I'm pretty sure that by now you are all aware of my desire to mix fashion with running. It seems to work for me. I'm not speedy enough to garner attention for my running, but I get endless comments and media exposure for what I wear. So, of course I had to come up with a stellar outfit for the Disney Princess Half. And this is what I decided on:
This yellow tank from Nike
My yellow skirt from runningskirts.com
Yellow knee high socks, of course. And a tiara. Like a real tiara. The kind that beauty queens wear. (No pictures until race day. Something has to be a surprise.) Anyway, Dizzle had one and I figured that I would rock it. I mean, what would a princess be without her tiara.
And since you can't debut anything new on race day, I had to test it out. So, last night I ran a quarter marathon run at race pace (6.55 in 1:00:28) to see how it held up. Initially, I wore the tiara alone, but after about a mile, it was starting to slide and I was way too conscious of it. So I pulled out my visor and placed the tiara on the brim. SO MUCH BETTER. By the end of the run I had totally forgotten that it was even there. Well, except for when J came into the room, looked at me with a puzzled stare and asked, "You're running with a tiara on?"
Um, yeah. I'm pretty sure he thinks I am crazy ...
