Quick Tip: Running in Costume


With Halloween being right around the corner, it only seemed fitting to offer my take on the idea of racing or running in costume.

Honestly, I don’t know how anyone does it.

You say it’s fun, I’ll take you’re word for it. But I’m not buying it for a second.

That said, I’m sure there will be many people suiting up tomorrow for some type of Halloween run. And with the Wine and Dine Half Marathon being right around the corner, Lord knows Disney runners are putting the finishing touches on their costumes as well.

For the record, I’ll be running my 10k on Halloween and the Wine and Dine Half dressed as a runner.

Because I’m old.

And I no longer know how to have fun.

Best Costumes at the 2015 Princess Half Marathon

Earlier this morning, my wife completed here 2nd half by running the 2015 Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World.

This was her first runDisney race, but if I’ve learned one thing from my 9 runDisney events it’s that there are always a lot of runners that rock costumes during the race.

And the 2015 Princess Half Marathon was no exception.

I wish I had photos of the costumed runners to go with this list, but I was too busy being daddy/cheerleader to take many pictures. I did get this one early on.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite costumes that I saw while we were spectating. Read more
