They also had dj on the course blasting some pretty awesome music! After you crossed the finish line you were sprinkled with fairy dust and you received your medal. Then you were given water/powerade and a box full of food. Oh and of course, the medal was awesome!.
Each character seemed to have bulked up for their latest comeback.Past research has shown that seeing muscular figures can make men feel badly about their own bodies, similar to the way seeing stick thin supermodels can make women question their weight.But the same effect may not hold true for our favorite comic book characters.The study, published this week in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, suggests watching superheroes can actually increase males self esteem and might make mere mortals stronger.The 2012 DragonCon paradeAtlanta (CNN) Angie Dowling attended her first DragonCon with her father when she was 5 years old.
