Ran: 6.2 miles / 10K - running group + Cycling: 30 min
Huh? What happened to the runningskirts, the girly pink gear and the braids?
Nothing, absolutely nothing. Runningskirts and the braids: still there. As for the girly gear...also still there. I'm just a teeny tiny bit over the pink stuff. So, expect a lot less pink in 2011. Fortunately, there are lots and lots of other obnoxious colors out there. At the moment I'm a big fan of mixing purple, yellow and bright orange. Ha! Just so you know...
Punk Rock Racing
First step in the 'de-pinking' process is this Punk Rock Racing (http://www.punkrockracing.com/) technical tee. Most of you (well, the ones that live in the United States of America) are probably already a huge fan of their gear. However, the Punk Rock Racing brand is still pretty unknown in Europe. Well, I plan on changing that!
And guess what? Ron at Punk Rock Racing told me that I'm their first Dutch customer/fan. Ha!
Ouch! Serious devil eyes! Must remember to take photos with my camera instead of my phone to prevent future 'incidents'.
Bad phone camera pic...again. At least you get a proper idea of the tee and the obnoxious purple and yellow shorts. And, by the way, I love those shorts!
I got the technical tee and their 'Runner Runner Runner' cotton tee (and a bonus beanie! :)) in the mail yesterday morning, and immediately took the technical tee for a spin on last night's 'still nursing the calf strain, but easing back into running' run.
The verdict: great technical tee! Great fit (I wear the small). Plus, absolutely OK wicking qualities (and that's what this girl needs...the way I sweat...Yeugh!). And I love the design! I truly felt like a bad *ss rock star wearing this shirt. ;)
As for the run itself...I had a huge glass of wine and half a bag of crisps before heading out. Let's just say that you won't catch me having wine and crisps as a pre run meal again anytime soon...
