Four days to Vegas...and it's starting to hit me. OMG...I'm running a 1/2 marathon in four days. OMFG...I've got so much to do! Not the least of which is figuring out my running wardrobe.
To be honest, I typically don't give much thought to what I'm going to wear when I run. I have my compression shorts, sometimes a running skirt, but usually I run in knee length Champion compression shorts. I get them from Target...they're THE BEST, shorter than a mid-calf capri and since I'm not the tallest runner on the blog, they don't make me look like a troll. When it gets cool, I'll put on a lightweight Underarmor top.
However, the temperature in Vegas at race time will be around 40º at the 6:15 am gun time (WFT is up with THAT? I guess that's the price you pay to run up and down the strip on a weekend).
Maybe to some of you northern peeps, that's a balmy day, but to this SoCal transplant, that's freekin' COLD.
So, I'm in a quandary about what to wear. I haven't run in cold weather clothes in FOREVER...I mean, it's been over a year since for most of last winter I was hurt and I didn't run for most of January-March (the coldest months here).
I don't really like running in full length tights. I have a pair, but they're pretty long and the ankles bug. I think I can get away with Capris, and I am thinking of running in my Zenzah compression sleeves as well...I'll be colorful, but I'll be warm.
Even though I'm not running with the herd, I MUST wear the day-glo lime green race shirt, which means Underarmor underneath...no big deal.
Gloves? Maybe, but what to do with them when I tire of wearing them? Hat?
Definitely a trash bag.
