So I got dragged round the shops on Friday by my very own MAMIL to purchase some pipe insulation, dowelling, silver paint, cotton wool, an Alice band and a plastic wineglass so he could have a bit of a Blue Peter moment with his fancy dress idea.
This year's marathon theme was science fiction. We do have a fair few costumes already, being the sort of geeks who have been known to frequent sci fi conventions in the past, but none of them would be exactly comfortable for running 42kms in, and having learned his lesson from last year's idiotic plan of running in plate armour, he chose a wiser course this year and made this:
We watched the whole marathon go past the start and got pics of some great/bizarre/downright weird costumes, like this:
I think this guy took Mike's "most uncomfortable costume to run in" prize:
Nice touch with the underpants here:
Not sure about these guys, Space Rats from Blake's 7, perhaps? ;-)
Leia's really let herself go these days...
Star Fleet officers like to wear drag too.....
During the race, we went off and had some lunch, but decided to pass on the 16€ menu:
But I did try some of the beer!
Oh and whilst we were away for the weekend, guess what? Tari escaped again. How does she know....???
