Fitness Friday: Fun.com Gorilla Run
You still have time to sign up for the Fun.com Gorilla Run before the price goes up. My husband and I are already signed up for this race because it is not your typical fun run. If any of readers know my husband, running is not his thing, it's mine. But this is not a "run" in the literal sense. Sure, you can run it, but you can bike it, roller blade it, skateboard it, ride a scooter, even crawl it I suppose but that would take a long time!
I am pretty sure my husband is going to bike it and I am thinking that will be my mode as well so we can be together, plus there is a strong possibility I may be running a half marathon in the morning (this is an afternoon run.)
The other part of this race is that you will be doing it in a full GORILLA COSTUME ($80 value) that you get to keep. But that's not all! You also get free food, drink and entertainment at the after party, free beer from the outdoor beer garden, a free bag of goodies and a banana (what else would you expect!) ALL OF THIS FOR $45 IF YOU REGISTER BY 3/31/14. It will go up by $10 after the first of April and will go up another $10 if you wait until Race Day.
I am not getting paid for promoting this race or even getting a free registration. I just think it's cool and want you to know about it and come race with me and my husband! Plus, be a part of a Guinness World Record for the most people dressed up in a gorilla costume in one place. Plus the money raised goes to support the North Mankato Miracle League to helps children with disabilities have the opportunity to participate in sports.
The race is on Saturday, May 3rd in North Mankato, MN.
