So no run for me today – work wins again tonight. Instead we are having a relaxing night in watching The Fox and The Hound on Netflix. My husband has never seen it so I obviously had to change that! Anyways, when I came home today I had a package waiting for me: part of my Disney Princess Half Marathon costume! I realize that the race is 6 months away, but it’s my first half marathon and I’m getting really excited about it. It’s more fun to think about the costume right now instead of how many miles I have to run. Can you guess who I’m dressing up as?
I’m not the kind of girl to run in a tutu, and there’s not many princesses that don’t wear dresses. And when my mom mentioned that I loved Ariel as a kid, I knew she was the perfect choice for my costume! I bought these pants off eBay for $3.75!
They’re scaly! (and shiny too!)
I’ve never worn anything quite as ridiculous as this in public, but there will be 26,000 other girls wearing crazy stuff with me! I may have to give these things a test run on the treadmill sometime soon. I also have to figure out the top half of my outfit, but I’ve got plenty of time for that!
Have you ever run a race in costume? Was it fun or did the costume slow you down?
