If you have to go to a Halloween party and you have no costume, here's a quick idea: Wear a warm-up suit (headband is a nice touch; pin a number to your front) and carry a big bowl of pasta - you're a New York City Marathon participant doing the carbo load! Or you could wear shorts, tank with a number pinned, and a cape of foil and be "post-marathon"; have a spray bottle ready so you can be sweaty.
