Pretty Pretty Princess

Disney Princess Running Gear Will Help You Feel Magical While Getting In Shape


Geeks who are casual or professional runners don’t have many options when it comes to showing their pride while they sprint. But thanks to Etsy user Helen McCarty (ThisPrincessRuns), now they can! Hit the jump for her Disney Princess (and other) designs created specifically for exercise!  

McCarty writes, “I love creating running costumes for those who enjoy dressing up for their events! I also enjoy making every day shirts for those who don’t run! A current half marathoner, full time mom, paramedic, and recent college graduate ( better late than never), I fully enjoy escaping from reality by creating these masterpieces. Okay not really masterpieces, but you get the idea. I focus on detail, ensuring that these outfits not only make the runner feel magical, but also keep them dry and cool! I am always inspired by new ideas and am not afraid to take on a challenge!”

Snow White

Sleeping Beauty

If you’d rather play the villain, she also has Snow White’s Evil Queen available.

Tinkerbell

And yes, there’s an awesome Wonder Woman outfit thrown in for good measure.

McCarty is open for commissions and will create an outfit for the Princess or other character of your choice. The outfits are made using Under Armour Heat Gear fabric and are made to order so they’ll fit you perfectly. See more in her shop!

    This Princess Runs is the store of Helen McCarty. She creates running costumes with Disney and super hero themes.

    I have worked with Helen twice. The first time, she created a Wonder Woman running costume for me. It arrived less than 24 hours before the race. The second time, the costume was created, but I ultimately never received it — and if I had, I would have refused to wear it.

    As Helen canceled the Etsy order, I am not able to leave her a review. I have also been blocked from posting on her Facebook page because I posted the review below (the letter I sent to her when, less than 24 hours before a Disney race, she sent the costume to the wrong location): This Princess Runs is the store of Helen McCarty.
