With many entertainment spots closed a lot of us are looking for more creative ways to celebrate this festive time of the year. One fun way that combines the holidays and helps us get outside exercising is to add a little Christmas flare to our running wardrobe. Fortunately this is very easy to do and a great way to break up the tedium of every day running.


Leggings or yoga pants breathe well and make a great foundation garment for a run. Luckily on etsy and a number of other places you can find them in all kinds of prints. You can even find festive leggings at your local Wal-mart or other Big Box stores.


Printed shirts are a great way to show personality while supporting independent artists and merchants. Sites like teepublic are a great way to find unique looks that express who you are and why you are running. Plus there are tons of sales so it’s easy to find a great deal. And they also have more than just t-shirts with hoodies, long sleeve tees and more.

Hats, Scarf and Gloves

Obviously in the winter we need to keep our extremities warm while we are running. This can be done with festive flair by a hat, scarf and a pair of gloves. All of these items can be bought inexpensively at Dollar Tree and other discount stores or online. Especially if they are just for Christmas there is no need to spend a lot of money on such novelty designs.

Tutus and Skirts

We’ve mentioned before on this blog that running skirts and tutus can be a fun way to spice up a running outfit without causing a problem in your run. These festive bursts of color can be made easily and found at etsy and more. It’s too late this year for an order but it’s never too late to start planning for next year.

Merry Running!
