Shortly after Friday’s post, I got offered a free entry to the Marine Corps Marathon and promptly accepted. I’ve heard great things about the MCM, and am really looking forward to the opportunity to run it.
Now, what makes the race especially interesting this year is that it’s being held on Sunday, October 31st. Halloween! You know what means… I want to run in some kind of fun costume. However, I think whatever costume I pick should be somewhat topical/appropriate. Luckily, I have plenty of time to think about it and try out different options. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
-Cheetah, the fastest animal (costume here). I think this is my favorite so far.
-Greek goddess, like Pheidippides (costume here)
-Dash from the Incredibles (costume here)
-Maybe another superhero? Lots of options if I go that route.
Anyone have any preferences, or other suggestions? I’m leaning away from something military-style, since I think there are a lot of actual Marines who run the MCM, and I wouldn’t want to try to take credit for being something I’m not.
