So many, many, many yards of tulle later my Mom, sister, and I completed the famed tutus! It really was easy once we got it all cut out. We used a tutorial that I had found on you tube. No sewing involved!! I have pictures of just the tutus. I'll post them later with a tutorial!
There is just something fun about running in a tutu! You can't take your self seriously when people are yelling, "I love your tutu!" to you (as you pass them...hee hee!). They were a big hit and so was the race. I ran with Em and we finished in 25:24! Pretty respectful for our first race together!!! More than anything we had a blast!!! We finished and then turned back around to find my sister and nieces. They weren't far behind but my sister was running with one on her back while pulling the other along! I grabbed Maya (the back rider) and we took off for the finish! The girls finished their first race ever and I couldn't be prouder of all of them! My sister now has 2 under her belt and I am proud to say she was planning her next....hello I think we have a runner here!!!!
Funniest quote of the day that my brother-in-law overheard, "I just got lapped by some lady in a blue tutu!!!" I'll leave you with a bunch of pictures from the day! It was so fun and one that I can't wait to do next year! Also cool meet-up was when I ran into a childhood friend there! I have been following her blog of her son but it was so great to see her and her beautiful family in person!
