1. I am trying to come up with the perfect marathon outfit. It is 93 days away, but I want to be prepared! My shirt is easy. I will be sporting my team Beef tank since they are sponsoring me for the race. I have done a long run in it and had no problems. That leaves what to wear on the bottom.
I have to admit here that since it is my first marathon and you never get to have a first time ever again, I want to look good. When I look good, I feel good and it boosts my confidence. It makes me feel a little more badass and a little less terrified of the task at hand.
Lululemon came out with a Run: a marathon skirt this week. I wish I didn't stalk their website so much. I love the little shorts that come under the running skirts and I love running in their skirts. Pretty much makes me feel bad ass.
This is the Run: A marathon skirt. I think I would love it because it is Lululemon, has the great little shorties underneath, has 7 pockets to hide things in and yet has a cute little skirt to cover the butt. The shorts are key. I think a HUGE part of the reason I love running in my Lulu skirts are I love the shorts under them so much. No riding up and no chaffing, super comfy.
They also had these, which seem to be from the description just the shorts without the skirt, and way cheaper. The above skirt is 78 dollars! WTF?! That puts it way out of what I am willing to pay, awesome shorts, pockets and all.
2. I love that the girls are outsmarting the guys on Survivor, so far. I hope they keep it up. Not sure why I love that so much, but I do. I can't wait until they send Tarzan home. And really what were the chances they would have a guy name Troyzan and one named Tarzan.
3. Today is a long run day and I will be breaking it down into two runs, half this morning and half this afternoon due to babysitter reasons. Active.com had an article on this that I read earlier this week. I don't know that it is ideal, but at this point I am not too worried about it at this point since I do still have three months before my marathon. Sometimes I have to take what I can get! :)
What do you think about breaking up the long runs?
Are you watching Survivor this season, if so what do you think so far?
What is your ideal marathon outfit, if you have run one?
