There are some pretty sweet photos in the album of official photos from the "ALS Superhero Dash" 9 days ago. Here are some of my favorites along with some horrible ones of me and Henry:
The group of LEGIT costumes out there!
She's got the same batman shirt as me, but she has cooler friends.
The kids dash. OH GOD - DOES IRONMAN HAVE A WORKING ARC REACTOR BACK THERE?!?!??
The "legit" Captain, some Ironkids, and an awesome tighty-whitey superhero.
Just before the start of the 5K - I'm about 10 feet behind (the male) Captain America.
It looks like we're not even moving.
Now it looks like we're running.
This is the next photo in the album after the 2 of me and Henry.
The guy leading this pack is the middle-aged guy I noted I passed early on.
ALS Association Executive Director Jen (in the Wonder Woman getup).
More of the nearly 500 5K runners.
An awesome He-Man.
Waiting for the runners to do their lap around the lake.
Looking through the tunnel to the finish.
Scared them off the path. Oh, and sweet baby Jesus... look at my face.
Close-up of that last photo. There's the "vein of approval!" It approves of this effort.
But the rest of my face.......... dear Lord.
Running hard towards the tunnel.
Another gross close-up. Henry looks chill, though.
Headed to the finish.
Here's 2nd and 3rd running side-by-side.
Brette (Jen's hubby) was passed by Fat Luigi, so here I think he's checking
to make sure he won't be passed by Fat Mario.
Fat Luigi catching his breath post-race.
He-Man made an unlikely friend during the race.
A pretty sweet Wolverine. He's running WITH A CIGAR IN HIS MOUTH. Nice touch.
"Ugh... how much farther?"
"I don't know if I can do this..."
"Oh wait... the finish is just up THERE?!?"
Henry and I getting our 1st place medal from Storm and Wonder Woman.
Heading back to the car. Henry has his "stick guns."
