Stepping across the Bill’s Beer Run 5-mile finish line Sunday, Oct. 25, at North Jetty Park, on Casey Key, were bumblebees, angels, Tinkerbells, grown men and women wearing nightgowns and diapers, fairies, policemen and clowns. Standing in the crowd after the race, we spotted Wayne Johnson, above, who was dressed as a member of the Blue Man Group, and stayed in character for the duration of the morning, never uttering word.
