Ordered some cool stuff for the race today​

This shirt from Tee Digi

and this skirt from etsy seller DottieForRunning

So, I'm obviously going for a Princess Anna thing. Kathi ordered a skirt inspired by Princess Jasmine and Melanie ordered one inspired by Elsa! SO EXCITED! :dance3:

And in other news, I've decided to run the SW Darkside half in April - solo!

SO...... about that tutu....... it's a big NOPE. I will say, first, that it's absolutely gorgeous - exactly like the picture above and beautiful craftsmanship. But I put it on and looked at myself and all I could think was, "NO". I just look stupid wearing it. It's way too poofy and just not - me. It's really unfortunate because, like i said, it's so darn cute. We'll see how the other two "princesses" feel about theirs. Back to the skirt drawing board. Thinking I'll just go with a normal, non-poofy, running skirt in purple to match the Anna shirt above.
