Holy smokes - what a fun race! I certainly wasn't brave enough to wear a "colddddest costume", but enjoy watching everyone else!
Here are a few of the highlights:
-Driving up to Salt Lake listening to all the best songs from the year/decade (two that particularly stuck out were "Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns and Roses - secretly, I always wanted to be Axel Rose for Halloween AND "Dreeamweaver"). Nothing like a good song to put you in a good running mood.
-Seeing the hairy dude in the red speedo and the ladies in the string bikinis (Maybe they weren't highlights, but I had bad dreams because of the hairy dude....)
-My race number was 2010. I thought maybe that was good Karma for the year, but then I realized everyone had that number!
Definitely not my fastest race, but I was there to enjoy! It is always nice to have a starting point for the year - I want to run every race faster than the next.
