Bay To Breakers Tutu Trial

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I bought a tutu to wear for the Bay to Breakers this year and decided I should try it out sometime before the race. Good thing I did. I will NOT be wearing one. Not only is it unflattering, it also rubs my arms when I walk and run....I can see chafing would be an issue.

    I must remember the Tutu for my next running race. I'm not at the "Full Costume" stage yet!

    I know how that can be! I have a pink petticoat for "special runs!" Glad it fits well with no issues!

    How did I miss this? I applaud anyone who can wear a tutu while running--for me running itself is enough of a challenge, lol. Glad you tried it out ahead of time, though!

    That would certainly add to the challenge, but not in a productive way. Good call.

    I sure don't blame you for not wanting to chafe, even though it looks quite awesome and enviable!

    Oh, I love it!!! Too bad it doesn't work out for running... :( You should keep with the bright green socks though!

    You look adorable in your tutu! DwightyBob says so too. It's a shame they don't make them out of softer material. Perhaps you can get a ribbon and some soft tulle from the fabric store and make your own!

    Cute - but that's a long way to run in an annoyed state of mind and a chafed state of skin. Maybe you need a hip-hop version that sits way low on the hips, lol.

    It's cute! But the chafing would not be good.

    I like it on you, cute. But I can see the chafing being a pain to deal with. Good luck on the run though.

    It's very cute on you, but the chafing, not so much. One of these days, I'd love to do Bay to Breakers.

    Chafing is so not fun!

Somehow I couldn't picture you as the tutu type but you do look cute in it!

    You could always make one! There are plenty of tutorials on pinterest. I made a BUNCH of tutus for the girls that finished the couch to 5k program with me! You will have a blast!

    Chafing is a no-no! Although without long pants it would be pretty cute!
