    I love bright clothes! But I don’t look as good in them…the colors don’t suit me. (I keep hoping I’ll find some cute enough to wear anyway.)

      Recently I tried bright yellow. More like fluorescent. Looked awful on me. Keep searching!

    I always wear bright clothing for running, but not in everyday life and I have been wearing Brooks sneakers for the last three years! Have a wonderful vacation in France, a great destination.

    I’m pretty much a Mizuno girl! I like bright tops – and compression socks.

  4. Have a great vacation! Looking forward to seeing your pics

    Have a good time.

    I like my Asics I have for running, but I have a pair of the runDisney New Balance that I love just wearing around.

    Your favorite running route looks a lot like mine. I live in the country too, and dirt paths are the best. Unless they’re muddy of course.

      Agree !
