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

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…

Confessions of a Lapsed Costume Runner (or Thank Goodness for INKnBURN)

Confessions of a Lapsed Costume Runner (or Thank Goodness for INKnBURN)

Even the most creative runner can hit a costuming roadblock now and again…and this is exactly what happened to me when I was planning on what to wear for the runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.

The runDisney Wine & Dine 10K was the first race of the Inaugural Lumiere's Two Course Challenge

The runDisney Wine & Dine 10K was the first race of the Inaugural Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge

Work has been crazy busy and I would be traveling to this race weekend ALL BY MYSELF…i.e., Delightfully Dopey Kimberly would NOT be traveling to join me – she’s had the work and life crazies as well – and PhotoBomb Becca was caught up with work and her kids (but we did manage to squeeze in some margaritas).  California Kiley and I had a great idea for Mickey’s Holiday 5K and it turned out really cute, but that’s another post for another time…

I was staying off property with family AND had to be in Tampa on Sunday for work no later than 11:30AM.  Put that together with the unseasonably HOT temperatures scheduled for the weekend and I was plum out of ideas.  I rustled up all my INKnBURN gear and decided to figure it out when I got to Florida. As I mentioned above, the 5K was taken care of – but that still left 2 races, 19.3 miles, a Sunday time deadline, and a hot forecast to contend with when deciding what to wear for the rest of Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.

ME...I do actually RUN, generally for non-runDisney races, but this was FUN (and NO ONE recognized me dressed as a runner...).

ME…I do actually RUN, generally for non-runDisney races, but this was FUN (and NO ONE recognized me dressed as a runner…).

Initially, I had hoped to wear my INKnBURN Western pants and tech shirt combo (I had even packed my cowgirl hat and ordered a horse-on-stick) but it was just too darn hot for pants. This costume will live on for another (cooler) day.

Instead I decided to dress as a runner – turns out this is the ONE costume I can wear where NO ONE recognizes me… 😉  I pulled out one of my personal favorite INKnBURN combos – the women’s Ella singlet and women’s Bee sports skirt. It was perfect for the temperatures and I fluttered to the finish in 59:38 (which is pretty darn speedy compared to my “normal” runDisney 10K time).

Sunday’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon presented a unique runDisney challenge for me as I had to be

Meeko (Can you tell I was a little excited to see him?...)

Meeko (Can you tell I was a little excited to see him?…)

in Tampa early in the afternoon for an engineering conference I was running, so I had to REALLY RUN the half marathon to make sure I could squeeze everything in and still make the drive across the state.  As the runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon celebrates Disney’s Food & Wine Festival, which is held at Epcot, I thought it was the perfect venue for my INKnBURN women’s Kimono tech shirt and women’s Kimono sports skirt – I would fit right in as I ran by the Japan pavilion.

photopass_visiting_wdwrundisney_7853811759Feeling comfortable (especially in extreme temperatures) can make all the difference and I was able to complete the race in 2:17 and stop for #AllTheCharacterPhotos – couldn’t have asked for anything more, except to have had the rest of the ladies of #RunAllTheRaces with me.

I can’t say enough about the comfort and quality of the INKnBURN items I own – add in the fact that they are beautiful on their own or can be dolled up with a few accessories and make AWESOME running costumes (see my Harley Quinn costume from the runDisney Super Heroes 5K)…and, last but not least – they are made in the good ‘ole USA.

As the title of this post says: Thank goodness for INKnBURN!
