Half Marathon Outfit Ideas

At the finish line

As I mentioned in my previous post about my first half marathon, I found that I hadn’t brought all the clothes I needed for my run. The main reason is that the day before the race the weather changed. So instead running with a feel of the 50s, I’d be running with a feel of the 30s. Two main things I was missing: a jacket and pants. I had brought capri’s instead and a thin long sleeve tech shirt. When I would be starting my run it’d be in the teens to 20s. So yes I needed to fix that situation. Luckily I had packed knee high compression socks so with the capri’s I had faux “pants.” I also was able to buy a jacket at the expo the night before, so I was set.

In case you are planning for a half, my big recommendation especially if you are traveling for your half, bring more than you need (just in case).

But if you’re curious here was my half marathon running outfit (and no i’m not getting paid to say any of this-HA!):

After about mile 1 or so I “stored” my gloves in my sleeves. About mile 4 or so I wrapped my fleece headband around my wrist. When I saw my husband at mile 6 cheering me on, I gave him my jacket and gloves, but put back on my headband. That became the perfect combination for the rest of the run.

Hopefully that helps you with your plans!

XO,

Katie
