No Halloween race in your town?
Why not get some friends together and hold your own?
In years past, a local gym hosted a Halloween 5K in Tallahassee. But the gym closed down, and that was the end of the race.
So this week, our friend Michelle, pictured below, planned a 'Ghoul Gathering - Zombie Run' and invited several friends.

The group was made up of fourteen ghouls, zombies, and assorted scary monsters. DG and I opted for Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum costumes (recycled from when we ran the runDisney Enchanted 10K). We did a Halloween themed 4 mile run/walk at 'Zombie' pace.

Magnus joined us - in his shark costume.

Guess who won Best Costume & Runner Up?
And there were cute little finisher medals (Halloween themed AND reflective)!
Yep - Magnus got a finisher medal too.
After the run, we took over the patio at a nearby restaurant, and the Halloween party began.
Michelle brought buckets of candy,
And goody bags for all.

DG and I also got prizes for winning Best Costume.
It was a great way to celebrate Halloween!
Have you ever planned a themed run with friends?
