It’s true I’m not much of a fashionista or clothes whore. I spend a lot of time in PJs and workout clothes that need to be washed. I dress sort of nicely when I have to go on a home visit for work. Or if we’re going somewhere social where I might be seen by living things other than the dog. Other than that, I pride myself on looking like crap most of the time.
However, every once in awhile there is an occasion that warrants special clothing. A wedding. A funeral. A prom. Prostituting.
You know where I’m going with this.
I’ve got my Boston Marathon outfit picked out. At least version #1. This could change depending on weather, personal taste, etc. I am reserving that right to deviate at the last minute. I plan on having throw away clothes until it warms up. Then I will unveil the threads.
Like it? If I can’t run fast at least I can run pretty. Lord knows I’m going to be out there long enough. Hopefully I will not shart in this most lovely of skorts. No guarantees.
One of these days I am going to do one of those nude runs like the Bare Burros 5K. Then I won’t have to worry about an outfit. This is Southern California’s only naked run. The course follows remote dirt roads and trails through the hilly terrain of California's badlands, with the start and finish within the family nudist park. This is a clothing optional event, although very few of the runners are clothed.
Okay, maybe not. That’s sounding just a bit weird, even for me. Would you ever do a race naked?
Got anything fun picked out for your next race?
Off to sleep. Got my big 15 miler in the morning. Wish me luck. I can’t believe I’m finally back to running that far!!!!
