You Go Girl JOIN IN!!

On Sunday September 26th many local female runners will hit the start line for the You Go Girl! Half Marathon & 10K HERE. The race is not is Seattle it is in Tacoma, WA. I know nothing about the course but I am EXCITED to run in an all women race. This will not be a PR race for me because I will be hosting TMB HERE and pacing her to her coveted sub 2 hour PR!!
I am truly looking forward to this race and to meeting all of the members of team "Will Run for Ice Cream." Our team captain Diana HERE has done an AMAZING job of keeping everyone in the loop on team runs and getting us all signed up before the price went UP.. I have sorta taken the role of the stylist for the race. I am sooo excited to see how many of us show up in the team uniform...
Headband designed by Deshler Designs HERE. FYI TMB has a Giveaway for Deshler Designs HERE.

Nike tank top can be purchased HERE and comes in a variety of colors. We are going with the Blue.
Pink Dots Running Skirt HERE. And of course some fun pink socks to finish the outfit.. FUN!!

That sounds like so much fun, and with such great outfits to boot! I wish I could do the race but A- Ha, that is way too far for me to run yet and B- we have races the previous THREE weekends so I promised the hubs one off. BUT I would still love to meet everyone (what a dream) so can non racers crash the bloggy meetup and just carbo load for no reason?

Thanks for posting our uniform. I hadn't seen the ice cream headbands yet, they are adorable!

Kathi Clarke said...

Cute uniforms!!!! Our Rally Girls team will see you out there on the course....but I don't think we can live up to those outfits, LOL! It's going to be such a fun race! Rally On!

This outfit is too cute! Do you mind if we use some of it for our race?

My mom, my sister, and myself are running a half & full marathon together on Sept 4th. We made a pact a few weeks ago that we wouldn't eat any ice cream until after the race. Wouldn't this outfit be fitting?

Cynthia O'H said...

You guys are going to have so much fun. I have my own little half planned for the 26th too! I'm still trying to figure out what to wear.

Kerrie T. said...

Can't wait!

marathonmaiden said...

That is a great idea! I might have to do something like that in my area.

Lisa said...

This sounds like SO much fun! I can't wait to read all about the race and dinner! Love the uniform too!

Alma F. said...

Hi Mel -
I'm registered for the 10k race & I have that tank top but I'm not officially registered as part of the team. Should I try to fix that at the expo?
Cute headbands! Will they be posted on Etsy soon?

Also, Becka from http://50halfmarathonsin50states.blogspot.com/
is using this race for her "Washington" race.

Will there be some sort of meeting location/time at teh Expo or pre-race/post-race so we can meet each other?

Let me know if there is anyone in Seattle who wants to do a run. I have Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun off each week.

ICE CREAM HEADBANDS:
I plan on making several ice cream headbands for the runners in the "You Go Girl!" Half Marathon & 10K. The ribbon is in transit to me and I will put them up for sale in my Etsy shop as soon as I get my hands on that adorable ribbon!! :-)
