|I'll explain the ninjas later...|
We, as brides, grooms, a cupid and a priest ran Runapalooza- the Jersey Shore Relay Marathon. We had two teams- each runner takes a part of the 26.2 miles that spans from Seaside Heights to Asbury Park NJ. We had a little fun with the costumes. After all, what good are my sewing skills if we can't stir things up a bit?
|My husband makes a pretty.... uhmmm... interesting bride.|
|So does our friend, Eros.|
My sons were all on my team. Imagine! A whole family that runs! My older two were grooms. My sweet baby was our Cupid. Both teams had a blast taking photos throughout the course. We got some great shots! Here are just a few:
|A not so subtle shot while waiting on the porta john line.|
|Last year's Superman took the vow and became our priest for a day.|
|Most of For The Love Of The Run Team #2|
|Hand off from one bride to another!|
|My oldest son handing off to me.|
My husband took this shot through the windshield of the car. Great unexpected effect!
Catherine crossing the tracks. She's a newlywed too! Married last year... to the priest!
I swear I am not a walking commercial, but I could not help but tell a few people about the Instead Softcup Challenge. Even though Evofem is compensating me for the work that I am doing, I'm not the type of person to go around pitching stuff. However, I had the pleasure of running alongside a woman who was splitting this race with her husband (awesome, right?) and I told her about the Instead Softcup Challenge when we started talking about how much race registrations can make a dent in your wallet! She had never heard of Instead Softcup, and hopefully she is reading my blog and signing up! After the race, two of my teammates asked me about the product. I offered them samples and told them about how Instead Softcup can make period days seem like totally normal days. My husband and kids actually took turns wearing my Softcup visor during the race. (I wish I took pictures!) After making two vests/bowties for teammates in 25 minutes, rushing out to drive to the start, and seeing my oldest child off, I finally had a little time to be in full regalia:
