Running Outfits...please vote!
Option #1 - "old faithful"
OK - so pros to this outfit is comfort...sort of...the shirt is ROUND neck vs. Vneck and I find that i'm constantly pulling it down when I'm running, so that bugs me. The shorts have pockets and are ridiculously comfortable (and at least 10 years old). While the pockets may be handy, they are SO big that stuff would flop around in there and likely annoy me, so I probably won't use them anyway...although I do want to carry my small P&S camera somehow...word is that there are Disney characters throughout the race course & most people stop for pics...if I see Pluto...I will HAVE to stop!! How am I going to transport my camera?? Argh!!
Option #2 - All New
~So this is the NEW outfit...the shirt is UA and is V-NECK but fits a bit slimmer than shirt in Option #1....not too snug though, the tag info even says "loose" <---hooray!! It's also thin and wicking material, which will be nice since I sweat like a pig when I'm running. I also have no idea what the weather will be...it's only 3 weeks away and high temps right now have been 50s-60s. Oh and the race starts at the insane hour of 6am and I have heard that the corraling process starts around 5am or earlier...so it will probably NOT be 60 degrees at that time...ok that was a tangent....onto the shorts...no pockets...not sure that matters though...they fit a bit snugger than the black shorts but are tasteful...I am NOT one to wear skin tight things...BELIEVE ME...so I also wonder if this option is TOO MUCH PINK??? Or is there such a thing? Also, the pinks match much better IRL...not sure why the pic looks like they are off...
Other options I'm considering....a shirt from one more mile running like the one that says "i'm only doing this so I can post it on facebook" or "this seemed like a good idea 3 months ago" or my personal favorite "slow is the new fast"....if I get one of these shirts, I'm not sure how it will fit me and I'd have to buy White and for some reason that sort of scares me...and limits which sportsbras I can wear.
Oh...sportsbras...that's a nightmare in and of itself...as if buying regular bras wasn't bad enough. I have TWO ANCIENT Champion sportsbras that I wear over and over again...they are grey and go down to my belly button...I like that they hold it all my fat...but after I run a while, they roll up (cuz I'm too fat)...so i'm thinking I won't bother wearing one of them and instead wear one of the "regular" sportsbras that I have...I have a couple white ones, so not a big issue, I'll just need to run a few times with each to see which is more comfortable.
So you can see I have a MAJOR dilemma here picking out a silly outfit for this race....I need your help!!!!
