SWAG and I just cannot have that.
Brian and I loaded up the kiddos Thursday morning for a long weekend of ... camping. (I know, right?) I have lots of camping memories to share (memories I will treasure, I assure you) but I would be remiss if I skipped over the Red Carpet Run race recap. Because honestly? I did *not* work that hard on my outfit (i.e. I raided Lauren's stash of old dance costumes) to forego posting photos of all that fabulousness on the internet.
The Red Carpet Run is one of my favorite races. I ran it last year with Rose where she smoked me in the dress department. Here is a reminder:
|Blue sequined dress and a blinking feathered tiara? It's like I had no chance.|
When Lauren gave me her old dance costumes for my little girlies to play dress up, I quickly pilfered
The weather this year was pretty decent. It was in the upper 70's, sunny, and a bit humid. I was worried about my perfectly coiffed 'do coming undone because that's what it does, and I really needed it to stay in place in order to showcase the loveliness of my dollar store tiara.
|"Oh Hair, you are so funny! Stop it, Hair!"|
|Rose's student, Jackie, me, Lauren, and Rose. And did you catch that tagline? "For the young and fabulous." Obviously.|
We spent a few minutes posing in different locations. I mean, give the public what they want, right?
|Posed and sassy.|
|Candid shoe modeling. And I'm pretty sure I never shut my mouth. Literally.|
|Jackie's first race! I'm like a proud Mama Bear.|
|Bitter. The only word I can think of to describe how I felt upon discovering Rose broke out fishnet stockings for the race. She is some stiff competition, my friends.|
We started all together, and Lauren's husband David captured probably my favorite picture in the history of the world. To me this is one of those "how many things are going wrong?" pictures. So.much.win.
I ended with an official time of 31:01, with an average pace of 10:00 min per mile. Since I was aiming for 11:00, I need to work on my pacing. But I'm not going to pretend I'm unhappy with a faster time than I thought I would have. Because that's just stupid.
|Just steps from the finish. And in the middle of an exhale.|
What a great race and a fun time. I can't wait for next year!
