Today’s topic is Misc. so I am choosing last week’s topic of Fashion.
I’m an adult late onset athlete.
I started playing tennis in my 40’s. I always maintained that if I didn’t pay “good,” at least I looked “good.”
I have the same philosophy when it comes to running (which I started in my 50’s.). I like to look “good.”
Here are FIVE REASONS WHY FASHION MATTERS TO ME:
1. Self Esteem.
Simply put: If I dress like a runner, I feel like a runner.
I wear SkirtSports because they have pockets. I can carry my car key, my phone, fuel, etc. when I run. Plus, the pockets are hidden under the skirt.
If I’m in a slump and don’t feel like running, I put on a new outfit. It’s puts zip in my step and gets me out the door.
I wear skirts because they are more comfortable to me than shorts. They cover my thighs and the shorts underneath don’t ride up.
Wearing bright colors can help you be seen on a dark, rainy or foggy day/night.
So I may be partial to Skirt Sports but many other brands accomplish the same thing. (You can save 20% on Skirt Sports items with the code SPRINGCPT20).
Take my advice: Wear what makes you look good, makes you feel good and makes you want to get out there and run.
Don’t worry. My Runfessions are coming tomorrow.
Happy Running! Do you think fashion is important? Do you care about what you wear when you run?
