put on your running clothes and rule the world

It's been awhile since I've gone for a run.  A long, long while.  It's time to get back at it.  For my sanity and my body and my energy level.

The last few days, I've had lots of good intentions.  I've gotten all dressed and ready to go, laced up my shoes and...not done it.

But, you know what I noticed?  When I am all dressed for a run, with my shoes laced up, I feel better.  Way better.  Even though I did nothing. 

There is something about being in workout gear, shoes on, that makes me feel good.  I have more energy, I walk faster, I am more physical with the kids.  I jump and play around and give piggy back rides, I smile more and I just feel better.  I get more done, I even eat better.  {It's kind of embarrassing to be in your running gear, scarfing down a Snicker's bar.}

Maybe sometime soon I will actually even go for a run. 

But for now, at least everyone else thinks I did. ;)


PS - this photo is from my instagram feed.  Last week I finally decided to make my account public.  If you are on instagram, you can follow me at sdamber


  1. I am in my work out clothes every single day for that same reason! That way, if an opportunity presents itself, you're ready to go! Plus, those clothes are just comfy!!!

  2. Good for you. (I'm glad I'm not the only one!)

  3. This cracked me up because it is so me! Only difference is...I don't run, but I love to walk the pups and do fast walking. I too feel more energized in my work out clothes and get more done. I also seem to eat healthier. (But I have been known to still sneak that snickers bar in my work out clothing)

  4. yes being in the running shoes does make you feel better and they have more support than most shoes! Good for you amber. Thinking of you

  5. Great post! Thanks for sharing this nice information with us.
