Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you may have gathered that I am a fan of Run Like A Mother: The Book. There are a few reasons for that, but I think one of the main ones is that I’m a longtime admirer of one of the authors, Sarah Bowen Shea.
Now, if SBS’s name rings a bell, that’s because she also writes for this little running publication called Runners World.
So when SBS mentioned me by name on her & Dim’s blog as a “fashionista she admires”, I was beyond flattered. (<--- understatement of century there)
Imagine my surprise then, when I woke up one day and realized that I was not only someone SBS admires for my fashion forward style, but also someone she wanted to interview for the feature article she was writing on running fashion, for Runners World!
Seriously ~ those of you who’ve known me for more than the last 15 years will get the humor. Until 1994 I wore jeans and a sweatshirt or jean shorts and a t-shirt. And that was it. No dresses. No blouses. And getting me into a skirt? Forget it.
But that was then, B.R.
This is now, A.R.
I wear a skirt everyday. I’m known for it. I often pair it with snazzy printed tall socks and some obnoxiously bright colored top to boot. And once I’m dressed in the look that I’ve coined as “slightly naughty”, I head for a run, or to the gym, or for a ride.
I am rarely without my runningskirts.com skirt.
I’m also rarely without my Bestie, Tonia, of RacingwithBabes. She’s the *SOCK runner that I admire. A true Fastinista.
The look I love~

And yeah, it's "slightly naughty", true?
I’m being quoted in the August edition of Runners World.
In the cover story.
Written by an author I admire.
Is this really my life?
Oh yes, I think it is…
And my bestie, T? Well of course she’s modeling the look that I talk about. Because really, if I’m going to be featured in Runners World Magazine, T’s going to be right there with me.
Together as always, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
