Halloween Run and Costumes

I’ve mentioned it before, but I love Thursdays.  It means I’ve finished another work week’s worth of workouts (yea, rest day tomorrow!).  Today I was up early to run 4 miles, then a weight session this afternoon.  Is anyone else running in the early morn or the evenings freaked out a little this time of year?  I run the same streets as the rest of the year, but with all the spooky decorations in the yards, I end up doing quite a few double takes.  Luckily though, all the skeletons, zombies, and ghouls turned out to be fake and not real.

This Thursday happens to be my favorite holiday – Halloween!  I love the challenge of coming up with a creative costume.  This year though, I haven’t had a lot of time or brain effort to come up with a good one.  We’ll see what happens tonight though.  I’m sure I’ll recap tomorrow.

But for now, I picked a few of my favorites from over the years and thought I’d share…

The Zom-bee.  Get it?

So there you go.  Some more creative than others.  My fave is the McConaughey one – it looks simple, but it took a TON of work to put it together.  It paid off though, I won two costume contests that year!

What about you?  What are you going to be this year?  What was your all time fave costume?  Curious – Which of mine do you like the best?

    Those are belters!
    Love the Colonel. Mmmmmmm….. chicken……..

  2. I have to admit that I am very impressed. While I LOVE the Juno one, I honestly think my favorite is Hawaiian Punch, for whatever reason. I love alliteration!

  3. Oh wow! You nailed all of em. You would get so many props on the KFC Colonel in Louisville!

    • Oooh, I bet I would. I’ve also always wanted to wear the Dazed n Confused one in Austin (where they shot the movie), I bet I’d be a hero down there.

  4. Hahaha OMG you’re the best Halloween dresser ever. My faves are the colonel and Juno.
