Tammie Massie is an ultra-marathon runner who is just trying to spread some cheer in and around her Gaithersburg neighborhood. 

"So, I've been running as a unicorn probably for four or five weeks now," Massie said. "I got it for running marathons and ultra-marathons... but then after a day or so, I said 'I should run in it now.'" 

Massie is now posting maps detailing her routes on her “Running Gaithersburg Unicorn” Facebook page, so people can keep an eye out.
