Some of the event highlights were: discovering that the wigs stayed in place- a huge relief- but the front stickers did not; we used extra safety pins to keep them on...finding out that we most certainly could have and should have run in SHORTS (pretty toasty out there in our wigs and long pants)...and realizing that not everyone knows WHO "Thing One" and "Thing Two" are-but lots of people did, including an adorable young boy at a water station who enthusiastically shouted out: "It's Thing One and Thing Two from Cat in the Hat!!!"
We got these cool medals at the finish.
Putting our stickers on early in the morning! Snap was the official race photographer!
At the finish line we whipped out our orange crepe paper streamers to celebrate!
We sure looked like dweebs.
I've often wondered how Snap spent her time as the support crew while we were busy running. Usually she's managed to find a way through the police lines and such to be able to see us while on the course, but this race was impossible for that- so instead she took a tour of the Warm Springs Dam!
I have no idea what the photo below is.
Runners in Spartacus costumes!
Thing Two with the Mother of Thing One and Thing Two! Note Snap's GREAT WIG!
Thing Two waits in the wine line!
Thing Two gets her wine!
The girlfriends of the guys in skirts wanted our photos taken with their boyfriends...pretty funny. I think people were starting to feel a bit of the wine by this point. Not me, since I don't drink...I couldn't imagine drinking after running that far!
This woman said she was behind us- and she happens to be wearing a Thing One and Thing Two SHIRT!
Snap looked fantastic in her punk rock wig!
I got this a little out of order - here's our PRIZE for the costumes- a huge bottle of wine!
Thing Two displays our winnings!
