Ran in the Harpoon Octoberfest Road Race this weekend – and they had a German Costume Contest as part of the race. I couldn’t resist, so I rented some Lederhosen and my sister-in-law and I took 1st place Male and 1st Place Female in the costume contest. The prize was a backpack, a 6-pack and eternal fame. There were awards for running the race fast as well – but it’s far easier to rent lederhosen than to run a 5k in under 20min. The weather was perfect and the Octoberfestivities following the race were very fun. The kids were having fun almost the whole time – especially dancing to the German Polka Band.
I got a free bumper sticker and brautwerst just for “looking the part” as well.
