Beach to Bay Relay Marathon

I spent this weekend in Corpus Christi, TX!
I woke up at 4:00 IN THE MORNING to run a relay marathon!
I know, not how you want to spend every weekend but it was lots of fun.

The marathon requires 6 runners so some of my cousins and I got a team together. While we do "train" a little, it is more about being together and of course the COSTUMES!

Last year we won the costume contest so we had to bring it again this year.

Our team name was Running Wild. Our costumes were a little something like this:

Plus ears.

That hideous picture made the local newspaper with a caption that read:

"Margo Shanks from Waco waits under the JFK Causeway during the 36th Annual Beach to Bay Relay Marathon Saturday. Her team was called Running Wild and each team member had ears and animal print shorts."

These are most of my team members.

We had a huge fan club with us. About 20 others came out just to watch us.
There may be more pictures to come.
