You've seen 'em. Those few runners who choose to run in costume, making a daunting task such as a marathon even more formidable.
Why do they do it? Do they have all their marbles? Does the extra attention they get give them a mental push? Do they simply enjoy putting a smile on others' faces? Whatever the reason, our spirits are lifted when we see these costumed runners (unless we are being passed by a by said costumed runner, in which case we are too busy being humbled by the experience).
Let's take a look at some of these kooky runners in costume...
Thank you to all of you crazy runners who inspire us with fun costumes. If you can run 26.2 in an uncomfortable get-up, we can run it in our moisture wicking running clothes!
