Are you looking to dress like running royalty at your next race? Run like a princess at your next race, with a little help from your
fairy godmother friendly runners at Gone For a Run! Check out these easy steps to conjure up a race outfit as pretty as a princess, and race to your happily ever after!
Step 1: Pick a princess to dress up as! If you have trouble deciding, start with with one key piece and then build out your costume from there. I personally think starting with the bottom is best, since those tend to be more elaborate. Here are some ideas how a solid or patterned tutu can help spark your imagination, all available from GoneForaRun.com!
Step 2: Now that you know what princess you would like to dress up, it’s time to choose your top. Since you will be running in your costume, of course, it’s important to keep your comfort in mind, especially if it’s a long race. If it’s going to be hot and humid, I would recommend selecting a singlet or short sleeve top, but if it looks like it will be chilly, make sure you have on long sleeves. And above all, make sure the top you choose is made of out moisture-wicking material! Here are some examples of tops you can mix and match to help complete your royal look, all available here.
Step 3: Time to accessorize! Top off your royal outfit with accessories that will make you feel as fit as a princess! Some ideas include tiaras, arm sleeves, gloves, knee socks, headbands, running capes, shoe lace charms and more. Remember, as with the rest of your outfit, to keep your race conditions in mind. If your race is going to hit 80 degrees, you may want to lose those arm sleeves and gloves. On the other hand, adding on accessories is a great way to stay warm if the temperatures dip at the last minute, while keeping the spirit of your costume in tact.
