The Ghoul Gathering: a DIY Halloween Race

By Disneybrideandgroom
No Halloween race in your town?   Why not get some friends together and hold your own?  The Ghoul Gathering: a DIY Halloween Race  In years past, a local gym hosted a Halloween 5K in Tallahassee. But the gym closed down, and that was the end of the race.   So this week, our friend Michelle, pictured below, planned a 'Ghoul Gathering - Zombie Run' and invited several friends.

  The group was made up of fourteen ghouls, zombies, and assorted scary monsters.  DG and I opted for Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum costumes (recycled from when we ran the runDisney Enchanted 10K). We did a Halloween themed 4 mile run/walk  at 'Zombie' pace.
