Mark it Colorado

This last weekend I did the Denver Gorilla Run. A 5k race featuring contestants in gorilla suits, many of us also dressed up in costumes. It was one of the most fun races I’ve ever done. I did it with three other friends. We all decided to walk the three miles versus running in super hero costumes. ImageDuring the race we caught up to a group blaring music from a bike. At one point they burst out dancing Gangam Style. If you’ve been under a rock or just don’t follow pop culture in anyway, the link should give you an idea but imagine it all in gorilla suits. Throughout the race other gorilla racers were making the most of their gorilla time by climbing trees, street signs, park benches and other climbable objects. Everything is more hilarious when it is done with a gorilla suit.

The race registration covers your gorilla suit which you get to keep. The proceeds are donated to the gorilla conservation fund.
Another state down and well worth the trip.

I am a lot of things. Dog owner, runner, traveler, worrier, feminist, rap enthusiastic, but mostly a contradiction that only a child in born in the 80's could represent. This blog is not a manual, just a funny read.
