I'm still alive!
I have decided to run a 5K this summer with Emily. Oh boy.
This is now what Emily looks like...
I usually jog around a track on our property. Many years ago I measured it out and five laps is roughly one mile. Once a week Em and I have decided to go over to the community college to run their trails. Something about running in goose poop makes it all the better. The first time I took my ped meter. We walked the first lap and it said one lap was .3 miles. We would run three to four laps. Off we went. I ran one lap. I walked one lap. I ran one lap. If my ped meter is correct, I roughly run a 40 minute mile. Good God.
I decided if I am going to do this thing I might as well look the part.
Athleta had a very nice Memorial Day sale...
2 in 1 Pulse Shortie, Size L, Cerulean Blue
I shall be running stadium seating in no time. Ha!
I probably ordered the wrong size. Athleta has always run small but I will order a medium next time.
One of my biggest pet peeves with running shorts is the bunching I get between my thighs.
These have an inner short that stays put because of this band thingie on the inside hem. See below.
There is a zip pocket back waist area.
Some reflective bits for those running evenings or early mornings.
Not me...my drill sergeant prefers to run at the hottest part of the day...anywhere from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM
Not too high waisted.
Took them out Saturday for their very first run. They were terrific. Washed and then dried flat. Ready to go again tomorrow.
Pulse Short, size large, Granite Grey
Soon. Very Soon.
They have the built in brief that I am not a fan of. These didn't bother me a bit though.
Again, I should have ordered size medium. I usually take an 8 or 10 in pants. Go by the size chart.
I will keep to wear around the house and run in if the other shorts are dirty. I really like the 2 in 1 shortie and will order in black during their next sale promo. Emily has expressed a desire for a pair also.
Pacifica UPF Tee, size L, Catalina Green
This was the right fit for the girls. And a very beautiful color.
Zippered pocket at small of back.
Forerunner Tee, Size L, Cerulean Blue
I did not take any pictures. Thought this was a bit big but the medium would probably be too tight. The darker areas are all vented material. There is a zippered pocket at the right hip area.
Although most people walk faster than I jog, I am going to look great in my new duds!
