The Baltimore Marathon/Costume Parade

I went to the home of Rebecca and Christopher Bruce, who both graduated from Goucher College in 1992, last Sunday. Their row house on Guilford Avenue in Charles Village sits right along the 23rd mile of the course for the annual Baltimore Marathon.

Several Goucher alumnae/i were running in the marathon, so the Bruce family invited neighbors, friends, and other Goucher students and alumnae/i over to cheer those runners on.

I got some great shots of my fellow Goucher people, but I couldn’t help but snap photographs of the ridiculous costumes that many of the people had on.

I can’t imagine running 26.2 miles, let alone in a Mario outfit or a skin tight, one piece, green spandex suit.
