Three Things Thursday

1. Cupcake Marathon: The Cupcake Marathon participants are seriously running there butts off to get their miles in! Amazing job, you guys! :)

2. Running dress: Isn't this the cutest thing out there? Seriously, this running dress looks so much better than other running dresses out there (no offense, this is just my opinion...and we all know what that's worth...). Brand? Runningskirts.com. I'm in love.

3. Paris Marathon: Change of plans. I'd originally planned on dressing up as a superheroine. Most of you voted for the Robin outfit. Well....I'm letting go of the idea of dressing up as a superhero. Why? Well...in all honesty, I don't really consider myself as superhero material. Emz on the other hand would 100% qualify as superhero material (Uhm...24-hour treadmill run? Enough said.). Then again, I would 100% qualify as 'Queen of messing up race photos' material. It's Queen of something, right?
So...as for the outfit, I'm seriously considering dressing up as a Bonbon / Fancy chocolate. Because chocolate and moi are as tight as Paris Hilton and her purse dogs. And since I'm not planning on setting any speed records (even if I did plan on setting any, well...I'm not even filling in the blanks.). Fingers crossed that Runningskirts will deliver me the much needed Choco Fleurs skirt (to complete the outfit) in time! :) Any outfit ideas are more than welcome.

Ran paris 2 years ago. It was such a great race.. Have fun

I have some fears that dressing up as a chocolate might make you look also like, um, something other than chocolate. Like dog crap, specifically.

You can be a super hero if you want!

@ T: You crack me up! Or crap me up. Either way. ;)

@ Tri-James: Ah, that's sweet: thanks!

Let's see:

'Queen of running killer races
'Queen of looking sweetest while doing it.
'Queen of organizing awesome races
'Queen of cupcakes
'Queen of looking way too amazing at 6am
'Queen of looking way too awesome w/o make-up.
'Queen of Paris. [in my book] - they have a queen, right?! ;)

Ahhhhh, Emz! That's so sweet! What's up with you guys for being so sweet to me! I do NOT deserve that. :)

I got some stuff from RunningSkirts... it was delivered really quickly, BUT I got stung about €50 on delivery because of customs.
