Dirty Duo meets TuTu Trouble

So I've been absent for a while, but things are happening. I promise. Recently, I made some TuTu's for a race. I know it sounds crazy, I'll explain. I also made some sweet shirts for the same race. I've started working on a bedroom re-do that I promise to share as it progresses (it's moving slowly) and I've been rehearsing for Cinderella. Way more fun than I have time to have. :-)

The tu-tu's I made following a similar pattern to this one. Except I was lazy and just tied knots in the elastic. However they were awesome. As you can see it the following pics. As you look at the pictures, also notice the shirts. It's just some sequins and fabric paint, but I think they really speak about our team goals. My good friend Becky and I decided to enter a race called the Dirty Duo. It was way more fun that I can handle (literally, since I've spent the past 2 days walking like an 85 year old). Part of the fun is the costume contest so of course we went all out. Our team name was "TuTu Trouble" and boy did we have fun.

The race consists of six miles, half of which you run and the other half bike. At each mile marker there is a challenge/obstacle course that you have to complete before you can continue on with the next mile. At the end, you and your partner have to be together and crawl through 40 feet of mud to finish the race. And boy did we get muddy. Becky and I had so much fun. And as a bonus, we got 5th in our age group. It took us 56:51.6 to finish the race, and we are already planning our costumes and strategy for next year.

Team 163 aka TuTu Trouble definitely brought it this year. Watch out Dirty Duo 2012, we'll be back for you.
