Thriller in Schiller 5K recap

Posted Nov 01 2012 8:58am
First of all, I hope every one on the East coast is safe and sound and life is somewhat returning to normal. As a true Today Show junky, I have seen some horrible images on the TV. I can’t imagine seeing the destruction up close and personal. 
 
Moving on!
Last Sunday I ran a 5K. I ran the Thriller in Schiller , a trail run a bit outside of Chicago. This is probably my third 5K ever. AND my first time ever running on a trail! AND my first time running in a costume!! Conclusion? It was awesome!!! 
 
First things first. The costumes. Kelsey , Lindsay and I decided, after LOTS of thinking we decided Coneheads would be the best idea ever. The question is… how do you make a Coneheads costume? On a budget of about $3? With only access to drug stores? 
 
The goal was this:
 
 
The process was this:

Nylon stretching… obviously

The result was this:

 
 
We got to forge rivers!
 
 
 
And be in weddings! Katie was a runaway bride and Alyssa was a replacement ref! 
 
 
And finished strong!
 
 
What a blast!!
Have you ever dressed up for a run?
 
XOXO,
Emily
