I'm Nacho Libre At Saturday's Race

A few months ago in Mexico I bought a Nacho Libre mask for $10 - quite arguably the best $10 I ever spent. It would be a crying shame to let a $10 Nacho Libre mask just sit in the closet collecting dust, right?

I'm running the Utah Valley Half Marathon on Saturday and I've decided to go full Nacho.
  • $10 wrestling mask - check.
  • Cape from a Halloween costume when you were 6 years old - check.
  • Red shorts - check.
  • Too tight blue spandex shorts from the girls section of the thrift store - check.
  • Flesh-colored t-shirt to wear underneath cape......Houston, we have a problem.
Currently I have no t-shirt to wear under the cape. I was hoping to avoid reliving the nightmare of shirts and skins in middle school PE, but I'm willing to do what I've got to do.

I'm eating ice cream and candy like crazy to pack on a few pounds before Saturday. That leaves me three days to transform myself from a nerdy, skinny geek into THIS.......
Question: Is Nacho Libre a great movie.....or the greatest movie ever?


  1. BEST IDEA Ever!!! I'm not sure I could run all those miles in a mask, but if you can do it, go for it! I think it's awesome. Good luck with that flesh colored t-shirt.....hmmm...not sure you are going to get that to work out for you, but here's to hoping, Can't wait to see pics!

    Good LUCK!!!

  2. I love it! I just hope you don't overheat with the full mask on. Good luck!

  3. bahahahhaha. im going to be real sad if i dont see you on saturday! good luck!

    1. I don't think you'll have a problem with that. ;)

  4. bahahaha! I love it! Good luck with that weight gain and I say go shirtless for sure. Gotta take this serious right?

  5. You will be very easy to spot! Looking forward to seeing this costume in real life!!
    I say no fair if the cape makes you run faster :(

  6. Ha ha ha. You will be awesome! Can't wait for the photos.

  7. I support this endeavor. I will have to find you at the starting line on Saturday!

  8. I hope you have run a successful half (successful because of the finishing time and the outfit).
    Cannot wait to see the pics.
