That's a wrap!.....And Disney Race Outfits!

We are heading back to work today after 11 glorious days off for holiday vacation! I'm not sad at all though because in three days we will be headed to Florida to run the Disney World Marathon ( and Goofy Challenge for Lacey).

Over the past few days we have enjoyed reading about how everyone spent their holiday and their accomplishments for 2015.  We didn't really do a look back per say, but we did create a race scrapbook of all our races for 2015

So remember all those things I wanted to accomplish over holiday break? Well, here's how that went down.

Haircut- yes!

Nails done- Finally got my toes done, fingers are still up for debate!

Cleaning and organizing the hall closet- Big fat NO on this one but I did clean out and organize an upstairs closet, so I am pleased with that.

Read my magazines- I am happy to report that I did read one Better Homes and Gardens magazine cover to cover and I successfully completed the crossword puzzle in the July issue of Women's Running ( see I told you I was way behind on my reading).  I was hoping to read more but I'm sure there will be some snow days in my future and I'll dig those magazines out again!

General Housework and Laundry- I feel good about this one. I cleaned several times and even have my Christmas decorations taken down. I wanted to make sure my house was back in order before I left for Florida.

One thing that was not on my list to do over holiday vacation (only because I REALLY thought I would have done it before the holidays) was put together our race outfits for this weekend!

Jasmine running costume

Lacey will wear this Jasmine inspired outfit for the half. I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out considering that we put it together with things we found around the house. Yes, we've had the idea for a while but we only knew that she had the top and I had the bottom. Talk about waiting till the last minute to put everything else together!

Lacey and I both will be wearing this outfit for the Mickey marathon. I have to be honest in that I'm not loving this outfit.  I had an idea in my head several months ago and have not been able to find the correct shirt so this is what I came up with. Although this looks like the same skirt we wore last year, it is not. This one is actually red dots and last year's skirt was pink dots. Not very creative but unless I come up with something else in the next day or two, this is it.  Actually I'm thinking about even ditching the running skirt and wearing shorts EXCEPT I love the pockets that the running skirt provides. It's much better than running 26.2 miles with a running belt.

What do you think of the outfits? Tell us something you did over the holiday! -M


We'll also be linking this post up with the gals from Tuesday's on the Run.

  1. Cute outfits for the race ladies, and best of all, it they consist of running clothes instead of being a costume. I only wore a costume once for a 5k and it was tough to run in. Good job on tackling some of your to do list around the house. I have a list to do this week since I don't leave for Disney until Friday. Hope to see you both over the weekend.

  26. So excited that marathon weekend is almost here for you! I love both outfits--your outfits are always the best! I also had a long vacation but am pretty sad it's ended, ha ha. I did manage to go through years and years of old cooking magazines to flag recipes, which was a big win for me. Have a fun time at WDW!!!
