Since ALL of you have waited so patiently here is the BIG REVEAL of my Halloween Half Marathon Costume...
Here is a HINT.. OK a really really obvious hint. Once I had the idea of a Giraffe I perused the Internet for ideas and came across the most amazing and ADORABLE Giraffe hat made with love by Kristina at Tangle Wit Designs.
Here is some info about Tangle Wit Designs:

Check out her Websites below...you won't be disappointed.
This lady is not only a talented Artist, she decorates her packages and she runs.. Look at the cute newspaper clipping she taped to the package..
And the NOTE on the package. This arrived and Totally made my day. THANK YOU Kristina!! I will be back next year for sure!!
After I had the top done I found some printable fabric and designed the Image above...nothing too fancy but you get the idea. My WONDERFUL Mom played seem stress sewing on the decal and putting together the Giraffe print items to complete the ensemble.. and here you have it..
I am not a scary Halloween person, so I chose a cutesy costume. I am not sure if I will be able to run in the whole costume...so I have real running clothes in mind to change in and out of. Can I still win the Costume Contest if I don't run in it?? I am going to take my hat for a SHORT test run tomorrow.. imagine the looks I will get around the cul de sac...yes people it takes effort to reach my level of awesome (dork).
- OFF to eat and then play some Volleyball. I had the most wonderful 12.6 mile run today, more about that, announcement of the "Baby It's Cold Outside" Giveaway Winners and a Giveaway your won't want to miss tomorrow...
If you have any ideas to spice up my costume more let me know :)
