I am extremely excited to present the first review of an Etsy shop from my Disney Etsy Holiday Gift Guide! And not only do I have a review of an fantastic item for you, I also have a giveaway so you can get your very own Rock City Skirt 🙂
I was never the athletic type growing up. One of the most dreaded days of the school year was when we had to do the mile run, because I did not like running. I dreaded it. Fast forward to when I got out of college. I needed a way to exercise and had no money for a gym membership – so running seemed the obvious choice, though I remembered how much I had hated it back in high school. Nevertheless, I told myself I would start slowly – mostly walking, with some jogging thrown in.
And I realized when I wasn’t being forced to run for school and do a mile in a certain amount of time, it was actually somewhat enjoyable! I jogged several times a week before my wedding to lose weight, and then have been doing it (for the most part) ever since. And then I did something I never thought I would do. I signed up for a race. A Disney race, of course! I’m now registered for the Enchanted 10k at Disney World during the Princess race weekend next February.
There is nothing to motivate you like a Disney race! Of course, one of the most fun parts of the preparations has been deciding on an outfit. My favorite Princess is Belle, so that was a no brainer. But how to come up with an outfit that would look cute but also be comfortable to run in? When I saw Rock City Skirts, I thought it would be the perfect solution.
Sure enough, when mine arrived in the mail I was really pleased with it. It is well made, with an elastic waistband that has some give and take. That way if your running causes you to lose weight you can still wear your skirt! I love the material, and how sparkly it is. Perfect for a princess, and I know it will be great for a Disney race.
I also wore it out on one of my runs during the week to try it out. I put it on over my running pants, and it is so light that you can’t even tell it’s there. I was wondering if that would still be the case while I was running, and indeed it was. The skirt stayed put but was so light and airy that I didn’t notice it at all. You do have to wear shorts under it, by the way – the skirts are somewhat see through and rather short 😉
I am super excited to be able to wear my skirt for the Enchanted 10k in a few months! I will also visit Rock City skirts for future running costumes. They have lots of Disney inspired skirts, and even if you don’t see what you want there is a design your own option – so odds are good that Amy will make it happen for you! As they say, if you can dream it, you can do it 😉
