Yesterday I wrote way too many words to describe the Spinx Runfest Half Marathon, Flight of the Vampire 5K weekend experience. Today I’ll overcompensate with way too many pictures. Sound good?

Me crossing the finish line!

And in preparation for the 5K:

I was trying to decide what to wear, and in the end, I was happiest with this costume, worn out in Athens one evening:

We decided I was Rainbow Brite gone rebel.

Great weekend! I will be reliving it over and over in my head for quite a while … (I won’t make this post any longer by talking about the fun hike we had the next day, but that happened too. And be sure to check out what Kevin wore in his 5K on Halloween. Great costume, Kev!)
