Calling All Denver-ites

Denverites?
Denveronians?
Denveristas?
Whatever you call yourself... I'm a comin'!

That's right. Miss Denver Running Gal and My Guest Blogger "Clinton" have bribed me with booze and fun to come out and run a little 5k with them. They don't know that they bribed me, but they will soon.

So what 5k you ask?
The Skirt Chaser 5K!

Check it out - it looks like soooooooooo much fun.
First off, instead of a lame shirt, you get a skirt (well, the girls do. The guys get shorts).

And if you wear the skirt, the girls get a 3 minute head start.
The dudes are in the back and have to "chase" the girls!
How freakin' fun is that?
Then there's a "block party" (Read: BOOZE) afterwards, including a fashion show. I think undies are involved in the fashion show. I love undies!

So anyone going to be in Denver in September????

Let's talk about race goals:
1. No time goals/ No PR: (I have never run in altitude and usually feel like crap when I'm there)
2. Look cute. (Get new Sports Bra and make sure abs are flat)
3. Lots of fun (Duh, anytime with my Denver Pal is fun)
4. Lots of drinks (Duh, again)
5. Make out with a boy (I seem to have good luck with the fellas in Denver)

That sounds great! And you shouldn't have any issues running a 5K in that altitude.

Xenia said...

Those are some great goals. Make out with two boys--one for me. :)

Charmaine said...

I'm gonna run that race. I'm already in a race against time...why not race against some runners?

Oh and...hey Barb? How ya doing?

Zombie Mom said...

I just read about that race in Running this month... I love running in my cute little skirts - which are not all created equal by the way..

What a totally great time.. and denver is so fun

Laura said...

I think I put Skirt Chaser on my list of races I want to run a while ago, but haven't heard of anyone actually doing one. If I'm still traveling then, maybe I'll come out!

Charmaine said...

Might be a bit late to start the "training".

I HAVE started jogging. Slowly but surely...and if the knees don't give out. You're what inspired this wacky change. And, of course, that "other" change. tee hee

Crystal said...

How freaking fun is that! I love it when they make these runs fun to do, makes you more excited to jump in there and compete, or in this case, be chased.

M*J*C said...

For Real???? That sounds like it's going to be so much fun!!! You'll definitely have to take pictures!!! Goal number 5 sounds the best!!!

Stephanie said...

That sounds like a ridiculously fun weekend. I like your last objective the most. You've inspired me to admit it when that is my objective...(I usually pretend it's not). But let's be honest. Sometimes it just is.

jen said...

How fun. I just read about this in the Runner's World article about Skirt Culture. Enjoy!

Christie said...

Damn. That does sound fun. I wanna go.

SLB said...

Denver, locks up your sons, there's a tonado comin' to town!

Victoria said...

"I love undies"-- and who doesn't, really?

Christine said...

I think my husband and I might join you. I was looking at flights today. Its going to be a secret vacation in which I'm not telling him where were going until we get to the airport!! We can meet up!!! How fun would that be???????

Steve Stenzel said...

YEAH!!! Have fun at the race!

Sagan Morrow said...

Thats such a cute idea! Thats going to be so much fun.

I love your race goals.

Susan said...

Fun fun!

RooBabs said...

There was supposed to be one of those in Salt Lake City next month, but it was cancelled. It sounds like a ton of fun, and rowdy, too. Have fun, and here's to meeting all of your goals!

J~Mom said...

They had that 5K skirt chaser here and I ALMOST did it. At the last minute something came up..it looked soooo fun!!

RedDaisy said...

I love running in my skirts! Can't wait to hear the gritty details, I am planning on running in Austin in October...sounds like it's going to be a rockin good time.

Viv said...

That is going to be a blast!!
If I was livin la vida loca I would surely want my skirt chased.
Any race that has a party on to the early evening=hook up party.

SJ Goody said...

Coincidentally, I WILL be in Denver on this very day... however, I will be at a trade show and bound by corporate events. Looks like a blast though!!

RunColo said...

I'll be racing as well.
