This year, we ran for Team Alan.
While this was a “run where you are” event, I didn’t receive any pictures/times from 5ks out in the world, but you did something more important — you donated. When I announced the event last week, Team Alan still needed $1500 to make their goal. Now that number is down to under $800. I’m told this last stretch was largely from people who donated during our final push here, so if you donated at least $25 and I owe you a signed book, please let me know via my contact form.
In Denver, we had a team of five runners and one dog.
Here we are celebrating with a beer after the finish line, and I have to commend our runners who weren’t used to the altitude and/or had too much fun celebrating Halloween the night before.
You might have also noticed that I shaved my beard. You know that Halloween fun the night before I mentioned? Check out my costume:
Know who I was for Halloween? Leave your guess in the comments below.
Thanks again to all those who donated or helped spread the word!
I’m going to guess that you were Westley from The Princess Bride for Halloween? (Or, should I say, The Dread Pirate Roberts?)
Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! Although all I got the whole night was Zorro
I have seen that movie way too many times (if there is such a thing) to not know that was Westley :P. Really, it was that sword that clinched it. Handle was very similar, which is awesome… Yeah. I watch that movie quite a lot.
Well, I have a yellow lab named Buttercup and a Siamese named Westley if that tells you anything.
That’s awesome 😀 I’ve always said that if I ever get an Irish Wolfhound, its name is going to be Fezzik.
