Throwback Thursday: Evolution of a Costume [or We Just Can’t Manage to Run Away from the #TinkTroopers]

Throwback Thursday: Evolution of a Costume [or We Just Can’t Manage to Run Away from the #TinkTroopers]

When people tell us their favorite of our many runDisney race costumes, #TinkTroopers comes up most often.  Ironically, this costume was a complete afterthought…a last minute idea that we were not completely sure would work.

10155531_10152845666326032_8639477094383021953_n11008478_10152845665831032_8952319874425556287_nIdeas for the Inaugural Disneyland Star Wars 5K (X-Wing and TIE Fighter) and 10K (C3-P0 and R2-D2) came quickly but we just could not come up with an idea for the Half Marathon that we didn’t think everyone else would be wearing.

We tossed around what seemed like a million ideas – none of which struck a chord with us – so we left for the race weekend with NO costumes for the half marathon.

As we sat in out hotel room that first night, we pulled up Amazon Prime and started searching “Star Wars”.

Part of our struggle was that this weekend had been the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend for the past several years and we were initially prepared with a list of potential costume for that race weekend.

10685323_10152845666536032_7605749322795512057_nAnd that’s when it hit us.

Why not pay homage to Tinker Bell and her race weekend that got the boot to a later date?.. WWTBD?  What would Tinker Bell Do if she showed up for the Star Wars Half Marathon?

So we went back to Amazon Prime and a few clicks later everything we needed for #TinkTroopers was on it’s way 2-day delivery to the hotel.  We picked up the package at the front desk the night before the half marathon – fingers crossed it would work.

Race morning we got dressed and couldn’t stop laughing.  WE thought it was funny and we were prepared to be okay if we were the only ones who got it.  Turns out EVERYONE got it.  Just goes to show you how impactful a simple idea can be.

#TinkTroopers have shown up in a number of places:

The Tinker Bell/Star Wars mash-up worked so well, we had numerous people ask us to wear them again the next year.  We didn’t want to repeat the same costumes, so we compromised by continuing the mash-up theme.  Year #2 was a Tinker Bell/Princess Leia mash-up – #LeiaBell.  It was fun wearing #AllTheBuns.

We’ll be back with another Tinker Bell/Star Wars mash-up for this weekend’s Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon.

Any guesses as to what we’ve come up with?..

Thanks for following along –

Perfectly Goofy Gail

Episode 25: A Conversation with Telemundo Star Laura Flores about her Partnership with Cigna en Español

In celebration of #ThrowbackThursday and the upcoming registration for the 2017 runDisney Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, we are excited to share our awesome experience with Cigna a Laura Flores at the 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend.

[NOTE: Registration for the 2017 runDisney Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend begins Tuesday 13 December 2016 at Noon EST/9:00 am PST]

*************************

The ladies of Run All The Races were thrilled when Cigna asked us to a conversation with Laura Flores.  Laura Flores is a Mexican actress, hostess and singer currently working with Telemundo.  She joined us at the 2016 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend as a proud partner with Cigna en Espanol.

As part of her Cigna en Espanol partnership, Laura served as an Achilles International guide for Richard Aragon during the Disneyland 5K as well as running the Disneyland 10K with 2 of her children.

We sat down with Laura after the 5K and learned how this star keeps herself and her family happy and healthy and Run Disney ready…
