Well, Glasgow Green was frrrrreeeeeezing this morning!
But, despite the cold and later the rain, we did it!
Of course, I’m pretty sure that most serious runners do not do fancy dress when pushing for PBs or wins. But, do you ever run in fancy dress, either for fun running or to raise money for charity?
The reason I ask is because I’ve done two runs in fancy dress this year.
The Color Run UK back in July:
And at the Zombie Night Run on Saturday:
And I’ll admit that neither of these were timed runs. Nor did I run fast (or rather fast for me) in either of these runs.
When I run more seriously, I don’t wear fancy dress. Usually this is because I am pushing myself a little more, and trying to run as best as I can.
Our next race is the Mo-Run in November, and right now I’m planning to run it semi-dressed up: maybe digging my lime green wig out, and donning a mustachioed t shirt 😉
What do you think about running in fancy dress? Yay or nay?
If you think ‘yay’ do you do any training runs in costume?
Tomorrow, @TheWelshWookie and I are running the Zombie Night Run UK.
This is our first obstacle race, and I’m both excited and nervous about it!
The run is set in woodland in Helensburgh, and we’ve been told to be prepared for water, bogs and obstacles 😮
It’s an 8K run, and the first 3K is uphill, so I’m not going to even think about, or worry about time. Hills are all relative.
We could choose whether we want to run as ‘survivors’ or ‘zombies’: we’ve signed up as zombies, as I’m not sure I could cope with the thought of being chased through a dark forest at night! The race kicks off at dusk, so around 5.30pm. The survivors set off with a 5 minute head start and us zombies need to chase the survivors, and attempt to cross the finish line with a ‘life tag’ from a survivor.
I’ll be happy just to finish at all! 😉
Fancy dress is encouraged, so I’m running as a zombie doctor, and @TheWelshWookie is running as a zombie chef. My sis-in-law, Janice, is doing our make up for us, otherwise we’d end up looking like a couple of crazy clowns if I did it!
I’ll post pics….. if I dare!
