Just call me the running diva


Friday, February 10, 2012

Here is a picture of the running skirt I will be getting from www.sparkleskirts.com/
Right now there are only two of these: mine and another one for a lady (a grandmother) who is running a marathon in each of the 50 states to raise funds for autism as well. (I am blanking on the name of the foundation, but I believe its one that helped her grandson.)

Leah at Sparkle Skirts is thinking of making this skirt as a limited issue one (maybe at least 30, although maybe more if enough people express an intrest!) ... with some of the proceeds to benefit an autism foundation like Autism Speaks or Organization for Autism Research.

I waited to post the picture until after I had her permission to do so.. after all, right now its her skirt and her photo! But oh yes, my precious, that skirt will be mine! I can not WAIT to try it on and run in it. (And in my "regular" life I'm not much of a skirt person, but for some reason this skirt really gets me excited..excited to wear it, excited to run, just plain EXCITED!!)

    LOVE IT!! I wear cycling skirts, and I find them much more flattering and comfortable than bike shorts alone.

You'll have to give us a road-test review w/pics!

    I know! As I think about it, I think part of it is body confidence... now that I've lost almost 60 lbs, I feel more confident, sexy, etc...and the skirt is part of that. at least for me.

    That is very cool looking! How fun to run in something like that. I'm not particularly a skirt person either, but something about running in a skirt just sounds FUN!
