This is my friend Katie Mihlak, who is one of the best photographers I’ve ever met, and a fairly new runner. Katie is doing her first half marathon — the Disney Princess half marathon next week. (No, she’s not the “newbie” I wrote about in my Just Write column today.)
She was also involved in a group that was raising money for an organization that helps those recovering from human trafficking and she told her Facebook friends that if she hit her goal, she would put on her Disney Princess costume and put a tutu on her faithful running partner, Buffy, and run through town.
She made good on her promise yesterday (yes, in that freezing weather) and she posted this photo on Facebook with the title, “You can dress her up, but you can’t take her out:”
Here’s a prettier, though much less funny, picture of Katie & Buffy. Nice legs, princess! Good luck on your race!
