When entertaining the idea of a running costume make sure you think about the comfort of it while running the distance of the race. I usually wear a little something even if it is just a Team Sparkle skirt for runDisney races. I made the mistake of asking my 2 year old what I should dress up as for the Disneyland Half Marathon 2012. She told me Rapunzel, so of course since I’m a half crazy mama I did it and wore very heavy hair and a lizard on my arm. My daughter LOVED it though so it was worth it. Always test your costumes before you wear them for a race. Take a test run in them to make sure they stay put and there is no chaffing. My daughter has now told me I should dress as Alice In Wonderland for my next race. I am going to try doing a practice run in a blonde whig so I can get an idea if it is possible for me in a race. I would love to hear about costumes that my fellow half crazy mamas have worn. Happy running!
I decided to share with the world the knowledge I have gained while figuring out mamahood. Welcome! I will share all that I know about being a mom, staying active, traveling with a small child and anything and everything else that comes up.
About me, I am a female who is a smidge over 30. I am a mom to a beautiful, crazy, amazing, bossy, hilarious, smarty pants daughter who is currently 2.5 years old. We travel A LOT. I have found a love for running primarily half marathons, with an occasional full thrown in. 13.1 because I’m only a HALF CRAZY MAMA. Get it? Ya, I thought so too.
I struggle with keeping my sanity, finding enough time, keeping the house clean, finding new recipes to cook, getting motivated to run, my penmanship, 2 year old tantrums, products that don’t live up to expectations, b*tchy flight attendants who think my daughter will automatically cry, miscommunication with my husband, potty training, and the list goes on. This just means that I am a good mom, person, wife, and friend because I can admit it. I will never say I have it all together because no one ever does, even those moms that look like they do. I will just offer some helpful suggestions on how to try to overcome some obstacles.
Peace, Love, and Run
Half Crazy Mama
