Ha…my sore feet and aching body tell me two things. I had way too much fun yesterday and I need to get in better shape if I’m gonna continue these sorts of escapades. What did I do you may ask? Well, I was a runner at the first ever Running of the Clowns in Old Town Pasadena. This video is the unofficial done by me version. I have pic from it as well in a flickr album.
The official video is in need of a sound track. Anyone know of a guitarist who could do a flamenco version of “Send in the Clowns”? If so drop me a note and I’ll hook you up with the author of the official video.
I’m sorry the uploader doesn’t work for me…if it did I’d have a snazzy pic for you from the GLA Improv facebook page to share with you. This is going to be a really fun event run through the alleys of Old Town Pasadena.
As a Runner you don’t have to be in that great of shape. The furthest we sprint at any given time is a block. You are to dress as the runners at the Running of the Bulls do…white pants, shirts and shoes with a red bandana.
If you choose a clown you have to be a happy friendly clown. Not like “It” or “John Wayne Gacy”. Costume materials are cheap and plentiful at the Dollar Store and 99Cent only stores.
The Mission is simple. We all meet at the Sierra Madre Villa station of the Gold Line before 2PM. Load your TAP card or buy RT fare totalling 3.50 for round trip. At that point we will be briefed and grouped…runners in one car and clowns in another. Catch a train to the Memorial Park Station by Holly Street and there the fun begins. Full details on FB.
