Training Tuesday: Crazy Running Apparel

Today I had a very important mission at lunch: running over to JC Penney to pick up the clearance running gear I ordered online. I'm channeling my inner Steve Stenzel here. It's my experience that the crazier you dress, the more people will cheer for you. This is especially useful if you're traveling for a race and won't have a cheering squad. It's a strategy that worked well for Jenny and I during the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. MacKenna and I also made a splash with our get ups at Venus de Miles.
So here are my new crazy capris.

Additionally, I have these booty shorts in pixel from RunningSkirts.com.

And these black and white swirl tights (which my sister says makes me look like a Who from Whoville).

Do you ever wear crazy outfits at races?

Love that running skirt and both sets of pants are fabulous!!! I'm definitely starting to get more into style when it comes to running apparel because it just makes you feel peppier. Who says you can't look cute while running!?!?!?

I LOVE crazy running outfits!! Anything costume-like, bright, or patterened and I'm sold!

LOVE your choices!

Those shorts are adorable but, um, they look really, really short.

They are really short. I wore them to CrossFit, and I plan to wear them during the summer when it's really hot.

LOVE the pixel shorts and the swirly who-ville pants. I think your plan is brilliant - I would cheer for someone that looks crazy.
Do you have any antennae headbands? Though that would be hella annoying to wear while running I suspect....

I don't, but I have some bunny ears to wear for the Egg Shell Shuffle. If they're super annoying, I'll just ditch them. I got them from one of my sisters when my parents were moving.

So happy you got the JCP capris! I have been eyeing them!!!

In my opinion, bright matches bright. I love all of these outfits! I totally thought about getting one of those Running Skirts deals but chickened out.

There was a young lady at the F^3 1/2 wearing (I kid you not), silver disco ball booty shorts with neon yellow leggings underneath and she looked fierce!
