Falling on Halloween, the Superhero 5K is not so much a race as it is a costume party that stretches the length of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I’m running barefoot today, as I have in more than a dozen races since Labor Day. Often this attracts attention…but today I don’t draw a second glance as I run past witches and warlocks, men and women from Krypton, and…amazingly…a large fish!
I went to college and worked for many years in Cambridge. During that time I bicycled hundreds of times from MIT to Harvard. But never did I enjoy those few miles as much as I do now, running in my bare feet alongside a talented guy who is juggling–
as he runs.
Come! Run with me now…
(I took this photo, and the others below, while running.)
All right! Let’s get to the good stuff–an HD video that puts you right in the middle of this race. Go ahead! Click the ‘Play’ button below. (And be sure to view the video in Full-Screen, so you’ll see the race in panoramic, high-resolution.)
Were you at this race–and if so, what did you like best about it? What could be improved?
(If you weren’t there, I hope these photos and HD video gave you a taste of the race…and I hope I’ll see you at a race next week.)
