Whether you are a runner who grabs a pair of shorts and a tech t-shirt for a race or a running fashionista, you likely have a go to set of running clothes that you wear whenever it’s clean (or maybe even when it’s not. I’ve never pulled dirty clothes out of the hamper to run. Ahem.) Tell us about that outfit. Is it the exact same pair of shorts or do you have several in different colors? Is there a tank or shirt that’s your go to top that never chafes and makes you feel good? What about your shoes? Do they match or are they equipment not fashion?
The evolution of my (warm weather) running uniform…
When I first started running, I wore compression shorts and whatever race shirt I got my hands on. My shoes were whatever neutral shoe felt good in the store.
Then I moved on to some comfy shorts I found, once again combined with a logo’d tech shirt.
Then I discovered skirts and tried a bunch of different options for skirts and shoes. (Best picture of my legs ever LOL, mostly because the skirt (not a Skirt Sports skirt) was riding up where it did not belong.)
Finally, I came to my happy place AKA the Happy Girl from Skirt Sports, compression socks, and Altra Running shoes.
Seriously, my tops may vary, but you’ll find Altra One 2 or 2.5 on my feet, compression socks, and a Happy Girl or Gym Girl Ultra on my bottom half. I seriously could have chosen any one of dozens of race photos to show you.
If I could only choose one skirt, I’d choose the Happy Girl in Tantrum (affiliate link, available on the site now, use MCM20 for 20% off). I LOVE this pattern and wear it in the GGU for now. Best part? Every single shirt goes with this pattern. Seriously. So do all of my Altra Running shoes. (affiliate link)
