A Devil Drops It Like It’s Hot and Runs the Night

This weekend, I’m participating in the Frankenfooter Living Dead Challenge, a two-part race comprised of a 5K on Saturday night followed by a half marathon on Sunday morning.  Since the course is on the very same trail my running group runs every week, I have a home team advantage, however, there’s still an element of fear for me because I’m a little nervous about running the 5K on Saturday night in the dark.  I just hope all my training in the dark wee hours of the early morning has prepared me for running in the dark, dark woods.

It’s no secret that I love Halloween and despite my fear of the dark and my issues with last year’s race, I’m still so excited to participate in this Halloween themed race.  I love dressing up, although I don’t need a Halloween race for an excuse to do so but at least I won’t be the only wearing a costume like so many other races.

Halloween Sun Drop GirlIn a previous post, I mentioned that I’m dressing as the Sun Drop girl for the 5K and I found the whole ensemble at the Sun Drop store online, so I dropped some cash it was hot, yo.  This costume might be way too hot to run in but it definitely be fun.

I finally figured out my half marathon costume.  Let me give you a hint.

Do you get it?

I will be the devil with the blue dress.  For the costume, I’m wearing a blue running top, blue shorts, a blue tutu, red horns and possibly a tail.  I say “possibly” because I haven’t decided if I really want to deal with a tail smacking me in the ass for 13.1 miles.

By the way, our adult Halloween party was a blast.  Here’s a taste of my sushi costume, but there’s more photos to come later.

    Devil with the Blue Dress on has always been a dance favorite with me. I wish I could get up and dance, but I’ve got the devil in my back today for sure. Love listening! Thanks for sharing. Loving your costume. You have such a nice smile. Have a great day!

    Great costumes! I secretly (until now) have a crush on the Sun Drop girl. So I think that’s an awesome choice. Wife and I are going to Guavaween as vampires this year. Kinda boring but should still be fun.
