Angelina Jolie Runner

A big thanks to Deirdre for the picture of the costume she wore at the Manchester Road Race. Notice the multi-cultural babies, the “slit” skirt and leg pose from the Academy Awards, and the “I love Brad” sticker.

Do you think the costume was motivated by his race number?

A big thanks to Jo who shared her costume from the 2013 LA Rock ‘n’ Roll mini marathon. My response to her 6th place finish in the costume contest: “Only 6th place?! A travesty!”

Breaking Bad Runner (with an awesome backstory)

We have seen a Walter White race costume before. But I guarantee that you will love today’s pictures and back story submitted by my new favorite follower, Ben.

Much like Walter White’s career change, I didn’t pick up running till late in life, and it happened as a result of a medical diagnosis. In May 2012, I donated one of my kidneys to my friend Chris, who has diabetes and was experiencing renal failure. Prior to then my exercise routine consisted solely of occasional long walks. As as I prepared for the transplant, I signed up for my first Tough Mudder, and I made a promise to myself to make health and fitness a priority. I sort of kept my promise- I went from doing very little exercise to a little exercise, and my friends and I completed our first Tough Mudder in October 2012. I tackled the course wearing the puffy shirt from Seinfeld. After Tough Mudder, my friends and I really did make fitness a priority. In March 2013, I began running regularly. In addition to completing my second Tough Mudder, the Spartan Sprint, Rugged Maniac, Savage Race, and a handful of 5ks and 10ks, I also ran my first Ragnar Relay in the Adirondacks this past September. My friends and I paid homage to the show Breaking Bad by donning the team name Breaking Ragnar. (Race weekend coincided with Breaking Bad’s series finale.) I ran all three of my legs dressed in my Walter White outfit- green shirt, glasses, and tighty whiteys. One of my teammates, the one in the yellow hazmat suit (this is her running blog), purchased blue rock candy, which we divvied up into little baggies and distributed among our fellow runners. The costumes and vans were a hit. We got a lot of love from the other runners. I’m in the midst of preparing to run the Los Angeles Marathon (my first marathon) on March 9th. I’m not a doctor, but I’d be happy to answer any questions about being a living organ donor. Feel free to message me via my Facebook page.
