The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun!
It happened!!! It finally happened!!!! runDisney has officially announced new, in person races! Including Wine & Dine for this November. I KNEW holding onto my resort reservations was a good idea. Hooray!!!!!!
Now all I have to do is not have a nervous breakdown while wildly grappling for race registrations before they sell out. 😅 But then: celebration!
So much of my year revolves around joyously training and planning for these races; as silly as it sounds, I feel like I just got part of myself back. You know? I have something to work toward again. Something to run about again. Something to make race costumes about again!
How was that segue? Didja like that? ‘Cause, yeah, we’re gonna talk about my new race costume. I’ve been holding back this post out of fear that I would jinx myself, but now I can fly free!
I say “fly” because my new race costume has wings… and horns.. and a dash of childish delight! That’s right, it’s Figment!
That’s true, but this is the REMIX.
A: New extra-cute Figment ears with wings! (You can get your own pair in many Epcot gift shops but haven’t seen this one on shopDisney, yet anyway.)
B: New tie-dye purple running pants that will enable me to wear color while hiding sweat! (These are by Joy Lab and no longer made but I’ve seen many pairs on resale sites like Poshmark and Thredup.)
C: An orange sports bra! Okay, well, actually, that’s kinda hard to see. I may need to ferret out a running shirt with smaller straps, but then it would all depend on race day weather anyway. It’s a Victoria’s Secret bra I got secondhand but heaven knows they have more.
I’m super excited about this new, more exuberant, and hopefully more recognizable Figment costume. Here I am being extremely normal about it.
I am so so so so happy runDisney is coming back. It’s been a tough year for everybody, and this is just the inspiration we need. If I may be so bold as to make a request from you – if you’re not already vaccinated, PLEASE get the shot. We don’t want the Delta variant ruining everything again. Remember: with F-I-G-M-E-N-T, you can see things differently!
