The Spinx Runfest was on Halloween this year…and some of us took advantage:
It was a nice day for running by Megan standards. Probably a little under 60 degrees with precipitation ranging from “mist” to “light rain” throughout. The Marathon Expert and I started out at a leisurely 9:20 pace…chatting and skipping over the first two water stations (and missing the 1 and 3 mile markers ENTIRELY. Not an easy accomplishment when the mile markers are 10-foot tall flags!).
At least 10 people recognized our t-shirts. It was fun to hear “nice shirts!” and get a laugh out of fellow runners and “The Office” fans. I proved that I have watched this episode ENTIRELY too many times by responding with quotes.
ME’s goal for the day was to finish without walking, while mine was to finish without throwing up. We managed to accomplish both goals, as I don’t believe walking 6 steps to drink a glass of water counts as a walk. It wasn’t the fastest time ever, but it was good fun and a good long run, which was all we ever intended it to be.
Happy Halloween, everyone! Congrats to all the other Spinx runners!
