We Go Together Like Peas and Carrots
I love to be active but I also love dress up, make people laugh and have a good time. So when a friend of mine and I signed up for the Grand Rapids Urban Adventure Race (similar to the Amazing Race but on a smaller city wide scale), we decided that we HAD to dress up. It wasn’t a requirement by any means lol. So we brainstormed and decided to participate and run as Forrest and Jenny from the movie Forrest Gump. It was a riot. Everyone died laughing at our costumes, but the best part was that as we were running and biking around and through the streets of downtown Grand Rapids, my partner “Forrest” was getting free encouragement.
Everyone would laugh and yell “RUN FORREST RUN!!”. And then there were the few who thought he was homeless with his giant scruffy beard. Forrest not only had a beard, but he had his classic hat complete with the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. logo, plaid shirt and short running shorts. Jen-nay had platinum blonde hair, and simple tank top, and the quick identifier of her name on front and the quote “we go together like peas and carrots” on the back. It was such a fun race, but even more so to dress up and interact with people all day!
