I'm SUPER excited about the...
[This is that cute graphic I was telling you about!]
Me and my friend JDA are running it. I'm so happy that I found a running buddy (and newfound friend here in Raleigh!). JDA actually has a lot more experience than I do with races. Her and her family have done quite a few 5k's. The good thing though is that she and I still have about the same pace. I'm looking forward to continuing our running even after the Monster Dash. 10k anyone?! We've "trained" a few days. It's going to be such a great feeling to complete the 5k on Sunday.
As for a costume for the MD, geez. I didn't want to spend a lot since I'm currently on a budget. After already spending the $23 on the race, I couldn't/didn't want to dish out much more on a costume I actually have to run in as well. Gaga is super popular this year (although my friend KD started that trend last year), but there is no way I was dishing out $30+ on a costume that will probably be out next year. Seriously...I spent at least 30 minutes (I honestly think it had to be close to 45) in the Halloween store and came out some some cat ears and tail that I'll still not happy with. I just don't have the will to make something this year. Looking at all the fun costumes though makes me me want to dress up this year. More time for me to think up something super creative and awesome for next year :)
