GNBTC Spooky Run 10k

On Halloween we ran the GNBTC's Spooky Run 10k dressed up as pirates. The weather was beautiful and pretty warm. As you can see from the below picture, Miss Bethany became a streaking pirate and carried the rest of her costume to the finish. Ryan wasn't so lucky with his costume as it was long sleeve and pants and non-breathable material.

Bethany running to the finish in 44:13, 7:08 pace. 4th female overall.

Bethany with her nephew, Robby. He was so cute clapping for all the runners. I was so glad he came to watch, even if he did break my pirate sword. :-) 

Ryan rounding the corner to the finish line with Miss Bethany cheering him on.

Ryan finished in 52:06, not bad for an overdressed pirate!! (wicked funny, the costume doesn't fit him around his calves because they are too big so both his feet fell asleep and were hurting him the whole way. okay, so I guess it's really not funny :-P) 

 Chatting with Robby after the race.

We had a great time at the race! We walked away with lots of booty too! Bethany won 2nd place in her division, we both won a raffle prize AND we won best group costume! It was our first time running in costumes and we definitely hope to do it again some day! Hope you all had a happy Halloween! Also, check out our AWESOME pumpkins below:

This is what you get when you search for pumpkins at 4:30pm on Halloween day: an ugly pimply gourd and a white snow pumpkin.

Yum! Note the stem on the top AND the bottom of this mutant pumpkin.

Ryan's freehanding on the brutal snow pumpkin that was like hard as a rock and 5 inches thick. (Gotta represent the Team MGD 64!)

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween! (Onto CHRISTMAS season, Ryan's favorite!!)

I wanted so badly to run in my Giraffe costume on Halloween...but alas is rained so I had to go with my backup. So COOL that you won raffle prizes, the costume contest and 2nd place. All around good day.

Wow mutant pumpkin is right.
