Capri Season


I wore capri tights for the first time this season.  It is love again.  How easily I forgot the wonderful feeling of snug capris.  Why is it that I can forget their sleek feel that makes me feel oh-so-runnerish.  Even if I look a little more oh-so-stuffed-into-themish. 
But come on.  My legs rub.  There I said. 
I'm still trying to get this I-don't-have-a-big-girl-job-so-I-can-eat-anytime-I-want weight off.  It's harder as the years go by.  But even before the extra pounds joined the party, my legs rubbed together when I ran.  Somehow outside of ultra length events I got away with few issues in that areas until the past year.   

But none of that mattered yesterday because I had on my capris.  That extra me was a problem but not with a wonderful pair of capri tights.  I lucked into a solo run and was able to actually pick up my pace.  It was the most creative run I've had in ages.  I drafted blog posts and mentally wrote a three volume novel that is sure to be a best seller.  If I had more time who knows what I could have done!

So even though today will be jogger run which will probably be at a not as comfortable slower pace, I won't quickly forget that wonderful feeling of yesterday's run.  And given what day it was, I think that there must have been something special about how it all worked out. 


  1. I love capris, but as I do every year, I hold out on giving in to wearing them. I like to pretend that colder weather isn't on its way!

  2. You are too funny, I want to put off squeezing in to the capri's as long as possible because I don't want to give up summer yet! LOL! I'm glad you had such a wonderful run and isn't it the best when you finish feeling like you accomplished more than just the run?!?! :)

  3. I wish I got to don capris. Alas, that's a "winter" thing for me, and even then, I don't truly need them much at all here in FL.

  4. Wow, been sitting for an our now looking through your blog! You are awesome! I'm just getting back on track after some time off because of injurys and lack of insperation. But this is truly insperation for me!


  5. I'm still wearing my running skirts, but I can feel the cold creeping in… Soon I'll have to grab my capris from the cupboard too, but I'm not looking forward to it.


  6. Ha, ha, good post. I'm still running in shorts up here in Alaska but it's not going to last much longer. I'm trying to delay the inevitable as long as possible.
    P.S. Will you have a treadmill before winter?
