This is a cool photo, but some realities quickly set in. Like what the inside of a Spartan helmet smells like after a 10K race.
Granted, this guy is in much better shape, but I sound like Fatty McGee after a mile and a half with nothing obstructing my breathing. Elite runners need ventilation, too, and I'm wondering what kind this mask affords.
This pic was taken from a road race in Richmond, Va., last weekend, and these competitors were in the race's "dress-up" (cosrun? cosjog?) division. Big ups to the guy in the Stewie suit, too.
