the key to the perfect marathon ...

As we all know, a lot of things are important on marathon day.

Your weekly mileage. The quality and length of your long runs. A quality taper. Fresh legs. The weather. Hydration. Nutrition. Course support. A positive outlook.

But do you know the real key to the perfect marathon? Of course. The outfit. And mine has been selected and tested.

Quite appropriate for Indianapolis in the fall, don't you think?
p.s. - I killed yesterday's 22 miler wearing that combo. The run couldn't have gone better.

I do think the outfit is super cute! The only thing that could be better, to a Peyton lover like myself (Hello my sons name is Peyton!), would be a complete Colts themed outfit!

Cute! :D Are those just regular cotton knee high socks or are they sweat wicking?

Now I know what to look for on the day of the race! :)

I am looking forward to the 1/2 - it really is a fun race. It is where I did my first full marathon but I will have to tell you I am glad I am just doing the 1/2 this year! You'll do great though! :)

Hopefully we can meet!

I know I am doing a no-no by not testing my outfit before next weekend's half marathon but I have no choice. :S hmmm. we'll see. I'm more concerned about running through the pain of my toothache.

Julie said...

Well, yes, of course. the outfit. that is the key. that is what I'm missing. Getting on that, right away!!! Way to kill your 22!! Love the outfit.
