  Monday Morning Mirth  

Because, in general you don’t get the chance to see
25,000+ almost Nakid Guys running their tutu’s off, I bring you some
Hunks from RaceDay: Chicago Marathon 2004…

…as seen from my camera position at the corner of Fullerton and Canon Dr, Mile 6; a guy in a Leopard Print Thong & BowTie combo has just passed but I wasn’t fast enough on the draw. OMG! ChicKnits predicted Animal Prints were BIG for Fall 2004 and Boy Howdy, were they ever! I got the above shot after I recovered my senses…

ChicKnits close personal friend, Clark Kent,
decides to run in full Big & Tall splendor…

The Chicago Marathon is a Global Event and attracts celebrities of all kinds: the San Diego Chicken makes a special Guest Run…

Last but not least, my favorite guy
of the Chicago Marathon 2004,
a Guy Named RAY…
Right on Ray~!

DISCLAIMER: it’s been 23 days of straight clock-punching with/no days off for this chiquita, so, I’m a little punchy2!

We go set up our camera position at 4am and encountered the MAGIC that is the Wee Hours’O’theMorning along the LakeFront…

    LOL! This is the 2nd year in a row, at least, that our friend in the leopard thong & bow tie & no shirt has been running the Chicago Marathon. And it’s just occured to me that he probably gets help with this costume, ’cause his name is boldly written across his chest! Gotta love CARL! Woooooo! CARL!

    Bonne Marie,
    The fact that you continually post to your blog, even when you don’t get a day off for yourself is admirable. How on earth do you do it?

  3. Bonne Marie says:

    Funny – I didn’t notice his NAME!!!!!!!

  4. Maureen says:

    Bonne Marie, were you so busy looking at his thong that you didn’t notice his name?? ;-)

    I’m so glad you are out at 4 am so I don’t have to be. Thanks for opening a window into a slice of Chicago I never see.
