my chance to wear the witch costume. Although, I'm still torn b/n witch and Miss America. I do look damn good in my old prom dress. Hmm...decisions. decisions.
Here's some more race info:
I took 12th in my age bracket (21-30).
I took 104th overall (out of 194 runners).
I came in right after a pink fairy and a witch from Wizard of Oz.
The best costume in my eyes was the guy who wore a black body-suit with underwear over the top, and a sign on his chest that said, "El Bandito". He looked awesome. Plus his toddler was dressed as a chicken. (I wanted to ask him if her name was Beyonce.)You'd have voted for him too.
