Running Errands

Yesterday I was tired and really did not want to run. I had heard about a compilation CD at local Staurbucks where the funds go to benefit the Wilderness society. This month is going to be BUSY at work so having nice calming music is a MUST!! I put on my Moeben Butterfly sleeves, and tucked my $20 in the pocket, then put on my ADORABLE Cloudveil outfit..

I carried my CD back in the front of my skirt. HEHEHE.. I am going to get a reputation for shopping on the run.. I am glad I got in a 4 miler on a not so good feeling day. This weekend I will be running with Amanda and I am EXCITED.. Details and pictures this weekend..

Read more about Cloudveil HERE..

Duo Tank HERE:

What Cloudveil Says:
By opting for a racer-back style, this wicking tank added extra mobility and breezier venting to its athletic resume. Side mesh panels create additional airflow when moving rapidly and allow the entire trunk to twist and turn. An active cut stays comfortable for every exercise from a quick sprint up the ski hill to a long run at the elk refuge.

Tall Mom Thoughts:
I wore this on a Fall day and felt perfect. The fabric is high quality and will keep you cool/warm depending on what is needed.. FYI this top is on sale for $14 and comes in PINK.. Hello.. Quality and value how can you pass it up. This tank is true to size. And if you don't like tanks, there is a GREAT T-shirt style HERE for $16.

I am not flashing you...just showing the cute little under compression shorts. I was NERVOUS to wear this outfit mainly because I thought the skirt would be too short. FYI LOVE IT!!

Duo Skirt HERE:

What Cloudveil Says:

Designed as a freeing alternative to sweaty shorts, this aerobic skirt has become a favorite for fitness hikes and training runs. Contrasting Pace™ mesh side panels stretch and breathe, a wide elastic waist sits high or low on the hips and an inside security sleeve stashes a key or a card. A mesh short provides internal coverage.

Tall Mom Thoughts:

This skirt is HEAVEN. I went to the website to buy another one and SAD!!! They only have one color left... Bummer. The fit is perfect, a bit longer which I love. For $20 if you like white go shop now before the skirt is gone...

What a cute running outfit! Very flattering on you.

(Oh and thanks for the offer to be added to your high 5 list. I'm just doing a relay tomorrow, but next weekend is a PR-seeking half, and I could use all the help I can get for that. :o)

Went to Fleet Feet tonight, and liked it:) So we got online and picked up one of the gift certificates. Need new shoes desperately...my shins are hurting:P

That's really all I run in - skorts. That's great those are long enough for your long legs. ;) My friend, Christy, has trouble with skorts because of her leg length (her legs go up to my elbows!)
