Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Your least favorite running costumes or outfits You can write about any running related topic. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
I love a good running costume or outfit, but I’ve had a few misses too. Either the clothes don’t fit correctly or the costume feels heavy or annoying. Here are a few of my least favorite choices.
Okay, so I know this was included in last week’s post for my favorite costumes, but it’s also going to be included here. Last year I upgraded to a more ‘hardcore’ turkey costume. I wore it to my OTF class on Thanksgiving morning and it was HOT! I was dripping sweat after the treadmill block, which I did at the beginning of class, and it never got more comfortable. I think the costume will be better for outdoor running for a Turkey Trot race.
I’m always one to participate in theme days at my OTF studio, but this was probably my first and last time wearing a tutu. For starters, I’ve never worn a tutu (just not my thing), and it kept getting in the way when I was on the rower. Maybe the tutu was too long? I could try a shorter one, but this outfit choice was a big fail.
Worst Race Outfit Ever
There were so many issues with this outfit. This was my second half marathon and I made the mistake of wearing the race shirt on race day. The shirt didn’t fit correctly which resulted in some chafing issues. Also my shorts were not compression shorts so they kept riding up every few minutes. I constantly had to pull them down during the race. It was also like 95 degrees and way too hot for those long compression socks. It was just a comedy of errors that resulted in a horrible race day outfit. Also the race sucked too.
Tell me: Do you have a least favorite running outfit or costume?
