Saturday was the most beautiful fall morning.
Tam, my husband Matt, and I headed to downtown St. Paul with 7,000 friends with designs on running the Monster Dash.
You get these really cool jackets when you run the Monster Dash.
They sponsor a half marathon, a 10-mile race, and a 5K. We did the 5K, and so did a bajillion others.
Many of us were in costume. We were Tinder (to honor Tam’s on again, off again Tinder experience).
It really was a fun run, with trick-or-treating, scare tunnels, and just a lot of great costumes to appreciate (not to mention the beautiful fall colors). We logged three 3.1 miles, and had all hit our fitbit step goals before noon.
And even though Bradley Traynor gave us heck for wearing our “finisher” jackets the day before the race, assuming that we’d just go to brunch and skip the run altogether, we got medals for finishing, and in our hearts we were winners.
Did you run the Monster Dash? What was the best part?
