We all know a marathon is not complete without the fun runners in quirky costumes who put smiles on our faces as they go past in their regalia. Yesterday's marathon was definitely not devoid of persons in quirky regalia running the entire 26.2 miles.
Majority of those in costumes were actually attempting to create new records. E.g Fastest person to run with a cross; Fastest person to run as a framed painting; Fastest person to run as an elephant; Fastest person to run marathon as a Dinosaur; The possibilities are endless! The fact remain though that these runners, don their costumes, sweat it out, have fun in the process and raise money for various charities at the same time. Such noble acts......
I did cheer them on from my sofa as promised and this post is dedicated to them - see you all next year!!
