Dressing UP to dress DOWN
So as many of you know, I'm a broke graduate student. Usually I never spend any money on workout clothes....they usually consist of t-shirts from the thrift store...and some random nike shorts, VS pink sweats, or whatever I've had in my drawer since 9th grade (including high school sports t shirt). When push came to shove..I always spent most of my money on "going out" clothes to strut my stuff at the local club. Well I am now MARRIED with the golden hand cuffs and realize I spend the majority of my time dressed DOWN. I am a scrub wearing (literally...medical field), sweat pant sportin, hoody hoodlum grad student. So I figured these days I might as well look smokin hot in workout clothes....therefore I will be dressing UP to dress DOWN!
So heres the first start....some bia brazil capri pants so that NO ONE will miss my undertrained ass in my first half marathon! This is the first apparel item of the "sexy twin" running gear (more info to come about that). Got them on sale 40% off....for a grand total of $34! YESSSSS! This is just a start....I have no money....so other items will have to come as rewards for finishing races. Plus I'm saving up for my first triathlon bike... :)
Also...I found another victim yesterday. Her name is Nikki....and I made her go running with me (on my rest day). It was a blast...although I'm sure she was cursing me the whole time. But at the end...(when I made her sprint the last 300 m) she managed to mutter "that was..........FUN!" She used the F word!!!! ANd totally not the F word I thought she was going to say...haha. So I'm hoping I might have someone to run with some days. SHe even agreed to come run with me Sunday already. I hung the bait out there....and she bit! THats like victim number 6 for me. Stay away...I'm serious! Oh...and heres the run! Then we stuffed our faces with sushi. What's running for if you cant make up all the calories you burnt by eating a bunch of shit?
