I’m supposed to be in my “off-season” now, but new stuff seems to be creeping into that little “Upcoming Races” box on the side bar.
I’d been corresponding with Natalie over at Lil Runner about doing the ODDyssey Half Marathon in Philadelphia but was nervous to commit. Well, I just couldn’t resist the quirky nature of this race.
It's an addiction quite frankly.
Yes, I did sign up to run in costume too.
I’ll be running this one on pure guts and determination because I certainly haven’t been banking the miles in the past month. I’ve done the Camp Pendleton Mud Run before and that was a blast. I’m not expecting challenges of that caliber, but this race promises some surprises.
Looking at pictures from last year, one of the obstacles appears to be crawling through one of those fabric kiddie tunnels.
That isn't too crazy, but I’ll need to come up with a costume that doesn’t impede doing stuff like that. The bee wings from my Halloween race costume probably wouldn’t fit. I’m thinking about something that includes a modest tutu anyway. Now’s my chance y'all!
Easy costume suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Is anyone familiar with this race? Any thoughts as to what the other “unique obstacles” might be?
