Never Say Never

I once swore I’d never run a race in costume. I’ve never begrudged those who chose to do so, but it just wasn’t me.

Well, I’m running the Disney Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon next month. And I’ll be wearing a costume.

I’ve not got it entirely together yet, but I’ll be going as Rey. I’m ridiculously excited and I plan to do photo ops during the race despite that that’s another thing I thought I’d never do and I hate getting my picture taken. I’m a serious runner, don’t you know?

My husband has some understandable concerns that I will try to run off with BB-8 if I spot him during the race. I told him that BB-8 wants to come home with us. I don’t think I have him convinced.

 I don’t know why he puts up with me. He did give me a BB-8 necklace for our 19th anniversary yesterday. He’s enabling my Star Wars mania. It’s cute that he thinks I’ve seen The Force Awakens only six times in the theater.

  1. How fun! I’m tickled you’ve decided to stop for photo ops. I don’t like doing it as me, but when I’m in my costume, at the Ren Faire, I thoroughly enjoy it. I’m so excited for you! Can’t wait for pictures!

    • Rey is such a great female character (a great character PERIOD), so I’m excited to dress like her. I got a few inches cut off my hair a month ago, so I won’t be able to quite swing her 3-knot hairdo, but I’ll make do with one knot 😉
