Above all, let’s be sexy
Wow. Where to begin?
There are so many to choose from, but I think my favorite piece of advice from this article is: “Heels are very feminine, and a small one goes a long way to make you look sexy even outdoors.”
I guess I’ve been worrying about the wrong things when purchasing outdoor footwear. I’ve been thinking about comfort and support and avoiding blisters and injury. Silly me. Now I know the only question I need to ask is, “do these shoes make me look sexy?”
The author also suggests ditching technical fabrics in favor of cotton, which is sexier. I guess it is important to look sexy while we’re dying of hypothermia.
This was written as a joke, right?
It’s not too late! I still have plenty of time to win my first marathon.
I’m not a hater, I just don’t wear skirts
I was a little distracted by the typos in this article, but looking beyond that, I found it interesting.
I don’t wear running skirts, but it’s mostly because they’ve never felt comfortable to me. I’ve tried a few on and the shorts underneath always feel like they’d ride up, or just be too hot. I’ve secretly been on the lookout for a skirt with just briefs underneath, though. I now know that such a skirt exists. Recently, I read 30 Something Mother Runner‘s blog post review of a skirt with briefs instead of shorts. So, I may one day become a member of the Skirt-Wearing Women Runner Club after all. I’m not going out of my way to join, though.
For the record, I’ve never felt shunned by other women runners because I don’t wear a skirt. I know a lot of women wear them, but I never realized it was a thing. Now that I think about it, maybe that is the reason nobody talked to me when I showed up for that early morning track workout. I’ve been trying to figure out what it was that I did wrong…
