My Running Halloween Costume

I have a Halloween run planned. And I noticed that Idaho Running Company in Boise was having a Halloween themed fun run on last Thursday. I had to join in on that.

Costume Run 2015

I guess I better have made a costume, huh!

I spend pretty much a whole day searching the interwebs for a fun, running, costume. Halloween, I need to rock my Team Beef shirt, so I needed a costume where that could be shown.

Searching, and searching and searching.

Ah ha! I found the perfect costume. All I needed was a huge chunk of cardboard and some paint.

It took about 2 days to make just because of all the coats of paint we put on my costume. I really wanted to win the Idaho Running Company costume contest!

I sent a few pics to my friends and they all loved my costume after it was done. I felt like it was fun, and unique.

When I showed up to Shu's on Thursday evening, I felt that I had a good chance of winning! I'm seriously really shy, so I was a little nervous to put it on and parade around the store. Plus it was kinda big. But after I signed in and got ready to start the fun run, I had some really good reactions to my costume.

I basically carried this piece of cardboard for the 2 mile run. It really started getting awkward near the end. Plus I stepped into a pothole covered with leaves in the last half and tweaked my ankle a bit, so I really wasn't on my A-Game.

The sign costume wouldn't fit in my backseat flat, so we bent it in half. When the breeze came up, it was really awkward to carry.

I was unsure if I should paint the back to match the front, or just paint it all black. I decided to just go with plain.

Once back into the store, we got some swag thrown at us - new socks, Clif Bars and stuff. Yay! We then voted for best costume.

I was one of 3 that won goodie bags for best costume.

I got some cool Shu's runner dude logo'ed swag. New socks are always welcomed. (If you need the free shipping coupon for RoadID, lemme know & I'll send it your way)

I'll be doing a blog post on the FITS Runner Lite socks in the next couple of weeks.

I got a Camelbak Podium Chill bottle, some logo stickers and tattoos, a pewter bracelet and necklace - made by Treasure Cast in Boise.

And I got a $15 gift card. Totally worth it just for that. Yay! I think I am ready for another pair of shoes from Shu's.

Are you running a Halloween race and what is your costume?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
