Run Like A Princess

My Daughter's Guide To Running Like A Princess:
  • A princess runs in dresses, skirts or tutus – no shorts and definitely no sweats!
  • A princess favors pink in all clothing.
  • A princess wears running shoes as long as they are pink and sparkly.
  • A princess runs with one hand holding out her skirt as if she is Belle ball-dancing with the Beast.
  • A princess is free to take frequent rest breaks and be pushed by her mother/servant (is there a difference?) until she feels up to running again.
  • A princess is also free to interrupt a run with a spontaneous ballet recital of sorts.
  • A princess can add dancing at any point during a run.
  • A princess enjoys a short nap after a long run.

Fashionable Running

My typical summer running outfit includes a pair of shorts, a tank top, a sports bra, socks and a handkerchief to wipe away sweat.
This morning I put on a pair of black shorts and a loose black and white sleeveless Champion® top from Target that my hubby bought for me. When I walked out to the kitchen to put Monkey’s shoes on she said, “Yuck!”
“What? My shirt?” I asked.
“Yes. I don’t like that.”
“You don’t? It’s not pretty?”
“No. It’s yucky.”
So I changed.
To make Monkey really happy I’m going to have to invest in a running skirt.
So what does the always fashionable Monkey wear to run? A pretty princess dress, of course.
