Wicked 10k

The fourth annual Blue Moon Wicked 10k race time was near. We had one last night of costume preparation accompanied by a carb loading dinner. Compliments of my dear friends Luke and Thao!

Now it was time for our costume reveal…

Once our bellies were nice and full we had Gangnam practice.

I headed home for rest and to catch the most up to date forecast for race day! Hurricane Sandy was approaching Virginia Beach….WINDY!

I woke to cloudy and gusty conditions. Evidence of Sandy was clear. But we were on to run rain or shine!

Psy is ready!

We started the race and began our dance through the 6.2 mile course. With several flash mob attempts, walking breaks, water stations stops, and severe wind conditions….it took us a little over an hour to finish. One thing is for sure. This race is named appropriately. WICKED indeed! The past 2 years have been windy and crazy running weather!

A glimpse of sunlight came out at the finish.

Then we headed over to a well earned post race party and beer! This year we received Blue Moon Wicked 10k tumbler cups. Love the race swag!!! Thanks J & A !

Did Sandy impact your workout plans?
