Gotta Have It - My Running Skirts

When I read the topic for this week's Take It and Run Thursday, my running skirts instantly came to mind. I own one pair of running shorts, and my husband would probably say they are the ugliest item in my closet. He is not a fan of the shorts. So of course he is the only lucky person who sees me in them because they are my in-case-everything-else-is-dirty-and-I-am-running-on-the-treadmill shorts. That being said, I have one pair of running pants that were previously yoga pants, and they only come out on really cold winter days. And I mean really cold! Otherwise, you will find me in a running skirt. I have one skirt with compression shorts underneath and the others have briefs; I prefer the briefs. I have my favorite shoes, my favorite brand of socks, and a few shirts that stand out among the others, but the one thing I "Gotta Have" is a running skirt!


  1. Saw your shot block note. I cut those into small pieces and chew them, but I don't like to chew anything while running. I like to run with my mouth open and I don't like to eat with my mouth open! So I use gels or Gatorade most of the time.

    I haven't tried a skirt. I like running in shorts with a bunch of pockets to hold all my stuff.

  2. I love my running skirts! ALthough I've yet to try a "running skirt" brand running skirt..I hear they are great!

  3. I love skirts, too. I don't ever wear shorts anymore.

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
