I've started this blog to document my journey running while balancing motherhood, and eventually if I'm lucky enough, my next pregnancy.

Will I Scare Runners?

So I have my running outfit for the Baltimore Half Marathon. I was super excited about it earlier, but now I'm starting to wonder... am I going to look completely insane while I'm running. Here's what I'm wearing.

I got this great Saucony shirt in orange. So far, I love it, especially the reflective strips on the back.

The bottom portion of my outfit is what I'm now concerned about. I am wearing a sweet little running skirt that Erin let me borrow, much like this one...

but instead of being all orange, it's mostly navy with orange strips down the side (I just couldn't find a pic of it and am too lazy to take my own). That's normal enough. But it's going to be a little chilly for me, so I needed something to wear under my skirt, some capris and my running store was out of capri running skirts... so I saw capris in this tie dye print...

I thought it would be fun and inspire me to have a great time while achieving a PR, but my husband saw my tights and laughed. Hard. And then said I was going to look like a bad acid trip chasing after people.

So is my outfit "extra", as my students would say? (For those of you who do not live in the high school world, extra means over the top crazy. :) )


  1. Wear it! I'm wearing cow tights on my Halloween run. :-)

  2. I think you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Good luck in Baltimore!

  3. Wear it! Love it!!!! I am all about bright and crazy! 7 days until we kill this race!!

  4. Ooooooooo...I like. You'll definitely stand out in this outfit :-) Love it!!


  5. Totally go for it! I mean, if you like it and you think it's fun.. who cares what anyone else thinks. Will it give you a boost during the race? If so GO FOR IT!!


I'd love to hear from you. Nothing makes me happier (except chocolate and cupcakes... but really, who can compete with them?)
