Who's Up For A RUN?!

Hate to beat a dead horse here, but have I mentioned how much I love running?
Well, I am going to tell you again. I took up running seriously about a year ago last month.  And I have become addicted.  It is hard work, but so worth it.  I have given up having nice toes permanently. Any pedi  I have is going to be rubbed off in a matter of a day or two, but it is still worth it.
Why run?  Well, obviously it will burn calories (yay!), but for me the bigger benefit is the mental (and this is all relative) stability.  I feel free in my mind when I am running. I feel closer to God.  I feel like a better mother and a better wife. I know that I am relieving stress, and clearing the air in my head.
Which leads me to my OOTD from yesterday.  I did a little running around during the day yesterday, but my OOTD was nothing to write home about....
My running clothes were much more interesting. My BFF Freda gave me this running shirt, and if any of you remember, I have told you I have the sense of humor of a teenaged boy, so I think it is hilarious.  Especially since Freda is the most conservative girl EVER.  I thought you might enjoy it too.
Your Pace

Or Mine

Isn't that funny? No?  Well I think it is. Don't say I didn't warn you about my sense of humor.  And yes, I am standing INSIDE my closet.  It was the best way I could think of to take it.

Here is my OOTD from this morning. I met at Starbucks with a sweet girl from Bible Study. It was so nice to get to know her a little better. Then I came home and switched out to a pair of casual pants and a sweater to clean and pack some more.  I got my hall pantry cleaned out and packed up, then started on my glass shelves in the kitchen and two of the kitchen cabinets.  Tonight we have a dinner with some associates, which I forgot about, so I will need to get re-dressed. Ooops!

Dress: TJ Maxx
Belt: Thrifted
Sweater: J Crew Jackie

  1. i need that running shirt! that's right up my alley.
    and that dress is SO gorgeous on you. beautiful color and shape.

  2. i want that shirt! i just took up running myself and i am training for a half-marathon! wow!

  3. That shirt is PERFECT for you. I was afraid after your first sentence that you were about to call me out on your blog about not exercising yet. LOL Yes, my guilt is eating me alive. That's why I'm still losing weight without exercising. Hahahahahaha

    BTW, I want your closet. Mine is the right size for a teenage boy who doesn't have a life.

  4. you are rocking the maxis! B/c of you I was looking for one today!!

  5. Love the color blocking you have going on with the beautiful bright colors! I have become a belt addict of late (perhaps it's a relapse) and I've noticed several cute ones of yours are thrifted--do thrift stores in general usually have cute belts, or were you just lucky a few times?
    Wow, I started running a while back and did NOT feel the same way. You are one of those blessed with the love. It really doesn't always come for everybody either--Jordan says he has been running for 10 years and he still hates it. But, I really do want to give it a go again, and you'll have to be my inspiration-you and your silly shirt:-))
