Soon! Soon my Group and I will be competing against Epic costumes at the annual Legacy Health Starlight 5K Run. Although it is a heavily costumed race with about 7,500-8,000 runners we surely will only be competing against 20-30 other groups and we have a chance with how awesome these costumes are! We are going as Characters from the Disney Pixar Movie ‘Up!’

We have Carl, Russell, Kevin, Doug, and the House. We are unsure how fast we will be running, but we believe we can beat the 14-minute mile pace bus for sure – despite our fantastic, hot, and cumbersome costumes. I cannot wait to see what other runners are going as.  This year- to save time, they are prejudging at 6:30pm. Be sure to get screen/prejudged first to be eligible for the final costumes.

For more info- read my original preview here.
