Wonder Woman: Cue My Theme Song



At the starting Line.
Today's SuperHero Half Marathon and Relay Race (I ran the relay with Phin) was a ton of fun. And it was great to be in costume because people cheered me on which really helped keep me going.



Here is the full view of my costume. I made the belt and cuffs from some spandex purchased at Stretch House in the Garment district, and ironed on stars to a pair of navy blue running capris and a Wonder Woman logo to a red tank top. The tiara started life as a Disney Princesses birthday party crown, which I spray painted gold and added a red star to. There were lots of people in costume...

Like this wonder duo - a female Superman and Robin. Seriously, these two could run - the are a blur.


And the Incredibles (also a blur). 

Oh look! I'm a blur too.
HA ha ha. Ok, I did not set any land-speed records over my 6.7mile leg of the race. But it was a real triumph for me to run that distance in a race for the first time. I'm feeling pretty super! 

I hope you had a super weekend, too!
