NEED A LAST-MINUTE HALLOWEEN COSTUME THAT IS EASY TO RUN IN TONIGHT? Runnersworld.com posted an article in 2015 that might help you, "Top Halloween Costumes and How to Run in Them" by Brian Dalek and Kelley Gaston.
If this is the first thought you have given to a costume this year, perhaps next Halloween you will start earlier. These costumes might provide inspiration. My favorites are the Minions, Orange Is the New Black and Princess Leia, which women are shown wearing. There are some ideas for men too.
Others that might be easy to assemble by tonight are identified in a post of RunToTheFinish.com, “16 Race Costume Ideas” by Amanda Brooks, and include Waldo (of the books, "Where's Waldo"). Not in either article, but something I Googled, is Forrest Gump in his bearded, cross-country, running days.
A quick homemade idea from years ago, is to wrap head an arms in gauze bandages and go as a mummy or an injured person (plus 'blood'stains).
Have fun and stay safe tonight!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. In 1978 I began participating in 10K road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health and longevity.
