Hey y’all! In preparation for Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend being less than a week away, I thought I’d share with all of you some of my favorite running brands and products. I know I have been doing a lot of RunDisney content lately, so I apologize if you’re not interested in that! But I promise I’ll get back to some non-running blog posts next week 😉

1. SparkleSkirts

This is my go-to brand for running skirts. I only have two, but I love them so much and couldn’t survive a Princess Half Weekend without them. Not only are they super fun and come in every color and pattern imaginable, but they are so incredibly practical. They have a built in “running belt” by having a zipper in the front that has a HUGE pocket. It can fit my iPhone 6 Plus, a small pack of tissues, a snack, everything I need for my races. They also have built-in shorts that don’t ride up as you run. No wedgies here! Not to mention the shorts also have huge pockets on both sides if you can’t fit everything in the zip pocket. I also love that they offer inclusive sizing and go up to size 3XL. You can see their sizing chart HERE.

2. Brooks Running Shoes

I always recommend getting professionally fitted for a running shoe. Employees at your local running store can help analyze your running style and foot shape to help you decide what is best for you. However, I am a big fan of Brooks and know a lot of others who are too. So they’re a brand worth checking out!

3. RawThreads Athletics

My first time purchasing items from RawThreads was about a year and a half ago. I was apprehensive because their items are pricey. But after trying them, I am a believer! Their products are soft, made of bamboo, and so comfortable. Since they contain bamboo they dry quickly and don’t retain smell, which is perfect if you’re a sweaty person like me lol. They have something for everyone, men and women, Disney fans, etc.

4. FlipBelt

When I am not wearing my SparkleSkirt with the built in running belt, this is my go-to! It doesn’t ride up and is offered in a variety of sizes and colors. These have so much room in them (the whole thing is basically a giant pocket), so you’ll definitely be able to fit all of your necessities while running.

5. KT Tape

KT Tape is such a great tool to keep in your medicine cabinet as well as your bag during a race weekend. KT Tape can help with a wide variety of pains and injuries. I personally wear it for shin splints every time I run, even if I don’t have shin splints at the time. Their YouTube Channel is a great tool where you can learn to wrap for certain injuries and pains.
