On Sunday, October 25 BU Tri ran the Superhero 5k in Cambridge, MA. Yes, we dressed up as superheros. Yes, it was amazing. Cambridge residents were pleasantly surprised to see real-life superheros running through their streets. By the end of the race, we fought off 4 villains and rescued dozens of citizens. Alright just kidding ... we only fought off three villains, but one of them was really difficult.
What actually happened was we all had a good time and ran a great race, despite the gloomy weather. Ellen (Wonder Woman), Dave (Thor - a very good one), Lindsey (Mermaid Man), Austin (Raphael - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle), Renee (Mrs. Incredible), and Emily and Kaylie (Powerpuff Girls) all competed. Ellen finished 3rd overall for the women, and Austin finished 10th overall for the men. Way to save the day, BUTTs!
