The boy and I are racing the Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon, next Saturday, the 29th. We’ll, I should say that I’ll technically be the one racing. The boy has been traveling so much, that training hasn’t really been a top priority; and I can’t blame him! Although, he did start quasi-running a bit, just so he wouldn’t have a DNS. I think that’s more demoralizing than me beating him! Granted, since he is very capable of running a couch to half-marathon (as proven in the past), I’m a little nervous that with just a smidge of training, he very well could beat me! Yikes…
Even though there would be no convincing the boy to wear a costume for the race, I, on the other hand, would love to! However, I am finding this to be tricky. I want a simple enough costume that won’t hinder me from copious amounts of speed. And I want it cheap enough, because, when will I really wear it again?
1. Hare/Tortoise: I would just need a bunny ears headband and a turtle shell. But the shell could weigh me down. And the ears could cost me an extra few seconds.
2. Rainbow Bright: I have blue shorts and shirt. I just need rainbow knee high socks/belt and a read headband. Easy.
3. Wonder Woman: I would just need blue running buns with white stars on them and a cape. But the cape could slow me down.
4. Waldo: This is what I’m going to be at school this year. I don’t know if the hat and glasses would annoy me during the race, though.
All this to say, I’m not really sure what I want to race in! So, I’d love your suggestions too!
