Running in a costume.. Makes me wish I had a fun race that I could enter and dress up for. I would go as a running princess.. You could always be super mom had a friend do that a few years ago and it was super cute.
I have no idea what I am going to do yet. Of course I need to be able to run in it. :)
Wish I had a picture of my friend who did super mom she had a cape then wore leggings and a race type shirt that she put an S on. On the front of the cape she glued a hair brush and some other things us moms always have handy was really neat idea and of course wore running shoes.
I will be running the Snohomish River Half, too with my daughter Makenna who is 11. This will be her first half. So excited. I'm hoping the weather isn't too bad for us :) We are still working on figuring out our outfits. Good luck finding something.
How fun! I hope you guys have a blast.
Can't wait to see your costume! Are you going to packet pick up on Friday?
I don't think I can make it up there. Which is a bummer as I don't really want to shuttle...but oh well.
Just sent you my post for the virtual race. Hoping I sent it to the right email address. Let me know if you don't get it:)
Hope the weather is good, the temps look nice, but rain could spoil that a little! I suck at costumes, but I can't wait to see what you pick, good luck!
The Monster Dash around here gets every kind of costume you can think of...The guys as Q-tips were a major hit...white t-shirt, white tights, big ol, cotton heads...there are always brides, airline stewardess, pilots, witches, zombies, pumpkins, fairies, butterflies, ladybugs, and a group of runners were skittles....all a different color with a poor guy that even ran in the box cardboard cut out...he must have drawn the shortest straw. ha! (or be in the best shape ;-)Cheerleaders, bananas, elves, and santa(s) were a few others I saw too. Have fun!
I'm terrible with coming up with costumes so I've got nothing. Hope you have a great time with both races this weekend!
Any of those little costumes you get at the dollar store are great for running. i.e. devil ears and a tail, kitty ears and a tail etc. You could also get a tutu and be a ballerina. Or you could dress up al 80's retro fitness style or even Flashdance-y. Or, how about Elvis!?
Good luck!! Sounds like you have some fun races on the calendar. :) I can't wait to see what you decide for your costume.
