Boy or a Girl

Ok. Let me just say that I am a female. I do girly things. Like enjoy shopping, paint my nails, wear make-up, and wear lots of pink.

Today, I did my scheduled 5 mile workout on the treadmill at Ghetto Renew. (5miles, 66 minutes, right on my target.) I was feeling good and could have extra miles because I felt I had the energy to do more and nothing was really hurting. No knee pain, no major muscle pain. I felt, dare I say, athletic.

It could have been the placebo effect of wearing something new and comfortable. I was wearing a new dress from Athleta. (If I take this whole running thing seriously past this next year, I totally need to buy more of these. LOVE THEM!) Black dress with black compression shorts underneath. Black Lunarglide Nikes and a black Adidas mesh cap. I love wearing everything except the hat. I think all hats make me look a little dykey. But it keeps the sweat and my hair out of my face better then a headband and I have chin-length hair, so a ponytail isn't a good option. A young boy was walking with his dad from Stan's and asked him if I was a girl. He asked his dad if I was a girl 3 times as I walked out of Ghetto Renew past them to my car. I was mildly embarrassed. But I know I look sorta boyish in a hat, but I have red fingernails and carrying a pink cell phone and pink Ipod with pink earbuds. While wearing a dress.

I actually planed on wearing this outfit on Saturday for the Athena 10k. This was my test run to make sure I did not have any chaffing or whatever. I just bought this outfit for the race. Now I think I need to just scratch that and wear maybe something a little more girly in color. Like this this skirt in the Jazzy Jam purple color with a purple top that I have that matches perfectly and maybe buy a colored visor instead of a hat or something. Gosh. I don't know.

I usually don't care how I look when I work out. I know I look bad, all sweaty and stinky. But now, I think I am going to have a complex about it from here on out.

Do you worry about how others perceive you when you work out?
