Runaway Bridesmaids: Remember that old Sesame Street game… One of these runners is not like the others. (Click to enlarge image)
So here’s my new career goal: Get on the cover of Men’s Fitness AND score an endorsement deal with Clif Bar, the best energy bar EVER. Check out my eyewitness account to the most dynamic road race in sports today: The Runaway Bridesmaids competition in New York’s 5th Avenue Mile.
The Finish Line scene was classic.
Slowed Down By Satin? Could the heavy fabric on the purple dress be responsible for me finishing microseconds behind #8230 and #8231?
Here’s the back story.
Costumed theme 5K races are becoming far more commonplace. Which outfit would you rather wear to a wedding?
I’ll be huffing and puffing 5 kilometers in disguise over the next month, channeling the spirit of a bridesmaid and Robin the Boy Wonder in two separate charity races.
Would be honored if you’d consider pledging a donation of any size to the Runaway Bridesmaids team (fighting human trafficking) at New York’s 5th Avenue Mile Race this weekend — or to the Garnick Justice League, which is again battling for Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD) at their Superhero 5K.
The homemade Robin costume is as advertised. The dresses above, however, bear no resemblance to the one which will be draped on my frame this Saturday.
That’s a fashion secret about to be revealed in a Men’s Fitness magazine exclusive.
Really. Stay tuned….
UPDATE: Here’s the reveal.
