One of my favorite parts of running a race is getting to wear something fun and a little crazy the day of the event. I know a lot of people aren’t into it but I’m not fast so for me, I love the whole experience of running a race – beyond just the running. I love to people watch what others choose to wear and to wear a little something fun when I’m doing it too. It helps me to have fun I know I’m not the only one because this post from 2014:Running with Style: Tutus, Skirts & Fun Spirited Fitness Gear, continues to get a lot ofviews and pins on it.

I have a race coming up in less than two weeks and I’m starting to think about what to wear now: I’m doing the Hot Chocolate 15k in Philadelphia {my review} for my second time with my hubby. Last year, I wore a blue sparkle skirt from Sparkle Athletic.

I love Sparkle Athletic. Their skirts are a lot of fun – just a tiny bit of bling to make you feel a little girly and cute. They have lots of skirts in different colors and patterns. They also sell matching sleeves, compression socks and headwear. (The Shwings for shoes are pretty fun too.)

If you want a skirt without the sparkle, I know a lot of runners who wear skirts from Running Skirts.

I bought this Run Now Wine Later tank from Strong Confident YOU on Easy awhile back but haven’t had a warm enough race or day to be able to run with it yet but hope to soon! This should pretty much be my tagline.

Hippie Runner has a ton of great headbands that make me laugh and the prices are great – $5/each or 5 for $15 and you can buy plain or buy one of the funny sayings headbands. I like My Head Says Gym but my Heart Says Tacos.

I’m also a fan of Urban Halo and have a few of their headbands.
