Umstead: Run or Not Run

Umstead Marathon sign up is this week.  I am still battling residual injuries from Ridge to Bridge, and I had originally decided if I still wasn't able to run pain free the week sign up opened, I would pass on this year's race.  At the same time, it is on the short 'bucket list' of local races I want to do, so if I don't sign up and then recover, I will have missed my chance.  Regardless, with 12 weeks to train, I know I won't be at 100%.  Which gives me the opportunity to cross something else off my bucket list - run a marathon in costume (needs to be something I can still run in...), so as to avoid any desire to actually try to run competitively.

So the first question is: do I sign up or not?  

And if I do, what costume am I going to run the race in?

Last year was "Year of the Bat" so Batman would have been an excellent choice.
