So, just to bring home a point from my last blog: This was the cover of Runner’s World in 2015:
Note the well-coordinated outfit. The slicked back hair. The glorious stride.
And now, what I wore today for my interval training:
Wait for it…
Wait for it…
Feast your eyes!
Please note that while the amazing University of Florida Gator running tights are new I’m proud to say that I totally forgot my running socks and thus wore these fabulous winter socks from Primark (purchased to keep the cold at bay whilst biking). To top off my look I have Brooks shoes in NEON PINK and… while I failed to show my running top… it was also a hoodie in NEON PINK.
I also have a singing hat, which clashed with the entire ensemble.
People fled my presence. I got some excellent (if not painful but necessary) sprints in along the river.
There are times when I have all the intention in the world to match. In fact, I do have running outfits that actually do match. It’s just that it is winter and I have two pairs of long running tights. So, yeah, this is going to happen and I’m going to OWN it.
One of the best things about running is all you really need to get going is a half decent pair of running shoes. Or a total lack of shame.
Happy to say I have both.
Love those running tights and the ones in the magazine! Happy running 🙂
Honestly up until acquiring them they were always black. Who wants to see a woman in her late 30s transversing the streets in mixed neon print? But then I realised I’m also a Mom and I need to make embarrassing choices. 🙂
