Isn’t marathon running hard enough?

Mike over at Running Is Funny had a post recently about David Lawrenson who will be competing in the London Marathon on April 22nd dressed as a 24ft Blackpool Tower.

I’m eagerly waiting to see if he just wore the jeans to pose for the photo or – we can hope – he plans to run the race IN JEANS!

This picture and the comments made a few days ago by Kristen and Tracey gave me an idea for a new blog that I started this week: BestRaceCostumes.wordpress.com. Other than a few random blog posts out there, I don’t see that this has been done yet. Let me know what you think of it.
