And now since it's Thursday, I must focus on something I love. This is quite easy since I have a backlog of Thursday topics. However, the post title might be a little misleading. I am still trying to make peace with 26.2 MILES. However, I am loving my 26.2 APPAREL. I received two pairs of shorts and four shirts for Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to me indeed! I have worn all six items but only managed to get a few pictures.
Gotta love the sweaty, post-run pics. I LOVE this shirt. It is seriously the softest fabric. I also got a solid pink shirt that is the same fabric that might become an everyday item in my wardrobe because it is so soft and comfy. Plus it is as wicking and cool as it is soft. I like these shorts, but not as much as the other pair I got. I'm just not sold on the little flare thing they do on the sides. But for someone who only had one pair of shorts that I liked to wear running before I got these, the fact that I like them is BIG.
Could someone teach me how to take a good self-portrait? I tried sitting the camera on top of the TV and getting a timer pic, but those turned out worse than these. So this is what you get, a pic of my happy running face and a lovely picture that highlights my armpits. But scan down past the pits a little and you'll see my new favorite shorts.
Until recently, I was all about the running skirts or the capris. I still think capris are the kindest to my body as far as covering things up and keeping them from jiggling, but I was not loving my skirts as much lately. I just felt like I was flashing people all the time. Even sitting down to tie my shoes takes a conscious effort at modesty. So finding some shorts that don't look weird on my body makes me a very happy girl. And the shirt is great too. I was seriously lacking in the tank department, so I got this in two colors.
And since we're on the subject of 26.2, I signed up for the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon yesterday. What better way to celebrate National Running Day? I am a little unsure about those 26.2 miles but figure I can drop down to the half if I wuss out later. Let me know if you are running it! I'm excited to meet all the other bloggers and blog readers who are running the strip (at night).
