ask and you shall receive ...

The taper is off to a good start (except for all the candy I've been eating). The girls are on Spring Break, which means I am without my twice weekly, four hour long reprieve (a.k.a. preschool) this week. It also means that I am not scheduled down to the minute, since all of their afternoon activities were cancelled too. Yesterday, we spent the morning at the playground. Then had lunch with J, followed by an afternoon of 25 meter repeats on the front lawn (Dizzle and Doodle, not me). Basically, I'm trying to do my best to keep them occupied while not losing my mind. (Remember, a stress-reducing long run isn't in the cards this week.)

But there I go again, getting sidetracked. That little recap was not the point of this post. What I meant to do was to fulfill a request that several of you asked about on my RunningSkirt post. Apparently, you all want a glimpse into my sock collection (obsession, whatever you want to call it). So, here you go. My signature socks in all their glory ...

I love them. I hope you do to. And if you ever felt the need to add to my collection, I am open to accepting donations. I wear a size 10 shoe and if you want to know if I have a skirt to match ... well, you know where to look.


Oh, and speaking of sock donations, the ever-so-sweet Meg from Meg Runs! sent me these ADORABLE ones yesterday. (They arrived like two hours after the group shot, which I wasn't setting up again) ...


So cute, right? I can't wait to rock them! Thanks Meg!

Very cute! I'm in the same boat...tapering and spring breaking. Luckily, I am occupied through tomorrow, so it will only be two real days of being home with the kids, etc.

Morgan said...

You own the fashionista runner persona, in fact I think you should change your blog name to note this fact. :)

Obesession? Nah, well, nothing a little sock rehab wouldn't help ;)

Enjoy the spring break - I am very jealous. I've got ten days until mine!!! But who's counting?!

Your collection is adorable! I'll bet you have a more colorful sock collection than your kiddos!

Sarah said...

daily mom said...

Momma Twitch said...

I love your sock collection!

Meg said...

Ok, now that I see them all in their glory...I must choose the black and white stripes as my favorites. I think I am a stripe-girl. The runner-ups are the polka dots...I've always loved those, ever since you bought them at D land. I'll keep looking for you...maybe they have Boston socks...but I'm sure they'll be "serious!"
Enjoy your week with your Peanuts.

Courtney said...

are your socks cotton or made for running? i really want to find some awesome knee high socks made for running (tie dye especially) but can't find them anywhere!

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Ha ha..I love all of your socks! That is just awesome! :)

Oh, and I ordered a running skirt yesterday..woohoo! I'm so excited to get it!

Crystal said...

are they compression socks or just fun regular socks?

Michelle said...

Enjoy Spring Break! Mine only goes once a week, but even that threw me for a loop last week on our SB.

Love, love, love the socks!

Do you wear Bondi bands or some other type of band for your hair? I bought a Bondi at the expo b/c it takes 5 clips to hold my layered hair back. Curious if you had any other hair band suggestions to try.

Love the socks, thanks for sharing!

Lisbet said...

NICE running socks! And good luck with the girls on their "break", don't go too nuts.

Laurie said...

Awesome socks! I'm a huge fan of knee length socks in fun colors... they just make life better.

Tara said...

Erica said...

enjoy spring break, you rock my socks...or maybe yours whichever!

Cynthia O'H said...

I'm assuming that each sock has a partner somewhere. What fun!

Michelle said...

Thanks for the info on the bands! I'm going to try one of the sweatybands!

Stormee.M said...

I love them ! They are so fun. Are these just knee high socks, or a running sock ?

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

most of them are just knee high ... a couple pairs are compression

Holly said...

Hi there! I'm a newbie runner/blogger and have been enjoying reading your blog! LOVE your skirt collection. I am saving up for one and was excited to hear you write that they have sales on their website.

Also, I find your story of being a mother and avid runner very inspiring. I hope to do the same some day when kids come knocking...

Keep up the good work ;)

Laura said...

so I looked at the running skirt site and am curious.. do you have a brief or a short under your skirt? i have chafing problems.. NEED the short. If you do use the short... does it creep???

THANKS for the info. Love your style girl!
