Rebel Challenge Recap Part 2: Star Wars Half Marathon

The night before the Star Wars Half Marathon I did something I've never done before.

Picking out a costume for this race wasn't easy. I wanted to wear my Maleficent costume for the 5K (because I thought she might be on this course) and the Evil Queen costume for the 10K because I thought she might be on that course. But I had a feeling I wouldn't last more than a couple of miles in the Evil Queen Costume, and I was really starting think I'd need to swap my costume plans...
