Okay guys, so for today’s blog we’re going to step away from the seriousness and I’m going to write about something that I find super hilarious because I find that it is relatively true! So, I feel as if I haven’t written about anything fashion-wise in a while. And some of you might not read my blog for that, but I’m just going to jump into it and hope you guys still enjoy this post. Let’s begin!
Now, most people as you would say don’t care at all about what they wear, or what anyone wears when it comes to running, correct? Yeah, because it doesn’t matter, well not to everyone. Because at the end of the day, what matters is how hard you train, and what your personal records are, that’s what represents you, not your clothes. But to some, it does matter. Some women or men as well, like to look good when they go out for a run. Now, I’m going to name out a few of the different kinds of people there are and basically what they dress like and then you’ll finally understand why I find this a little hilarious. Now this isn’t to bash anyone, or make fun, this is just to relate to each other, because all of us reading this will fall into at least one of these categories! And it’s funny because sometimes I find myself being all of them, not just one category! Do you see yourself?
The matchy-matchy matcher
This is a runner, who’s running clothes is head to toe color coordinated. This runner looks like they are sporting something that could be worn on a fitness model, or someone who is getting ready to be in a magazine. This kind of person makes you wonder if you should maybe start buying running clothes that match with each other, instead of what stands out to you?
The hoarder of college logos
This is someone who reps the college they want to go to, or already are attending. They wear nothing but that school’s logo, shirts, sweats, sweaters, and sweatshirts! You’d think they were running for the school for how much they wear it. This person really feels the school spirit, or they really have the love to wear it so often!
The whatever is clean, or whatever is in sight
This person has a busy life, and doesn’t have time to wash clothes very often, or this person really doesn’t care about the way they look they just grab the first pair of shorts and shirt they see in their drawer and they just throw it on and go for a run. They could be wearing anywhere between an orange shirt to green shorts, and pink socks, and they still won’t care because at least it’s clean and at least they are wearing clothes.
The race shirt collector
This is someone that has bought or saved every race shirt they’ve ever gotten or been given. This person has so many that they have enough race shirts to wear a different shirt for every practice! This person has trained hard, raced hard, and has the clothing to prove it. You name the race, and this person got a shirt for it! A little insight on my life, the picture I found for this category, made me want to start collecting all of mine and make it into a quilt as well!
The no clothes runner
This is a person who will wear the least amount of clothing possible for a run. Whether it’s a pair of short shorts and a sports bra, or a pair of shirts and shirtless for a guy, they are out there running having a great time. This person is made for the summer! These people aren’t show offs or cocky, they are just serious runners who don’t like anything getting in their way, even if it’s a piece of fabric. It’s just a plus that it also keeps them cool while running.
The layering runner
This is the absolute opposite of the minimalist. This person is read for the winter. This is the person that can’t wait for just a little hint of cold, to throw on that under armor, long sleeve, and sweater over their shirt. From the sweater wearing person to the wind and water-resistant outerwear. This person can easily run that 6-mile run when it feels like 40 degrees out without someone thinking she’s crazy.
