Groovin' to Run - Tulsa Run October 31, 2010

For the Tulsa Run, we dressed up in the mod 60s era, Go-Go Girls to be presice. I run with some very creative people and they plan the costumes way in advance. We already have our costumes for next year, but I am getting ahead of myself. Earlier in the summer, one of us saw these cute dresses at Belk's that looked like they'd be perfect for mini dresses and then we would add boots. So here we go, brainstorming about all the accesories. We made the white boots that fit over our shoes, I was amazed at the care and perfection that Carmi had to make sure that the boots fit well, didn't fall down and were shiny enough. We ended up glueing clear tablecloth covers to white vinyl to make it shiny and firm enough. I sewed more the week before the Tulsa Run than I had since I made Halloween costumes for my kids. We had such a blast at the run. Chris showed up looking like John Lennon to complete the package. So many people gave us the thumbs up and it was so fun to see a tired runner look up at us and get a big grin on their faces. The weather was great, chilly and a little breezy, but, I prefer chilly to sweaty. I enjoyed looking at ALL the costumes, Kathy looked adorable as Little Red Riding Hood and Sloan was a Beautiful Snow White.

Now it's time to hunker down and taper for Outer Banks Marathon and Blackbeard's challenge...and more costumes!
