Throwback Thursday – Turtle Power!!!

Racing is always fun for me,  and some races are 100% about the fun! Last year my friend Christina talked me into running the warrior dash with a team.  I met one of the coolest groups of people – including the team captain, Pat who designed the most awesome running costumes EVER! TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES! 


Totally rad dude! We even had a cheering squad, complete with a Mini Ninja Turtle Mascot…


Ilana wondering how the heck she ended up with such a weird mom! Haha Just wait until you see the look of disgust on her face AFTER the race when I’m trying to chase her down to give her a big, muddy hug….


Muwahahahaha! We had a turtle down at the last obstacle so we all met her at the med tent for a team photo…


Luckily she was ok!! And Ilana lightened up once she got a giant turkey leg and a viking helmet!


The best part is, I’m running with the same group at the warrior dash next month! I’m soooo looking forward to it! It’s going to be hard to top last year’s costumes!!

Do you ever race in costumes? What was your favorite race costume of all time? (Either one you wore or saw at a race…)

Have a great weekend everybody!!

    • Thanks! It was a blast! We totally took our time – rolled around in the mud – took breaks to talk to people…laid in the grass…my daughter told me after the race we were “the slow poke turtles”! Lol

  1. Ahhh you guys look so awesome! What a fun idea!
    The closest I’ve ever come to a costume was my getup for the St. Paddy’s Day race. I will never run in a kilt again haha.
