Vote for President Loki Fun Running Costume Inspiration

If you're looking for a non-traditional costume idea for an upcoming runDisney race weekend, or another superhero-themed race, I've got a few ideas for you, based on popular Marvel characters and featuring some unique apparel designs available in my Etsy shop.

Following Hawkeye's Kate Bishop and Captain Carter from last week, today I'm sharing some ideas for dressing up as President Loki.  You can find these and other pop-culture-inspired running costume ideas in my Etsy shop here:

Note that the costume pieces I've been highlighting from my shop, including the President Loki garments, are made to order. Printing and shipment times vary but are clearly stated on the Etsy listing. These ideas I'll be sharing require some thinking ahead, and are definitely not "quick costume ideas."

Hawkeye's Kate Bishop Costume & Other Hawkeye-Inspired Tops

If you're looking for a non-traditional costume idea for an upcoming runDisney race weekend, or another superhero-themed race, I've got a few ideas for you, based on popular Marvel characters and featuring some unique apparel designs available in my Etsy shop.

Today I'm sharing some ideas for dressing up as Kate Bishop, as well as other running t-shirt designs inspired by the recent hit Disney+ series Hawkeye. You can find all of these and more fun pop-culture themed running gear in my Etsy shop here:

Note that the costume pieces I'll be highlighting from my shop, including the Kate Bishop costume shirt, are made to order. Printing and shipment times vary but are clearly stated on the Etsy listing. These ideas I'll be sharing require some thinking ahead, and are definitely not "quick costume ideas."

Kate Bishop was introduced into the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. In comic form, Kate becomes the familiar Hawkeye character.

In the series, her costume is a big part of the character, as she finds branding an important part of being a superhero. She tries to get Clint Barton to change his look and improve his recognition among the public. By the end of the series, he does change into a kick-ass costume, but also seems to hand the reins over to Kate.

LadyHawke? HawkShot? Lady Arrow? I have an idea...

Captain Carter from What If...? Costume Running Outfit Idea

If you're looking for a non-traditional costume idea for an upcoming runDisney race weekend, or another superhero-themed race, I've got a few ideas for you, based on popular Marvel characters and featuring some unique apparel designs available in my Etsy shop.

Today I'm sharing some ideas for dressing up as Captain Carter; in coming days and weeks I'll highlight some other Marvel-inspired ideas. You can find my Etsy shop here:

WeRunForFun on Etsy


Note that the costume pieces I'll be highlighting from my shop, including this Captain Carter shirt, are made to order. Printing and shipment times vary but are clearly stated on the Etsy listing. These ideas I'll be sharing require some thinking ahead, and are definitely not "quick costume ideas."

Captain Carter, a variant of the WWII-era hero known to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), was featured in the popular animated series What If...?, featured on Disney+.

In this different world, where a single decision made by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Peggy Carter changes the course of her life, and her reality, a woman became a kick-ass super-soldier superhero instead of Steve Rogers (Captain America).

I've got a fun costume t-shirt of Captain Carter in the cartoon style seen in the series. It would be easy to match this colorful and bold printed costume top with other garments and elements to make a fun running costume.

Princess Running Costume Idea: Luisa Madrigal

Are you looking for something different to wear for the upcoming Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend? If you're running but don't want to dress up like one of the race theme princesses, or any princess, for that matter, how about something non-traditional, but still Disney?

Luisa Madrigal is one of the heroines in the latest animated Disney feature film, Encanto. 

The main story revolves around her sister, Mirabel, who wears a whimsical outfit with lace-look trim, flower details, and other pretty and intricate design features. We have a few Mirabel costume pieces available in our Etsy shop. I will share the pieces at the bottom of this post as well.

WeRunForFun on Etsy

Dress up as the strong Luisa, whose magic is extraordinary strength. Luisa works to balance the responsibilities of her gift with the pressures she feels from those who rely on her.

Luisa great character to channel during a runDisney race or other costumed run. Her signature song, Surface Pressure, is a great workout song with a catchy beat -- hum along during your run, or add it to your running playlist!

Luisa is also a perfect companion costume to join up with a Mirabel runner. Pick up Mirabel and Luisa running outfits for a pair of running sisters, or running besties.

Costume running is even more fun when you do it together!

Luisa Madrigal Running Costume Shirt, Skirt, and More

We offer a few different Luisa-inspired costume pieces in our shop. Luisa wears a lilac blouse with red ribbon and lace-look trim at the bottom. She also wears a dark purplish-blue skirt. In addition to a costume shirt and skirt, we have a t-shirt dress, and a pair of Luisa-inspired leggings for those who prefer that style instead of a skirt. These four items are featured below:

Luisa Madrigal Running Costume Accessory Ideas

Luisa makes for an especially easy running costume because she doesn't have a lot of accessories -- there's nothing large to carry or bulky to wear to achieve her look.

She does wear purple bands at her wrists, and a red ribbon in her hair. You can use sweatbands or a headband to approximate this look, with athletic gear, for your running costume. I would probably accessorize with a red Headsweats hat. You could also consider carrying a prop barbell or dumbbells to showcase Luisa's strength. See ideas below.

2021 Virtual Race Round-Up (May - December)

While I continue to work through knee pain, I haven't really been able to make any running goals. Unfortunately my overall fitness has been a victim of this, but I hope to make some changes in 2022.

Anyway, in 2021 I participated in very few in-person events. I also completed just a handful of virtual events, mostly walking. 

These virtual runs (walks) are mostly completed in my neighborhood or local trail, so they unfortunately aren't particularly memorable; individual reports would be even more boring than the usual race report. I still want to note them, especially to shout out the charities involved, so here are some brief recaps from virtual events I completed in the last half or so of 2021.

1 Run 4 Life 4 Miler 2021

This was a live event that I elected to complete virtually. I've participated in this race 3 times in person, and virtually in 2020.

2 Global Energy Race 10K 2021

This worldwide event went virtual for the second year in a row. The charity run boasted unique swag for a free entry. I have participated in the Global Energy Race 3 times in person, and virtually in 2020.

  • Completed: October 10, 2021 on local trails
  • Charity: Feeding America
  • Cost: FREE
  • Swag: Tote bag, cooling towel, finisher medal (submitted date-based results required)
  • Time: 1:44:25

3 Park Falls Virtual Turkey Trot 2020

This local race in Park Falls, Wisconsin was forced to go virtual due to the pandemic. It had a Thanksgiving theme with the option to run anytime up until Thanksgiving Day. I completely forgot about this run during 2020, so I completed it in 2021. 

  • Completed: December 7, 2021 on local trails
  • Charity: Lord's Cupboard Food Pantry
  • Cost: $39.00
  • Swag: Long-sleeve t-shirt, finisher medal
  • Time: 47:05

4 Smashed Santa 5K 2020

I signed up for this affordable virtual race with some neat holiday swag back in 2020. I ended up completing it around Christmas 2021.

  • Completed: December 10, 2021 in my neighborhood
  • Charity: Nikolas Ritschel Foundation
  • Cost: $31.68
  • Swag: Long sleeve t-shirt, finisher medal, holiday socks, beanie, Santa beard
  • Time: 49:46

5 Daytona Beach Turkey Trot 2021

This was a live event last year that I had hoped to attend but I was unable to participate in person. The race director very kindly let me convert to a virtual race at the last minute. 

  • Completed: December 13, 2021 in my neighborhood
  • Charity: Funds were raised to support the largest school team of race participants
  • Cost: $31.03
  • Swag: T-shirt, finisher medal
  • Time: 49:46

6 Santa's Twilight 5K 2020

This was another in-person event that I was able to convert to virtual after registration. The race took place in 2020 but I didn't complete it until 2021.

  • Completed: December 15, 2021 in my neighborhood
  • Charity: Give A Day Foundation
  • Cost: $35.06
  • Swag: T-shirt, finisher medal
  • Time: 49:58
