    I have never actually been to a marathon just seen pictures. How come some of the runners do dress up?

      They usually dress up to raise money for charity, I hope the heavier the costume the more they raise, some look impossible to run in 🙂

    Such a fun tradition! This year, for the Boston Marathon, they didn't let people in big costumes for security purposes – which people were fine with since it was all about protecting the marathon!
