Santa Runs Tacoma 5K Outfit

I like to dress up for fun running events...BUT when I am racing I also need to keep in mid comfort and nothing too crazy that will throw me off stride. Tomorrow I plan to play paces for the AMAZING Kim HERE...last time I attempted to pace her I kept the pace but left her behind :( Sorry Kim.. This time the plan is to push through the PAIN together and get her a coveted 5K PR. Lordy I hope my legs show up on Day #17...

My buddies are posting their outfits...

Kerrie HERE
Kim HERE
Anyone else???
I know Alma, Karla, Stacie, Jill and more are running....

So I thought I would join in the fun. I ordered a hat from a high school friend who knits, and plan to wear my Run Pretty Far shirt as a base layer... I had an old dryfit white shirt I wanted to re purpose.. I went to WalMart in search of puffy paint and ribbons, nothing good.. BUMMER!! Got home and realized my glue gun went MIA.. UGH!! I am not very artistic at all...but I have paint and paint brushes...so I got to work..

Front of my shirt...had to include Tall Mom in there.. The paint skills are rather Kindergarten but hey I will be running FAST..
Team Sparkle Skirt, Green Silence Shoes and socks from Target thanks to Zoe.. I had an idea...so I went with it..
This shirt may make people want to pass me more, we'll see. I just want to make people laugh.. Handwriting aside I think that I did OK considering I didn't spend a dime on my shirt..

  • Wish us luck!!

  • Are you racing this weekend?

Love that coat. I'm obsessed with that length on jackets lately. Maybe because they make me look taller? Techlazy.com Howmate.com Crazyask.com
