Two things have been occupying my (little) free time: looking for shiny races and looking at shiny running clothes. Everyone has his/her carrot, and these things are mine.
I will proceed to inflict these on you periodically.
Austin Gorilla Run - next race 19 January 2012
I said I wanted silly in my races, and I think this may be it. Registration is crazy expensive because you get a GORILLA SUIT. Yes, the goal here is to run a 5K in a FREAKING GORILLA SUIT. (Registration subsequent years is much cheaper, as you will already have the suit. Unless you wear it out. Which you probably wouldn't. Because that would be weird.)
Proceeds support the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund.
