Signing up for a two day race event is double the fun, double challenge, and double the outfits, and racing in costumes has become quite the addiction for me! A race is not complete if I do not have the perfect running costume selected. Each race has a theme and I must adhere to that! I love getting creative either creating my own costume or searching the internet for the coolest companies that make them. I most recently completed the Inaugural Dumbo Double Dare, where there was a 10k on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday.
I had already decided that I was going to run as Alice for the Alice in Wonderland 10k and now needed to find the perfect race outfit for Sunday. Through the powers of Google I discovered iGlow Running, which is a company that makes running costumes out of sweat wicking material all by hand. I was very impressed when I read that on the companies Etsy site. Clicking through all of the beautiful creations I fell in love with the Snow White costume. I had always wanted to run as Snow White, but the complexity of creating such a costume had always intimated me and I always went for easier costume to create. I sent my measurements to iGlow and within two weeks I had received my costume! It arrived beautifully packaged along with care instructions.
I had tried on my costumes numerous times prior to race as I was beyond excited for race and could not wait to take it on it’s debut run. Labor Day weekend had finally arrived and I was ready to run as Snow White! As soon as I checked in to my room I had Flat Melissa all ready for Sunday’s half marathon!
I absolutely loved running as Snow White. iGlow made a beautiful running costumes that fit me perfectly! Racing through Disneyland dressed as Snow White was so much fun! I loved running through Fantasyland and the Castle with a cape! What a thrill! I even stopped to take a picture with my doppelgänger! How could I miss such an opportunity!
I highly recommend running in costumes especially at a Disney race, it adds so much energy and excitement to an event and I truly felt like a Princess!
