Instead of an OOTD post, otherwise known as “Outfit Of The Day”, I’m doing an OFTR post, “Outfit For The Race”.
Due to the possibility of precipitation falling from the sky on Sunday morning in downtown Little Rock, I have two outfits ready to go.
The theme of this year’s race is “Epic”……and racers are encouraged to wear superhero costumes. Batgirl was the inspiration for this first outfit.
Mask: Grim Reapers//Batgirl shirt with cape: eBay//Running skirt: Skirt Sports//Calf compression sleeves: Zensah//Socks: Wrightsock Stride//Running shoes: Asics Gel Kayano 20
I’ve never actually worn a costume for a race before. I’ve worn crazy skirts or funky socks, but never a full on costume with a mask. Even if it doesn’t rain, I doubt I’ll wear the mask. I wore it for Halloween, so I feel like I got my money’s worth.
Here is my raining outfit with two shirt options…
Hat: Gift//Shirt 1: Nike (similar)//Shirt 2: RUseeN// Running skirt: same as above//Compression Sleeves: same as above//Socks: same as above//Running shoes: same as above
There’s only a slight difference. I’ll be wearing a poncho, too if it rains, but I haven’t purchased that yet.
Since it’s Thursday, and I haven’t done a “Throwback Thursday” post in a while, here’s a look back at some of my past Half Marathon outfits.
I don’t have one for 2012. That was the year I raced in OKC. My family was still asleep when I left for the race, so I don’t have a picture of my outfit.
Well, I better get packing…tomorrow morning will be here before I know it and I have a 6 hour drive ahead of me, but I’m excited!
Until next time…Happy Blogging!
When I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2007, I ran by a guy in a testicle costume. Yeah…that’s not a typo. The guy was raising money for testicular cancer. I didn’t know if I was hallucinating or what. Crazy sight. That was at about mile 6. And it was extremely hot that day. I’m sure he didn’t last long in that costume.
