I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for November’s Runfessions.
When it comes to running and fitness in general, there are some things I am really vain about, and some things I could care less about.
Yes, I admit it !
I like looking and feeling feminine when I run. Feeling feminine makes me feel good about myself, confident and sexy. So this means :
Wearing fitted tshirts. I will never buy a tshirt unless it is fitted.
I hate that the race shirts are often cut for men. Boo. I will not be caught dead wearing that, unless I absolutely have to.Here is a men’s cut shirt I was given, where I put it on for about 2 minutes to take the picture (for a competition there was in our running group). It is as strait as a box and not flattering at all !
Wearing pink/ bright colors. Again it makes me feel girly. Pink shoes. Pink tops.
Having my picture taken without glasses. As much as I don’t mind wearing glasses, I prefer myself without glasses in my photos. I have a really thin face and my glasses always look too big in pictures. You will always see me put my glasses on my head for my pictures.
Putting on make up for my race / run. For a race I will wear mascara and small stud earrings. Its that feminine thing. I am a mascara addict (hint hint if you are looking for ideas for a Christmas gift.)
And some things I care less about.
My feet. I am no longer vain about my feet. I used to love painting my nails all year long but now that I am doing so much more running, they are cut very very short, and rarely painted. Sorry feet ! They do get creamed and massaged every night in compensation for not looking so pretty.
My hair. As I run early in the morning, my hair doesn’t have to look good. I will never see anyone I know, AND because I put my glasses on my head if I take a picture, I figure that will hide the bed head.
Tell me your runfession ! Do you do any of these ?
