Since I ran a little over 26 miles yesterday I am taking it easy with some yoga today. It feels so good to s-t-r-e-t-c-h!!!
Pumpkin Oats… someone asked how I make my oatmeal last week and it’s been a while since I mentioned it so even though it’s not an impressive recipe, it works.
Right now because I’m lazy I have been using two packets of Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal – lower sugar version (or one packet if I’m having it with eggs). I cook that in the microwave and then add 1/4 cup pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, dash of salt, some kind of sweetener and heat again until HOT. Then, I top with nut butter and sometimes sf syrup if I’m feeling frisky.
RunDisney Costume Talk…
The Walt Disney World Marathon is this weekend! Sadly, I will not be running it as I’ll be somewhere far far away. But I love a good Run Disney race and I love dressing up for them.
I was Ariel for the Tinkerbelle Half Marathon a while back. My How to Make an Ariel Costume for running is that link.
I dressed up as Jessie from Toy Story for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in November.
That was the BEST costume choice because:
A.) There were not a lot of other Jesses.
B.) She had red hair and that’s a requirement for my costume.
C.) I have never in my life been cheered for so much! Spectators and the cast members especially screamed “GO JESSE!!!” when I ran by. I’m actually considering changing my name to that officially.
Anyway. The Disneyworld Marathon is this weekend and I wanted to share how I threw together my costume before the Wine and Dine Half Marathon.
How to Make a Jesse Run Disney Costume
- Red Cowboy Hat. I got this at a Halloween store.
- White shirt, preferably with collar. I got mine at Target, it looks like it’s meant for playing tennis.
- Red ribbon
- Hot glue gun, scissors
- Blue Sparkle Skirt (Plus whatever shorts or capris you like to run in underneath that.)
- Cow print socks
- Optional: Yellow bands for around wrists.
Cut ribbon and attach in “V” patter on shirt with hot glue gun. Optional: Add a design with ribbon.
Jesse running costume all laid out on the bed before the race:
The cowboy hat and cow socks can be expensive and hard to find but they make the costume! I was lucky enough to borrow socks from According to Kelly, but the cowboy hat was $$$.
Luckily, I really did keep it on the whole race and will hold onto it for Halloween or if I want to start a new life on a ranch someday…
You can get cow socks on amazon for $17.00. Cowboy hats are around $20.00. You can get them for 10 bucks if you can fit into a child’s size, but I couldn’t fit into a kids hat when I was actually a kid so there’s no hope for me now.
And now we all know what I’m going to be for Halloween
Question: Who has run or is going to run a Disney race this year?
