I don’t watch Project Runway. I don’t subscribe to Vogue. Because of my arthritis, I spend the winter wearing shoes that could easily pass for orthopedic wedges. And yesterday, I almost wore pants to work that I had hemmed with scotch tape.
All those things aside, I do like to look nice and be in style when possible. I do own jeggings that I wear with tall boots, and it would just about kill me to wear a sweatshirt to the office. I am by no stretch of the imagination a fashionista like my friend Erin, but I do ok. And if I can get a great deal on a cute new outfit, all the better.
I recently spent what seemed like a lot of money on a tshirt - $30. Do you like it?
Yes, you read it correctly. It says I am training to run a ½ marathon – 13.1 miles to be exact. My BFF Jenny and I ran our first race last summer and were looking for another 5K to run to keep us motivated, and somehow we settled on the Indy Mini-Marathon on May 7 instead. I was WAY too scared to sign up last year. And hitting the “Submit” button on the application this year was a pretty frightening ordeal as well. But, with a LOT of training, I know I can do it. My good friends (and fellow May moms) Mandee and Kim also signed up, so the four of us will make it across the finish line, somehow, someway.
First things first…. I need the courage to actually put ON this shirt.
