Halloween Trick or Trot-Race Recap

So first off, imagine my surprise when I worked to get the TRR crew for this race and found out the “tricks” are not hookers.  That is embarrassing (sorry for the TRR solicitation lady, but you WERE dressed in your slutty nurse outfit).

Best Costumes: Richard Simmons, Rubic’s Cube, Marge and Homer Simpson, Slutty nurse, slutty butcher, slutty teacher, slutty nun, slutty cat (awesome band name “Slutty Cat”), slutty vet, and slutty funeral home director.

I am always amazed at the “firsts” that come up in running; I remember the first race I ran (Run-Shunga, Council Grove).  I was shocked at the people running the course twice, or running prior to the race.  That seemed crazy, well Saturday I was hoping for more miles to gear up for a race in November, so I ran 2 miles to the start of the race. I guess I am now in the “crazy” group.

Also “first” Chris Yates, Jenn’s fiancée’ ran with the race with us.  I am guessing Chris is very fast, pretty sure he never left second gear.  Interest note, Chris is a former Navy Seal, he has killed 13 men just this year! (kidding)

Oh yeah, we also took “Dirty” and “Smelly” or Max and Paco as you may know them. I wasn’t sure about taking them, as the race said no dogs, but I figured a 5K with 300 entries, costumes, and hookers would be okay with two dogs.  They were good, Paco ran with me and Max ran with Jaime.

The weather was nice, and fine course, it actually is along a route Scott and I run regularly when training. Brad Fanning, Jenn Siehndel, Russ Thomas and Jaime Thomas also ran.  Proud to say the following PR’s:

  • Jaime
  • Russ
  • Jenn
We are looking forward to a few more races before it gets too cold.  As always come out and join us, we would love to have you run with us, cheer us on, or throw stuff at us!


  1. Welcome to the crazy running crowd! Sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. I think Chris Yates is a guy we all should know. Never know when you might need a Navy Seal to have your back! Great to see you all racing together :) See you soon for 13.1!
