Fall Activities

Crazy crazy weekend. Multisport Man had a mountain bike duathlon, and as part of the support crew, I got to stay up late and drink fine wine with friends, then play in the park the next day cheering for the competitors while they were getting really muddy.

It's that time of year again. I've been thinking about getting out my costume.

I really am a gingerbread man, you know.



Okay - here's my edit to the post. I zoomed in on the photo, because apparently it wasn't obvious that it's a ginger breadman - although it's blurry, now you can make out the buttons and a little bit of the frosting. And these pictures were taken last year - this year I've tried to convince my children that for Halloween I'm simply going to dress up 'invisible'. Although, I've sorta toyed with Peter Pan or being a jester. Peter Pan because I can pretend I have Tinkerbell's pixie dust and sprinkle glitter everywhere - I love glitter with a passion, and a jester simply because it becomes highly entertaining once you've had a few cocktails. I really do love the ginger breadman costume - just don't know where it is, and not sure I feel like running a road race between now and the holiday. But then if you wanna talk holidays, ginger breadman really likes Christmas because that's how Ginger came to be. Maybe that's another post - this edit is longer than the post itself.

Josh - that is Ginger in costume! That's the gingerbread man saying, "run, run, as fast as you can! you can't catch me!"

Bob said...

you're a crack up!
often on my runs i think of easy costumes to run in or ways to promote greyhound adoption via costume. what material are you running in? what is underneath? not trying to get pervy here. just wondering how the seams do twixt dem gams of yours. i think that's the only thing that worries me about running in costume. the chafing.

Here is my updated comment. Why does that picture make you look like your a foot off the ground. You are the flying ginger breadman.

It sounds like you've been getting some good quality (and much needed) running in. Isn't it amazing how hitting the pavement hard sometimes allows us to work through emotions. I would go insane if not for my running! Chin up. Stay strong. (Cute outfit!)

Hilarious!!

Doesn't it get hot though?

Do you trade Gatorade for milk during those runs? (Sorry, had to ask!)

Sarah said...

I love it!

I can't imagine running a race with that on...but it'd be fun to dress up and race. One of these days I'll have to do that.
