Over the ninja look

Ok, these photos span four years. Do you notice a theme?

Seattle Half Marathon - November 2007   
Mercer Island Half Marathon - March 2008 (pain?) 
North Olympic Discovery Trail Half Marathon - June 2010 (yes, me on the right) 
Lake Sammamish Half Marathon (with Megan @ The Daily Sweat) March 2011
Yeah, I need new duds. I'm over the ninja look. Time to exercise my VIP status at RoadRunner Sports and bring some color into my running...

20 miles on the books for tomorrow morning and I'm scared shitless. Really. This will be the longest run of my life and I'm doing it alone. I will wear something colorful to help me through it?

  2. Have fun on your run. That is a long way to run solo, but don't be scared - you are going to ROCK IT!!!!! I did my longest run in a couple years the other day and new music was what totally MADE the run for me. I lost my ipod and had to borrow my husbands and so it was all new and REALLY rockin' and my legs just flew!

  6. Ahhhh I'll totally be thinking of you tomorrow, A!

    And I totally rock the ninja look. It's weird to wear color now - I wore a bight blue shirt on Wednesday and kept blinding myself when I looked down. :)

  12. At least you have purple-striped socks in the last pic?! :)

    I've gotten used to running with people for my long runs, that when I went to do my 20 all alone last weekend I was kind of panicking. You know what I did? I wore a cute outfit (cute being subjective in running wardrobe terms). I wore a skirt and pink socks and some pink arm warmers and I felt SO AWESOME & killed the 20 milers. I don't know what it is about a boost in self-confidence when you look good (again, subjective when running), but I seriously believe it helps. I think I'll be wearing cute things at all races going forward. :)

    Hope your 20 went well!

  13. I love ninja's! Color works, but I too always opt for black!

    Silent assasin!

  14. I'm totally a bottom half ninja! I favor color on the top but stick with black for everything else. I swear you need like a perfect body to wear lighter colored pants - they show every lump and bump.
