Race Review: Awesome 80’s Run (2013)

Awesome 80's Run

The amazing people over at Superhero Events have done it again! We had a blast at last year’s Awesome 80’s Run and this year’s event was even better. The 5k (no 10k this year) is the ultimate fun run complete with music along the course, tons of creative costumes and plenty of photo ops. The Rose Bowl is a great location and the event was organized and easy to navigate; easy line for packet pick-up and t-shirts, plenty of vendors/booths, we scored free parking and DID WE MENTION THE SWEET MEDAL AND T-SHIRT? (Check em out below!)

No Sleep… Til Pasadena!

Deanna, Erin and I pulled off the dude look (Beastie Boys if you can’t tell – and yes, that is actually us and not teenage boys) and wore jeans… yes jeans… for 3.2 miles in extreme heat. Now THAT’S dedication. Our crew member Laura pulled of a Slash costume very well (she was lucky she got to wear shorts!) Needless to say, dressing up like something we don’t usually do was really fun. Superhero Events always puts on a great race and this year’s Awesome 80’s Run was no exception. “Like” the Awesome 80’s Run on Facebook!
