Ready To Run: I DID IT! (Also Airplane Stuff)

OK, everyone, on last week, I went for my first off a treadmill out in the real world, 5K run. AND I made it within my time parameters of 13:30 per mile. Actually I made it in 13:09.

And I’d done a nearly 5 mile run a few weeks ago, but that was with my dad and he kept me on pace. (Oh boy did he…)

The good news about this is that I’m definitely able to run without the treadmill, which I was getting nervous about. Now I just need to start doing longer runs and keeping up that pace. On Thursday, I went for 4.7 miles, and of course immediately caught a terrible cold and now I can barely walk ten steps without hacking up a lung, so running is just right out.

But, I run my first official 10K a week from Saturday, so I have to get back to it. I’m a good deal less worried than I once was.

Planning Update!

I’m going to book my flights this week, complete with an early morning take off on Thursday and possibly an evening flight on Tuesday so that I can get some park time in on Tuesday as well…I dunno, we’ll see.

The Unofficial Guide To Walt Disney World 2017 came out this week and I’m reading it now. Granted, this book doesn’t change that much year to year, and I’ve read every edition since 2012, but I love spotting the little differences…

Cosplay Corner: Running Costumes

I don’t have a lot to say in this week’s cosplay corner, but since I registered for my race, I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pintrest and Etsy.

(Also, full disclosure I was behind on my Camp NaNoWriMo count yesterday, so I didn’t have the time or bandwith to put into a full cosplay post. I also didn’t closet cosplay at all this week for personal reasons. We’ll be back to your regularly scheduled crazy next week.)

So this is my Pintrest board for running costumes!

I really want to do Cinderella, because duh. But I’m also thinking Rapunzel might be fun.

I don’t know. There’s work to do.

But before that, I still have to finish Renn Faire (90% done, and need to pick a weekend.) and NYCC (also like 90% done) and Halloween (probably a repeat of one of the NYCC costumes.
