Patty, Erika, and April host Tuesdays on the Run, and this week we're posting about running in costume!
If you've ever looked into a Disney race, I'm sure you've seen plenty of runners in costume. I will say that the only time I've run in full costume was at my Disney races. For Tower of Terror I was Ursula, for the Princess Half Weekend 10k I was Anna, and for the Half I was Elsa.
Usually, I tend to run in theme instead of costume.
This was for a Tunnels to Towers race, which is of course very patriotically themed.
This was a Reindeer Run 8k, a tutu with foam decorations. I will admit that I took the hat off most of the way through and just put it on for finishing pictures. It got way too hot!
This is the SparkleSkirt HotChocolate for a Hot Cocoa 10k. (P.S. If anyone is selling HotChocolate in a medium, I'll take it!)
This is a Shamrock Run 5k.
This was for the RunTheBluegrass Half Marathon which was raising money for Boston Strong, and had a Boston bombing survivor there as well.
I usually tend to try to dress somewhat to the theme. Small plug: SparkleSkirts makes this so easy and comfortable. All of the skirts you see are SparkleSkirts, there are SparkleSkirts shorts under my Ursula tutu, and I believe a SparkleSkirt under my candy cane tutu. I can't run without them, and I definitely wouldn't be able to do costumes without them! They make a great cute base for anything.
Keeping it comfortable is definitely necessary for costumes. My only problems have been getting too hot - my Santa hat, and my Elsa cape. I just stash my extra pieces in my SparkleSkirt pocket, but that's just me.
What should my costume be for Wine and Dine? I haven't started planning yet!
