Marathon to Mom: How to dress for runDisney!

Alright y’all. It’s official. I’m in training mode. I still haven’t settled on a fall half marathon, but I have two in mind in either mid November or early December. After that I’ll have a little over two months to get ready for the Glass Slipper Challenge! Since that is a 5K, 10K and half marathon on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I’ll need to work on running 3 days in a row. I think training for a fall half will really help me ease back into running before I jump into GSC training!

Since last Monday was a holiday, I didn’t blog. I was pretty lazy…but I did get my run in! So here are my workouts the last two weeks. I’m proud to say that I got all of my runs in and even went further than planned on one!

RunDisney Costumes Past

Now anyone that has been following A Balancing Act for a while knows that I live for runDisney. I ran my first Disney Princess race in 2011 and was completely hooked. I thought I’d share some of my better runDisney costumes.

If you’re planning on doing a runDisney race, the first thing you’re probably thinking is what am I going to wear?! Costumes and runDisney go hand in hand. As runDisney has become bigger and bigger, costumes have become crazier and more elaborate! I like to think that over the years mine have gotten a bit better too. My first few years I rocked a tutu and a tiara, but I wasn’t a specific character. By 2013, I started to up my game.

2013: Queen of Hearts

Red leggings {Walmart}
Tiny Tiara

2014: Cinderella

Blue Nike Tank
Blue tutu
{I added ribbon & sparkle tulle to create the effect of the sides of Cinderella’s ball gown}
Black ribbon choker
Black Sparkle Sweaty Band
Black run crops

2015: Olaf

White Nike Cold Gear
Black leggings
Olaf Hat

2016: Snow White

Blue Champion Running Tank
Black biker shorts


Santa hat {cut off ball}
Santa beard {cut off mustache}
Red Champion Running Shirt
{Used my Cricut to iron GRUMPY letters on}
Black running shorts

For cuteness factor, here’s mini Snow White with us!

So there you have it! My runDisney costumes past. Now I have to think about what I want to be for Princess Weekend this year. I need 3 costume ideas.

Any thoughts or recommendations as to what I should be? 
I’ll be running with two of my girlfriends, so any group costume thoughts?
