Spectating makes me hungry and 26.2

May 7, 2011

I think Provo wins the award for the most marathon spectators.  I was so excited all morning to come out and watch the marathon.  I kept running in to tell BIlly the latest update.  ”I am the only person outside for miles and I am still loving every second.”  I brought out my breakfast and a few minutes later the leaders ran by and Billy had to hold me back from joining in and running with them.  It is completely normal to be craving ‘hitting the wall’ right?!?!?!

After spin, a lil’ elliptical and some weights (aka 3 minutes of attempting to try to motivate myself to do anything) I met with some friend’s from college at the usual hang out spot.  Seriously, if you are ever in Utah County I guarantee you can find me chillaxing at a table in Yogurtland.

Billy said I look like a pirate in that shirt.  He is getting smarter and quickly added, “I mean a hot pirate.”  Just the look I was going for.

The amazing people at 26.2 sent me the CUTEST outfit.  I know you are saying to yourself, “Janae, why are you wearing those running clothes when you are a complete gimp and not even allowed to jump on the elevator.”  My answer for you is that I use them for lifting, spin, the elliptical and walking around so that I look cool and so that people think I am still a runner:)  I really LOVE how they feel and let’s be honest, their colors are the cutest.

You are welcome 26.2 for washing my hair before the photo shoot so that people wouldn’t associate a grease ball with your clothing.  I really do LOVE what they have…check out their website!

Sometimes I forget that people read my blog and I put really weird pictures of myself on and don’t even think twice.

The only con of the outfit is for my next game of hide and go seek at night.  The reflector’s on the back would give me away in a second.

What are your Saturday night plans?

-We are going to our fave restaurant and then wherever the wind takes us (which will probably be a movie).

What was the biggest race that you ran in or that you spectated?

-The SLC marathon was the biggest one that I ran in but I think that New York in November might be a little bigger.

What color do you work out in the most?

-Black with accents of BRIGHT colors.

The biggest one I ran in was today and it was massive! The half alone had almost 6000 finishers, which sounds like a lot to me, but probably isn't. Thanks to said race, my plans involve sleeping and eating.

I work out in mostly black with a lot of blues and grays. That 26.2 stuff is super cute!

Such a cute running outfit!!I love the reflectors on the back – being safe while running is a plus.

Tonight I am sitting on my couch and not moving until I go to bed. I have been so busy and tonight is my first night to just relax in such a long time.

I did a half in Maryland (Frederick, anyone?) and the crowd support was about the same as in the picture in certain areas. Thanks for coming out to cheer on the runners- I needed cheering today!

I wear anything bright and obnoxious. I find it totally acceptable to wear. I think people are way past judging me.

That outfit from 26.2 is super cute, I saw that Skinnyrunner and Almostrunner were talking about that line, I am definitely going to have to check it out now!
Also I was just thinking that I should volunteer for a race just to be on the other side and cheer on the runners. I guess I will put that on my to do list!

I wear tons of bright colors when I'm running. Which is funny because I usually wear fairly dark colors during normal life. Love your 26.2 outfit/photoshoot!

My saturday night plans are chilling out with Mike and Bungee. We had a big day of running, yard work, and hiking. We're beat!!

I would KILL to see mountains like that. OH MY GOSH breathtakingly beautiful. Try looking at where you live from someone else's eyes. Seriously you live in such a beautiful state. UTAH here I come… one day. Oh & when I go I will have to try Yogurtland. I've never even heard of it till I came across your blog.

The biggest race I've run in is a marathon + relay in Vermont, and there's so much energy from all the runners & all the spectators.

My Saturday night plans include hanging out on the couch and reading blogs. Very interesting, I know.

I run the Peachtree Road Race each year which is 55,000 people. It's a 10K.

You look great in the running outfit!
LC the above poster said she would sleep in it……me too because I have gotten lazy like that. I like to roll out right to my workout…. not sure the hubby thinks the sports bra is his idea of cute jammies. :)

i am getting so addicted to 26.2 clothes and I do not even own any yet…i just read about them ALL the time. haha.

I am so sad I did not see you at the race today. I should have just ran down to your house :) BIggest race I ran in was today…but I CANT WAIT FOR UTAH VALLEYYY!

Love you. oh and you are still a runner…even if you cant run right now. I hated that comment "so people think I am still a runner." Don't ever say that again. k? great. now that we got that outta the way…I CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN :)

I love that outfit!! So cute! I ran in the Country Music half marathon last week in Nashville… I think it had 30,000 people. I'm so scared to run a smaller race since there won't be as many spectators :)

RunningOnCoffee May 7, 2011 at 8:07 pm

I love that you wore running shorts to watch the race :) What shoes are you wearing, the NB minimus??

Tonight's plans: sitting on the couch watching tv.

Biggest Race: Philly Rock n' Roll Half marathon in September 2010 (I think it was ~15k people).

Most Worn Color: Black (running shorts, spinning shorts, crops, and a couple tanks and long sleeve tops). After that, blue is a runner up.

I love your blog!

My Saturday night plans: I'm watching a documentary on the royal family (obsessed!) on PBS and about to crash. Got up way too early for a 5k this morning and no time to nap today.

Biggest race I've run (and running again in 2 months yay!) is the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. Over 50k people and so.much.fun.

Saturday night plans- planning my primary singing time lesson & cleaning my house for the fam to come over tomorrow.

Love the clothes! I don't really have a main color- just a hodge podge. I really need a running outfit makeover.

My biggest race- the SLC 1/2 marathon 6 years ago! A couple babies later, I'm about to run my 1st marathon on the 21st. Can't wait!

Cute running outfit!! Besides the con of giving away your location during hide and seek, I love the reflectors!!

Shane guilted me into staying up until 10:00 last night…to watch tv. I know, soooo late ;)

And I've never been a spectator before!! I really want to make a sign and cheer on some runners though!!

stoppingfordaisies.com May 8, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Love love love that top and shorts!! I really want some clothes from 26.2, I've heard amazing things from them, but I feel like I should be able to run that distance in order to be able to wear their clothes. And I don't know that I'll ever be able to run that far.

I totally want to spectate now, looks like fun!

Giving a Pandora elegance bracelet is in fact a amazing treat for any youthful woman or teenager. usually you maybe can acquire the bracelet by itself with 3 or 4 beads witout a doubt within the bracelet (they are nicely separated, even in the occasion you only have several charms on them.) Then, men and women can combine towards bracelet by offering charms for birthdays, xmas or other specific times which include a unforgettable vacation, graduating from high-school, and later on the delivery of her 1st child, etc.
