Chuck Norris ran a 5K backwards....

So he could see what second place looks like.

The Inaugural Chuck Norris 5K fun run was last weekend, down in Texas of course. Our Nun-chucks costumes were epic! Hundreds of people wanted pictures with us and of us! Even Chuck himself invited us up on stage to participate in the "best dressed" contest! Did we win? Hell no, the woman who did was 96 years old and in a wheelchair made to look like a semi-truck! How could that NOT win!





More than 5,000 people participated and we made a few local news stations. Hopefully we'll make the Guinness Book as well!



A few pictures from the run...





On stage, and yes, that's a little glimpse of Chuck himself in the background!



And last, but certainly not least, I got a high five from Chuck Norris and lived to tell about it!

The last time I was in Texas it was in the fall and it was sooooo very brown. This time it was like visiting the tropics! Lush and Green!

I’m beginning to sense you like Chuck Norris...Nun-chucks...that’s a good one.

I'll admit, I can take or leave most of his movies/tv shows.... it's the terribly terrific jokes that get me. Every. Single. Time.

Thanks, we stole the idea from a meme and wouldn't you know it, there was a girl wearing a shirt with that very meme on it!

Seem like Chuck's a down to earth guy!

He really was a big part of the race, way more than just lending his name to it. He waited until ALL of the participants had finished the race before he left!

TOO funny - I'm sensing a bit of an obsession with Chuck around this blog of late!

Everything is lush, green, and just about drowning around here.

Well, how often can you overindulge in Chuck? And live?

We saw a lot of flooding between Dallas and College Station, whole roads underwater!

Just goes to show you how big Texas is. I didn't even hear about the Chuck Norris 5K.

It was on the Texas A&M campus in College Station. What a pretty area when it's green!

Now THAT's creative. I need some of your costume-fu - I'm always stumped for ideas.

And yeah, you're lucky your hand is still attached to your arm after getting a high five from Norris!


TicklePlease replies on 5/12/2019 1:33 pm:
What's funny is how many people, upon hearing about him high-fiving everyone, said:

"Oh man, I bet his hand got pretty tire....... no, no it probably didn't!"

While everyone laughs at the Chuck beard .... I'm laughing at you as a NUN!

Looks like fun...but I would need a 1K walk.

I put the sex in sexagenarian


TicklePlease replies on 5/12/2019 1:35 pm:
I walked. I couldn't run even if Chuck was chasing me.

Yeah, we were snickering the whole time and doing the "sister" thing! Frighteningly a few people asked us if we were real nuns!!!!

As a Catholic school graduate, I'm wondering where your nun yardstick is. Of course, if you had one, your partner in nun costume might have to agree to let you them across the knuckles with it, for authenticity sake. The one theater class I took in college stressed that you always have to reduce the aesthetic distance between you and the audience.

[gulp]
Aaaaand...I just got hard.


TicklePlease replies on 5/12/2019 1:36 pm:
Darn... I should have consulted you first.

(someone gave us their actual foam nunchucks halfway through the race, they said we deserved them!)

You getting a high-five from Chuck Norris is one of the coolest fucking things I've seen.

Chuck Norris once said.........Nothing, But everybody cheered and saluted,
and they all lived happily ever after!

Great post!

Great costume. Come on though, you love the top quality acting on a Chuck Norris flick.
Also, Chuck Norris doesn't run a 5k, the 5k runs away from Chuck Norris.

I hate to admit I couldn't figure out the "Nun-chucks" without the visual aids. In my defense I've had two glasses of a pretty good 10-year-old cabernet. And I can be bloody dense. You two look like a couple of papal having a grand old time. Congrats, on everything {including surviving the high five}!
