    The witching hour fast approaches. Think of a creative costume for Halloween, one with bare feet, preferably (but not required), and get out there and enjoy this silly holiday. (See the rules below to get some ideas of how this contest is run.)

    Post updates, photo evidence, and final results to this thread.

    Contest begins at 12 a.m., Sunday morning, October 26, and ends at 12 a.m., Sunday morning, November 2, based on your local time zone. Results must be posted in this thread by 5 p.m., Monday evening, November 4.

    The person with the most points at the end of the weekend wins bragging rights and can sport a cool new siggy declaring themselves "WINNER of the 5th Annual BRS Halloween Contest."

    Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!

    Aw man! We hosted a Halloween party at our house on Saturday night!
    However, the party did last until well past midnight, so technically I can count 10 points for "Attending a party in costume barefoot",
    but I only had 2 drinks after midnight, so that's 2 more points. (Would've been higher if I could count the whole party!)
    Add 3 beers at the Cleveland Browns stadium Sunday afternoon - 3 points.

    Add in 6 points for running 3 barefoot miles on Monday.

    Total so far = 21 points!
    Game on!

    Altra Olympus counts as minimal shoes right :)

    I would say that's a big fat NO. I realize that Altra makes a minimalist line, but this shoe is not minimal. Anyone else have a different (or same) opinion?

    Actually, Altra quit making their minimal line as far as I know. I think they found a lot bigger market for those that wanted the zero drop and big toe box, but still wanted some padding... Yes I know they don't count, but I ran a marathon in them on Sunday, so that would've been a lot of points! I guess I should've worn the Skoras...

    Congratulations Janson, on the marathon and the Halloween contest! Great barefoot costume.
    (You should've probably gotten some extra points for the cute kids' costumes, too)

    Okay, so next year I am so going for this...:p
    I've got my strategy ready:
    In addition to a good barefoot costume and attending parties, I need to:
    1. Run more
    2. Drink more
    3. Take pictures

    See you next October...

    Congrats Janson.

    I had a 91 mile week but only 15 miles in sandals, 0 barefoot:( At least I went to a Halloween carnival barefoot.

    My daughter was so embarrassed.

    My drink totals were quite high with the World Series and the party at Javelina, but I am not going to list the total. Don't need the links to AA thank you.
