We ran amuck yesterday. Really. It was the perfect day for a get down an dirty in the woods type of 5k. A little chilly in the AM but when sun came blasting, the temp must have been a solid 75 or 80. We met at the Shady Grove metro station to assemble tutus and apply Black Swan-ian eye make up.
Later, we realized all white face paint would have helped but it was still fun. Then, we caught the school busses that were hauling everyone out to the field in Maryland where the action was going down. Races had started early that morning but we were in the last race -- the costumed teams division. We had fun in the sun for a couple hours watching others wallow in the mud, crossing the finish line in a long pool muddy pool of slush.
It was a genuinely good time and you can see our before, during and after photos below:
