I think the saying goes “There’s a first time for everything”. This evening was a first for me at least. The first time I have ever wore a dress. Now I know what your thinking, Joe Geronimo wearing a dress, pretty frightening. Especially that I am a full fledged representative of Man Caves LLC. However today was different, I was able to show some leg and get out and run the 16th Annual Red Dress 5K in support of the Crime Victims Center.
This was not an officially timed event but more of a fun run. As you all know that did not stop the competition between the dresses. Me personally, according to the clock at the finish line PR’d the 5K at 20:21 beating my last time of 21:16 back in April. Hey I’ll take it.
There was a lot of lipstick, blush and well just plain old fun. Honestly I was skeptical of the whole dress thing but in the end I had a blast.
Afterwards my wife and I went to Ebishura Sushi Restaurant in Vestal, New York for a bite. I had the fried shrimp tempura along with the beef short rib ramen noodle bowl. My wife had the same noodle bowl and found it to be just a weeeee bit more spicy than she likes. I on the other hand loved it! In the end I made it up to her with a trip to Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt http://sweetfrogyogurt.com.
