So anyway, to get my husband to look at me post-run, and because I, like most people, enjoy getting new running gear, I bought a white, reflective Under Armor visor when our family unit was bopping around the new athletic store in town. And I wore it on my run yesterday. As soon as I put in on, I felt cool and strong and athletic. "Wow!" I thought, "This visor makes me feel 10 seconds faster!"

And then I remembered the rest of my outfit:
What the hell am I wearing? Especially those socks with my running shoes? Ai-yai-yai.
Luckily, I don't really care what I look like when I run (its true, I don't. I appreciate looking nice when I run, but I'd prefer that to be a fortuitous accident rather than something that I plan and strategize. When it comes to fashion, I am totally clueless, as evidence by above pic.) So off I went for a fast run through that hilly neighborhood near work. I managed three loops (3.85 miles) in just over a half-hour (33:53), which gave me a good base for realistic goals on this short, quick lunchtime route. Next time I'm going to try for 3 loops and back in 30:00.
