Fitness Snapshots

The lovely ladies of DC have fitness snapshots as their Friday five topic and I thought it would be fun to share photos from some of the races we have run over the years.  Of course these are fun races where we dressed up in costume, and most involve the most magical place on earth!

In February of 2011, we ran our first marathon at Walt Disney World after training for about 5 months.  It was a day of excitement and alot of terror at least from my perspective!



October of 2012 we ran the Wicked 10k in Virginia Beach dressed in our Minnie outfits.  It was a cool morning and it was great having Christine's friend Jamie enjoy the race with us and then meeting Krissy afterwards.




Picking out a race costume for the inaugural Dumbo Double Dare challenge was fun and when Christine suggested "Tweedle Mom" and "Tweedle Daughter" for the half, I was excited.  Sewing is a hobby and it was a challenge creating the costumes for this race.





Christmas is my favorite holiday and running a 5k with a Christmas theme doubles my race fun, especially when I was allowed to create elf costumes.  In November, we did both the Wine and Dine Half marathon and Jingle Jungle 5k through animal kingdom in these crazy outfits!




My most favorite race ever with Christine had to be the culminating race of the Dopey Challenge, the Walt Disney World Marathon.  We had already run a 5k, 10k, and half marathon on the three prior days and this would be the ultimate challenge.  Our shirts were themed on the race, designed by Christine and we had an absolute blast slaying the Dopey Challenge!  


Less than a mile to the finish!
Thanks to Courtney, Mar and Cynthia for hosting another Friday Five linkup.  Please check out their pages too for more Fitness snapshots!

  2. Pam, I LOVE these costumes! Y'all are so creative! I always find myself taking pictures of those who wear costumes during races; unfortunately, I am not very creative and have a tendency to stick to "boring" race outfits. I admire your spirit and thank you for sharing these pictures! Great post!
