65* today, overcast with winds from 11-25 mph. What the heck, the wind isn’t stopping so why should I?? 4 mile hill run by my house like every Wed. Averaged 8:20 minute miles which is okie dokie with me. My son, Taylor ran with me as per usual. He rocks as per usual.
My plan for today was, wear super cute running clothes – 2 things I have been saving to try so I can decide how much I like them – go to marketing meeting with a friend to help me with my new job, meet Chris at the bike path, do 5 mile run, run errands and pick up kids STILL looking cute in outfit. That’s not how it went down….
Got super cute running outfit on and brought kids to school. Got the Nike tennis dress on Ebay for $30 (1/3 price) during the winter so it’s been tapping it’s fingers waiting for warm weather. Nike black running jacket I’ve had for years, J. Jill wedge sandals are a bazillion years old but I heart them. Cute and comfy. Favorite Alaska coffee mug I got when I visited AK last summer. I lived there for a decade.
Insert super cute outfit here:
Under super cute outfit are my Skirt Sport shorts. They were rated VERY highly but I had my doubts. I got them this winter also and crossed my fingers. I prefer a 3″ inseam and these are 5″ but I’m so tall they’re fine length wise under my running dresses. 2 side pockets for Gu, key, etc… Low rise.
These were AWESOME!!!
The face I was planning on making if the wind blew my dress up over my head like I expected. Don’t ever make this face. Seriously
I did my meeting and it was fabulous. I don’t have new clients but I have direction. As I was pulling out of the parking lot to call and meet Chris I got a call to pick up one of the kids from school. Chris couldn’t wait for me so he did the run alone, I went to the school. Since I missed out on that I decided I’d do the shopping, run errands, pick up the kids and THEN run. Good news. I was in the shorts and dress for 7 hours before running. They were both great!!!
The shorts are everything they were rated. They don’t move, are comfortable, not compression but are fitted. They’re worth every penny. I’m thinking I should get all my clubbing clothes out of moth balls and wear these babies under everything. Oh, wait. I don’t have clubbing clothes…. Huh. The dress was also great. Comfy, cute, didn’t flip up, not heavy. Loved it!! Here’s to fashion meets function!!
Post running and 8 hours of wearing this…. I’m a beast…
