all consuming

I'm not sure if you've noticed but pretty much my every thought is about the half marathon and my trip to Florida. I check the Orlando weather about 400 times a day. I go over my packing list in my head. I have nightmares about my costume. It's pretty much all consuming. I can't get my mind off of it. So, I'm sorry that you have to deal with my obsessive compulsive rants for the next 19 days. Holy guacamole, 19 days.
Today's rant centers around the race outfit. A lot of people are donning costumes, dressing like their favorite princesses. I'm not sure I want to be a full on princess, but I do want a running skirt and possibly a tiara. I got that custom running shirt that I won from SUAR's giveaway a couple months ago. I designed it and fell in love with it for the race. But now looking at the weather, and after running yesterday in 50 degree weather and sweating my butt off, I'm starting to second guess that choice. I think I may want a tank top, but I don't really want a plain one, but spending a lot of money on something that will kind of be Princess race specific sounds silly.
I'm not sure I can pull of the tiara on the tush thing, but I do love it!

My current thought is to buy a green tank running shirt and make a funky colored DIY tutu and see how that looks. I'm also on the hunt for an inexpensive tiara, and a way to make the tutu sparkle a little bit without being irritating on the run.

Certainly not inexpensive, but definitely gorgeous

Perfect color green - and I love Old Navy's gear. Found here.

Now on to find mom's outfit! She wants to be like Cinderella!
