As most runDisney fans know, one of the many exciting aspects of any race weekend at Disney is having an excuse to dress up during the races. I started thinking about costume ideas almost immediately after registering last Spring, and I’m incredibly excited about what I’ll be wearing this weekend during the 10k and half marathon.
For the 10k on Saturday I’ll be dressed up as Cinderella. I came across the “Will Run for Bling” shirt sometime last fall while searching through sale items on the Disney Store website. Upon its arrival, I knew that pairing it with a silver Sparkle Athletic skirt and a silver Sparkly Soul headband would make the perfect costume, especially since the Princess weekend challenge for the past four years was named the Glass Slipper Challenge (this year it has been renamed to the Fairy Tale Challenge).
For the half marathon on Sunday I’ll be dressed up as Snow White. For several months, Kathleen and I speculated that the theme for this year’s Princess Half Marathon would be Snow White since the movie premiered 80 years ago back in December. When runDisney confirmed that the theme was in fact Snow White, I went straight to work on putting my race outfit together, which is made up of a blue tank from Road Runner Sports that I already owned and the same yellow Sparkle Athletic skirt that I wore for the Wine and Dine 10k in November 2016. The only new piece of this costume that I had to order was a red bow headband from Sweaty Bands. Given that the current weather forecast is calling for it to be a hot and humid weekend, I’m very glad that I put together a warm weather friendly outfit.
I’m excited to fly down to Orlando tomorrow evening and to kick off the Princess weekend fun at the expo Friday morning. Feel free to follow along with the race weekend fun all weekend on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
