I come from a background of playing sports, but always in pretty conservative circles where my shorts had to go to the top of my knees.
Now I'm on a tight budget and just don't always see the need to buy clothes that I'm going to get super stinky and gross while sweating up a storm. so I've slowing been trying to update my athletic wardrobe for my running endeavors.
Just last week while on vacation I ran across some "running shorts" in Old Navy that were on sale. (these exact ones actually)
I've been keeping my eye out for a new pair for a while - but brands like Nike and Addidas and New balance tend to be pricy and again - I'm just going to get them stinky and sweating so why spend $20 or more. Well Old Navy had them a little cheaper and they looked fine, so I bought 2 pairs.
OH MY WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the best thing i could've done. Now I can't wait to go running just b/c I get to wear my shorts. I had them on one evening and I told Richard "I think I'm going to wear these every day, ALL day!!!!!! I will never go running in "regular" shorts again! Seriously- it makes all the difference. They are light weight, cool and "wik away stuff" (don't you like how I know so much about them. hahaha) they don't ride up in between my thighs b/c lets face it, by no no matter how much weight I lose, my shorts are probably always going to do that.(does anyone else have that problem?) I'm telling you - I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!
This weekend i will be running in a 5K race with my twin!!! for her local YMCA program that she joined.
It's her first race ever!!!! I cannot wait to do this with her and encourage her along. I've dreamed of the day that I could do this with one of my sisters. I'm so proud of her for getting in shape - and having the courage to do this!!!!! I'll keep you posted with how it goes! :)
