Next weekend is a race weekend that I’ve been looking forward to for over a year and a half now: Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend. I’m extremely excited about this race weekend for a long list of reasons, including the fact that I’ll be running the inaugural Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge – the 10k on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday. I’ll be dressing up for both races, and I couldn’t be more excited about my costume choices!
For the 10k, I’ll be dressed as my favorite Disney princess, Belle. The inspiration for my costume started when I received the Belle Sweaty Bands headband from my friend Kathleen in March 2015. I had just registered for the 2015 Wine and Dine race, and thought that I’d be dressing up as Belle for last year’s half marathon. Then we had to defer the race, but I’m excited to be able to follow through on my vision and dress as Belle for the inaugural Wine and Dine 10k. I was very excited to find the rose earrings on Etsy, as they’re a perfect compliment to the rest of my costume.
For the half marathon, I’ll be dressed as my favorite classic Disney character, Minnie Mouse. For my long time readers, you may recall that I dressed as Minnie for my first Disney race, the inaugural Disney World 10k, back in January 2014. I’m excited to dress as Minnie again, but in a different way. I came across the “Run Now Wine Later” tank in a Facebook group that I’m in, and when I saw how nicely it complimented the Minnie Sparkle Athletic skirt, I knew what my costume for the half had to be.
I’m incredibly excited for next weekend! If you’ll be at Wine and Dine weekend and you see me, please be sure to say hi!
