After my last race, I contemplated running in a costume for the sheer simplicity of finding myself in race photos. Looking for yourself among 700 other women with ponytails and blue running tops is hard when you're dressed the same way as everyone else. SUPER easy if you're the one wearing the giant banana costume. So I asked you guys to send me some photos of you in costumes during a race and I loved what I got! Check out these hilarious outfits worn during a race:
That ridiculously awesome M&M is Marlene from Mission to a(nother) Marathon. She ran like this for a whole 10 miles--and passed out M&M's on the way! My new hero.
So this may not be a real magazine, but Danielle is seriously worthy of any cover. This is her at a St. Patricks Day race, getting into the spirit! She's run a 5k in 22:25 and is signed up for an October Marathon. Check her out at Happy, Healthy, and Strong.
When I read about Kim running in ruffle panties for the OskKosh Half Marathon, I was prepared to laugh. She braved some tough weather with an amazing attitude and some cute underwear!!! Read about more of her races at Life in the Twin Lane.
Last, but certainly not least is Katherine from Forward Foot Strides. Holy Cow! Her costume is beyond great. Here is she dressed up for a Halloween run. Bonus points for a running/sleeping picture!
Has anyone else raced in costume?
If the logistics of actually running in a costume weren't the problem, what would be your dream get-up?
Obviously I want to dress up as the female Where's Waldo, but second to that I would love to dress up in a princess costume. I don't even really need a race, I just really want to dress up like a princess!
