Ran a 5k in a dress and tiara!

Tonight was the Red Carpet Run.  This is not your every day 5K!  People dress up in prom dresses and evening gowns and suits & tie, tuxes, jogging strollers are made into limos, you see tiaras on many heads!  the race starts and finishes on the red carpet too! 
It was so much fun.  I found an old dress that I don't wear anymore but most of the dresses the girls were wearing were really fancy.  Some men had tux shirts and bow ties on with shorts and there were even a few full suits!
I was looking at the pictures from previous races on the website and saw that many women were wearing tiaras so I got one and some big "diamond" earrings to wear!
Soooooo, this is what I looked like:
What? doesn't everyone dress like this to run a race?????? 

It was fun!  Now I am going to be on the lookout for something fancier to wear next year!!
Upon crossing the finish line and walking along the red carpet waving and getting your picture taken then getting your chip removed by girls in prom dresses you were given a champagne glass (with champagne even) with the name of the race on it!!  They also passed out bottles of water too since it was a running race and was quite hot!  They gave awards to the top 6 in each age group and I was 6th!!  The age group awards are BIG "diamonds" with the name of the race etched on the top. 
I'm already planning for next year!!
Well, off to bed now.
