Twin Tuesday

For a good portion of my little mushroom cut headed life I referred to Tuesday as Twin Tuesday..specifically for this reason

ImageThats right…every Tuesday, the local TV station showed 2 episodes of Full House and i was OBSESSED with these twins

But anyways, done rambling for now

I want to chat about my obsession with workout clothes

“Hi I’m Kaity and im a racer back, capri, running short/shoe addict”

My closet is dedicated solely to this weird addiction I have, its broken up into colors, seasons,  and sports, and yes this system totally makes no sense and i end up throwing them all on the same shelf anyways.

But one trend I’ve really embraced is the annoying NEON color pieces…it has nothing to do with fashion (okay im lying, it partly does) but safety.

I can not tell you how many times I’ve gone out for my run and been thissssclooooose to being turned into road kill.

Neon colors has helped make drivers more aware of the whole I AM RUNNER HERE ME ROAR attitude I project.

Running Safety is often a topic that people overlook, and I think thats because of the “that will never happen to me” mind frame a lot of runners have.  The rule of thumb for drivers will always be “Just because you can see them, doesnt mean they can see you”..this is my running motto to live by, and it has saved my life countless times.

So if youve been weary of putting some hot neon colors over your hot bods, dont be.  Dont be self conscious of your safety, even if its as simple as neon accents on a piece of clothing, just give it a try, I promise you wont look like some over desperate tween rave kid.

Here are some stylish examples:

It’s been (too long) a while

I admit it…

I chickened out on going into the bloggospher..I wrote a few, got LOTS of views after my post on Caitlin’s site, and once those views game down, the inner perfectionist in me wanted people to like me, and lack of views meant  OH EM GEE NO ONE LIKES ME!?!?!?!

I lost consistency and threw in the towel before I even started

The short amount of time I was writing and commenting and connecting, I felt like I finally found a group to fit in with…there were literally hundreds of writers out there who were like looking into a mirror at myself…

As a young adult, Ive struggled to find a lot of people who share my love for going to a yoga class on a friday night, or wake up at 7am on a Saturday to run 10miles.  People around me think im NUTS for doing that (you RUN for PLEASURE…youre so weird), but when I read blogs I see that there are lots of nutsos out there like me

So Ive decided to write again, write to connect, write to feel sane, and write to keep up with my goals in the upcoming months (another half marathon, a full, and lots of yoga so I can, you know, finally touch my toes)

A lot has happened to me since the, oh TWO YEARS, since I last wrote..and It will take some time to fill anyone in…but ill start by introducing this guy, who’s driven me insane, but yet taught me to not take things so seriously at the exact same time…Image
