Race Recap: Monster Dash 5k

It’s Halloween Time! What a better time to dress up in costume  AND dress your dog up in costume! As you can see below, Bella loves being in costume…or at least that is what I tell myself.


We had just gotten back from Italy the night before. I was worried I’d be too tired to run the Monster Dash, luckily jet lag was on the races side and we woke up at 5 am ready to hit the ground running. The weather was warmer than expected but it was still a lovely day! We thought our costumes and our secret weapon (the adorable mushroom) would take the cake! I love dressing up for races and this year’s costumes were an awesome Mario & Luigi & Mushroom combo.  And as the weather gets cool, I expect my 5k times to get faster!
