{TuTu Tuesday} Marathon TuTu

My friend and college roomie, Wilna, contacted me a few weeks ago with a very special request: She wanted me to make her a custom tutu for her to wear to her very first marathon through the 5 boroughs of New York City.

In Wilna's words, "I just need a cute, feminine touch to symbolize how much my confidence has grown since I started running." I jumped at the opportunity to participate in something so meaningful.

Here is Wilna wearing her TiTi's TuTu's on the big day.

I'm so proud of my girl, Wilna! Thank you for allowing me to be part of this unforgettable experience.

Wilna ran with Team for Kids, a non-profit organization that takes running programs into NYC schools and uses the sport as a tool for character building and leadership development. If you're inspired by her story, please take a minute to check out their site and consider making a donation.

Thanks for reading,
