My plan was to take it nice & easy. A couple reasons why:
3. I was in costume. Sorta. Not a full costume, but Goldilocks & I found some killer $1 bunny ears at Walmart that were too good to pass up. Added to this, we made some clever signs to pin on our backs. It was a big hit:

The ears were kinda a pain to keep steady until 3-4 miles in when my hair was nice & sweaty - gave it a little grip. Let me just say that there is nothing so gratifying as passing a ton of people when you're in costume and they're not. Plus, on an out-and-back course, it's a huge boost to see the smiles on people's faces as they catch sight of the ears. You can't help but smile yourself.
Ever run in costume or get a boost from someone who did?
