I was getting ready to run the Warrior Challenge as part of Williamsburg, VA’s Run for the Dream weekend festivities which included running a 5k Friday evening, 8k Saturday morning, and a half marathon Sunday morning when oh Captain our Captain gave me my first ever Shenanigan challenge – to find a celebrity! OMG how cool would that be to find a celebrity and get a selfie with them! I was totally down and couldn’t wait to get running!
The 5k was miserable and hot but I did find this cutie and thought surely she has to be in movies or on the latest Disney channel show!
During the 8k i was totally on the lookout for any celebrity to complete my Shenanigan Challenge!
I did meet a local celebrity – he is the most awesome Police Officer EVER because he totally pretended to arrest me with handcuffs! I heart this man so much – I ask a cop at every race and he is the first one to agree to it! I have no idea why I want to be fake arrested but it makes a great picture LOL
We ran through the most beautiful parts of Historical Williamsburg but it wasn’t until the end when I found this kid who must be an Angel sent to give me my medal!
Afterwards at the post race party where we received Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches (Holla!) and awesome hydrating beer, I met this guy who claimed to have been on the news recently – total celebrity right! I don’t think it was because he poisoned anyone either…
Of course you can’t deny the celebrity status on this guy!
Still not sure I had found the celebrity I was tasked to find to complete my Shenanigan Challenge, I sought the advice of our Forefathers before stuffing my face at Dog Street Pub. He assured me the half would be awesome and I would find my Celebrity!
So morning of the half I was confident I would find the ultimate celebrity and I had my posse ready to help me complete my Shenanigan Challenge!
It didn’t take long for some of my posse to start questioning whether I could do this..
We did run into our favorite Disney Girl Meghan and stopped to have some drinks – I think the bartender was famous…oh wait no that is just No Facebook Having Steve!
Alas it was the end of the race and I didn’t meet anyone I thought qualified as a celebrity. Before I got too broken up about it I realized I did take a selfie with a celebrity – ME! I am Brittany Bear-Brown AKA Queen B! And I had multiple medals – Holla!! Shenanigan Challenge: COMPLETE.
This Shenanigan Challenge was SO much fun! That is what Shenanigans is all about – putting the fun in your run and it is so much more fun when you can enjoy a race with good friends and good beer!
