I have noticed everyone has a running style. We all have a kind of look that we sport when we are out running. For me I like to be girly. I have to have a little pink. My compression jacket is bright pink. I mean bright, you can see it from space, pink. But it makes me feel feminine and cute. I am not going to lie I am definitely in the cute runner girl camp. I will also tell you I love the cooler weather. Not just because no matter how cute your outfit is, excessive amounts of flop sweat is not attractive, but because I LOVE running tights. Since I live in Georgia and wearing them any other time of the year would result in death from heat stroke I love the winter. Winter is the only time I can wear them. My husband is always looking for a race signature. Something you wear or do every race. So I wore my hair in pig tails at a race and several folks commented. Voila! Signature race look. Now for races I always wear my hair in pig tails, (hey I feel young and free when I run). I usually have a color coordinated outfit and I even have matching sweat bands for the summer. Some may say that makes a less serious runner, but who says you can't enjoy the way you look when you run?
My hubby on the the other hand has a very unique style. First of all he is impervious to temperature, so regardless of the weather he is usually in shorts and a T-shirts. I think he has been lying to me all these years about being born in Vietnam! I think he is actually an eskimo! The best part is with his shorts and T-shirt he will wear his wool hat and his gloves. Mind you this is not a look everyone can pull off. And before you ask? Hands off Ladies he is all mine!
There are lots of running clothes and styles. What's yours?
