Yay Saturday

It is Saturday, which I know in the blogosphere is also known as the day that nobody reads what you post. But there are a couple of good things happening for me today, and I wanted to share. First off, I signed up for a nighttime 10k that takes place tonight - it is the first race I have run in since Thanksgiving, and I am pretty excited:

Secondly, I've needed some new running clothes for a while now, but haven't had the money and also have been avoiding going to an actual running store, because, I'll be honest, they completely intimidate me. But this morning I bit the bullet and went to my local store. Where I fell in love. With this:
Yep, I am the proud new owner of a running skirt. With awesome built-in compression shorts. With hidden pockets. I also picked up a running tank and some socks, and for the first time ever I feel like I look like a runner. And while I know looks aren't everything, it really was a boost to my running confidence as I stood in front of the mirror in the changing room to feel like I looked the part. At any rate, I am really excited to try the outfit out tonight in my 10k. 

Now I am off to finish packing for camping (we leave tomorrow morning for four days!) and get some more water and food in preparation for tonight. Hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. Haha, I didn't realize Saturdays were "nobody reads your post" day. It's so awesome that you could finally go into a running store. I actually just went last week because I had a coupon and if it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have had the courage to go in. Hope you're having a great run and have a fun trip!

  2. I like your running skirt! I like running apparel, it makes me feel like a runner, too. What a coincident my most recent blog post was about being a "fastinista".

    Hope you enjoyed your moonlight run.
