On the Boardwalk, Out in the Sun

A half marathon with a dash of pageantry, Starbucks, and shenanigans. This is the Atlantic City April Fools Half Marathon, in pictures.

    • Thanks so much, Shan! I’ll pass along the well wishes to Jay and hey, there are 7k and 11k races during the spring race (and 5k and 10k races that they hold in the fall too) – when you’re ready, let me know! <3

  1. I’m so jealous of those beautiful blue skies! You gals have too much fun πŸ™‚ My name would be Miss Match because of my lack of fashion savvy and since I usually run with the most obnoxious color combos ever seen.

    • We were a little worried because when we first got there it was 29 degrees. YIKES! However, it quickly warmed up and was very comfy to run. And YES! MISS MATCH! You need a sash. πŸ™‚

  2. We ran the April Fools 11K the day before. Although it was a great run on the boardwalk we feel ACMarathon organizers really “cheapened” things up from last year! Glad you gals had a great time. Your sashes were such a wonderful idea! So cute and how appropriate for AC!

    • Thank you Meranda! We had a lot of fun together – it was definitely the way to go with this race. πŸ™‚ I agree on things being a bit different than past years but that said, I’ve already registered for next year’s half.

  3. You ladies are amazous (that’s a combo of amazing and gorgeous, if you were wondering).

    It looks like you had a blast, and that’s really all that matters!

  4. Ha! Love it! Love the “Miss” sashes and the tiaras and the fun and the very best ending of all (empty bottle of wine)! Congrats on a fun weekend!!

  5. Looks like you had a great time! I’m happy the weather was nice for you πŸ™‚
    I LOVE your pageant names…very clever/cute!
    and running with friends it the best way to run a race!! πŸ™‚

    • The weather definitely held out for us – thankfully! Was a bit nervous when we arrived and it was a bit windy, especially right near the ocean. But it all worked out for the best! We have to run together again soon.
