Unearthed from my closet: Do or Do Not. There is No Try


Two years ago I signed up for my very first 5 K. In 2016, I ran it. Towards the end of the 2016, I ran my first 10K.

This year, I jumped all in and signed up for not only the 5K and the 10K but also the half marathon. My first 13.1 miles. I'm going to be taking about all three runs in their own posts but I'm here to show off my running outfits!

That's the beauty of these RunDisney events, the costumes! They use to be a bit more relax with their costume rules so I would see photos of people running as Tie Fighters and such. Last year, they got a bit more strict so folks did have to tone it down but that still doesn't stop them from dressing up!

Since I was running all three, I put together my own Star Wars running theme outfits!

5K - R2-D2


Skirt: Amazon
Running capris: Betsey Johnson

I went with my favorite droid ever, R2-D2! The tank was from Mighty Fine but a word of caution, this is awkward sizing. I ordered a L and it was really tight on me. I bought the blue sparkly skirt at Amazon (any excuse to wear a sparkle skirt!) and just basic black running capris. Such a simple and easy running outfit and it was great to run in!

10K- Rey


Galactic Scavenger Vest: Elhoffer Designs 
White Moisture shirt: Amazon
Gray running pants: Her Universe for Kohl's (NA)

For the 10K, I went as Rey since the medal was BB-8! For this outfit I bought a moisture wicking shirt because I was running a longer and timed race. That and I didn't want to sweat into my vest. Another comfortable running outfit! The run started at 5:30am and this vest kept me really warm!

Half - Leia



White Moisture shirt: Amazon
White tulle skirt: Target
(Gray) Running pants: Her Universe for Kohl's (NA)

The medal for the half was Leia and Han on one side and the other side was the Yavin medal. I went with an all white outfit in honor of her Senate one or heck, her Yavin ceremony one. I couldn't find my running shorts the last minute so I wore the pants under my skirt. It's one thing to run in those really short sparkle skirts, it's another in a full tulle one. I did it though and folks knew who I was channeling! A little girl on the sidelines cheering the runners started yelling "Go Leia!" 

I'm glad I was able to put together outfits out of store bought and RUNNING items! They were also great choices to run in. Getting the chance to play dress up as my favorite characters in any form is the best and I will take every opportunity! I don't know how folks with cardboard pieces did it in the past but more power to them. 

I was hoping to make a trip out to WDW for their Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon weekend but it's not looking good. There's always next year.

Now to come up with running outfits for the Avengers Half Marathon Weekend later this year!
