Run Photo of the Day 10.31.10 : Myrna's first race


Nik and I ran a 10K race in New Bedford, Mass., the Spooky Run. 
It's a Halloween race, hence the wrestling mask I'm wearing.

We brought along Myrna (she's good at races, unlike Stanley,
who stayed home). We got her this adorable butterfly costume,
which she kept on the whole time. There were other dogs, but none as cute.
It was her first race.

It's not as hard to run in a butterfly costume as you'd think.
The wings are aerodynamic.

I registered for the 5K but at the last minute, since Myrna
doesn't like Nik & I to be separated (and because Nik asked me to join her),
I switched my race to the 10K. It turned out to be a good move:
I got a PR of about 1:08. Myrna, of course, got an automatic PR.

Dan's mom (in the background) ran the 5K in 44 minutes or so,
and we met John From The Poi there, who ran the 10K in 1:01.
Those are PRs for both of them! Congrats!

Fun day with you guys - thanks again! Let's run the Poi someday soon!

Love. It. All.

That mask is great!

Alisa said...

Yay! PRs and costumes.

Looks like it was a beautiful day too.

Pretend this is real said...

Great costume! (I give kuddos to anyone willing to run with a mask on.) And congrats on the PRs!
