Sooo I shopped after my race!
I love the color. It is the same soft material as the pink jacket.
Sweat Once a Day who suggested I then get it for her. If you follow her blog you know she loves pink. Perhaps it is not the only thing I got her.
I'm going to throw a little bit about running in here too. Today I ran 12 with my friend, T, and once again it was soooo cold! I am not a wuss but I have had enough with the freezing temps. I am not asking for shorts weather but in the 30s would be to die for. T took a new pic of me for my header. I thought I should make it a bit more seasonal. She is a great sport to take her gloves off in the temps we are running in.
Overall in my race yesterday I was 96/176 in the middle of the pack which is where I am apt to be. But agewise I am not in the middle of the pack so I feel just great with this!
