Wednesday again! Time is just flying lately! It’s another sunny day here! A big thanks to all the comments on yesterday’s post. I love you guys, y’all are awesome!
So I got a package in the mail on Monday, yay!
So if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know I have a slight Running Skirts obsession. You may also know their spring line just came out. I ooed and ahhed over all the super cute prints, but in the end I actually made a good, practical choice. I have been wanting a simple black skirt for a long time. There have been many races where I knew what top I wanted to wear, but didn’t have a skirt to match. Enter my newest skirt, what a bright idea! I can literally wear it with any top, and I am happy with my purchase!
I also got a pair of black swift socks. (Compression socks). I have the pink pair I got when they first came out, but once again…black goes with anything. Yay for making a wise decision Heather!
So yesterday I decided to take it out for a little test run.
I did NOT wear the swift socks. Let’s be blunt here people, its HOT here on the coast, so those babies will stay in the drawer until fall.
The run was very interesting. I started out just wanting to do a nice easy run. I listened to music, which I don’t do often, so I didn’t pay as much attention to my Garmin as I usually do. It was very sunny and warm, and my neighborhood has some serious hills. Before I knew it I looked down and had gone 1.5 miles. That was fast! I was keeping a pretty good pace for an easy, hot, hilly run, too. I finished up 3 miles in thirty minutes, which I will gladly take for an “easy” run!
Now on to the skirt. Some of you may remember me talking about the sizing differences in the newer skirts. I used to wear the 2 but they cut the skirts differently now so I ordered the black in a 3 and I am glad I did. One thing I am not crazy about with the new skirts is they are longer. I thought I could tell a noticeable difference, and when I measured, I was correct in my assumption. It is fine for me, being 5’9” with long legs, but you short people may not be a big fan of the new longer length. Has anyone gotten a new one in and have any thoughts? Particularly you vertically challenged friends of mine? I knew sizing up would make the skirt slightly longer, (maybe 1/4 inch?) but this seems longer than that. It’s still a totally awesome skirt, I actually think its funny that i ahve worn so many for so long that I can tell a difference!
Other than that I loved it of course and love having a plain black skirt now! Oh, in other fun running skirts news, they have a new phone app! Right now it’s just for Android (which I happen to have!) and I of course downloaded it right away yesterday. You can log into your account, see your order history, make a wish list, and buy stuff right from the app! It was cool to use, my only complaint is that it took awhile to load the thing.
Check it out HERE!
Seriously, Running Skirts should hire me. I could me their rep for the whole south. Talk about a dream job! Maybe one day they will realize I am their biggest fan and would be a great helper of their sales.
QOTD: Have you seen the new Running Skirts spring line? Which skirt is your favorite? If I didn’t get black I would have gotten sparkle hearts or Azure/blue dot!
