This week's theme: Happy Halloween!
Funniest signs seen at a marathon:
- Run like a zombie is chasing you."
- "Mortuary ahead....look alive!"
- "The end is near." (Sign held by man dressed as the Grim Reaper at mile 21 of the Marine Corps Marathon, on October 31, 2010)
Choose your costume carefully...
No wonder diabetes is epidemic...
Americans eat nearly 25 pounds of candy, per person, on average each year.
That's scarier than a Freddie Krueger flick.
Freaky book titles
Need a book on festive uses for duct tape for Halloween? 101 More Uses for a Dead Cat? (Sadly, this makes me wonder what the first 101 were?) Or a book on Minnesota's natural resource: ghosts?
Look no further than the Weird Book Room at Abe Books.
Nightmare on Run Street
Kristin tells a ghost story (a ghostly injury story) that I'm sure many of us can relate to.
More things to look forward to on October 31st:
American confectionery manufacturers produce about 35 million pounds of candy corn each year. That adds up to 9 billion candy corns - or about 30 kernels per person in the U.S. If laid end-to-end, the candies would circle the moon nearly two dozen times.
Best running-themed jack-o-lantern:
Quote of the week:
"On Hallowe'en the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothing can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Hallowe'en fun."
Happy Friday, friends!
