Dopey Challenge 2017: 5K

20170105_035424 All four of us woke up dark and early (it was not even bright until after we finished running), and got ready for the 5K on Thursday morning. When we first registered for the challenge, I knew that the only race I could probably get Roswell and my brother to dress up for would be the 5K, so I immediately started thinking about what we could be. During an 8 mile treadmill run, I watched Hercules and I knew that was clearly going to be the inspiration for our DisneyBound costumes for the first race.  If you don’t know about DisneyBounding, I recommend checking out the DisneyBound queen Leslie Kay. Essentially, instead of a costume (because adults are banned from wearing costumes in Disney parks), you create an outfit inspired by a Disney character, place or even food! I pulled together a purple Megara outfit, we found Roswell a tan shirt and added tan wrist and  red head sweatbands for Hercules, and my brother wore all black and grey topped off with a blue hat for Hades. We tried to think of an outfit for my mom, but we ran out of time. Despite this, I was quite pleased with our group photo the morning of the race!
