The BlogHer 5K & Tutus for Tanner

With BlogHer ’10 just around the corner, we’re looking forward to the 2nd Annual BlogHer 5K Fun Run. And this year, there’s a fun twist – we’re hoping you’ll join us in supporting Her Bad Mother‘s nephew Tanner by running with a tutu on.

We started Tutus for Tanner back in March and so far, we’ve had many Shredheads run races with their tutus on in his honor, and so we were so pleased when Shannon from Mom Improvement thought it would be great to encourage BlogHer runners to do the same.

If you’re attending the conference and are interested in running and/or walking the 5K, visit the BlogHer 5k Fun Run page for more information on how to register.

And we’ll be posting links to shops hopefully offering discounts on tutus for you to purchase and wear.

Or, you can do what I did and make your own tutu.

[Note: I used thicker elastic and shorter tulle so that mine would stick out and not hang down and bother me while I was running]

Finally, if you’re a sponsor or know someone who might be interested in sponsoring the 5k race, please drop Shannon an email. We’d love to be able to gather folks for a Carb Loading dinner the night before, or even just a Caff n’ Carb breakfast after the race.

    I am so excited that Shannon has incorporated this into the run! Yay Shannon!

    I was planning to wear one all along, but now that there’s going to be more of us? so awesome!

    I’ve already picked out the colours I want for mine, I’ve considered making it already, I’m that excited about this! LOL

    Umm my anti-spam word is Jillian how freaky is that?

    Anyways what I really wanted to say was I am SO excited about the BlogHer 5K and, more specifically wearing a tutu whilst running in NYC. I’m going to be bringing Little Miss as well who will also be tutu’d!

    Can’t wait!

    How fun to run with a tutu on. I wish I lived closer or I would most definitely join in the run with you all!

    I’m really looking forward to this! It’s been my motivation to get moving again and get back to running (oh, who am I kidding – slow jogging, really) again.

    And tutus are easy to make – I’ll proudly wear one and might make some extras for anyone who forgets theirs.

    You know what would be awesome? A Tutus For Tanner running shirt. I wish I’d had one for my last race, because no-one asked why I was wearing a tutu. Seriously.

    Also, I have an alternate way of making a tutu…I posted the directions on my blog. It’s simple and holds up really well!

    Have a great time at blogher! I wish I could go!
