I've decided to model and give a report on each of my skirts as I test them out. Today I wore my Champion running skirt from the sale rack at target. I've worn this one to the gym a few times and it works well for that. There is a zippered pocket in back, perfect for keys. There are built-in shorts underneath, from the same material as the skirt. I wore it today hoping to give a field test report from running in it, but that will have to wait for another day.
For you dog people, the hands-free leash is around my waist under the long sleeve shirt. I even got Bandit to tolerate the yellow bandana. We were color coordinated and ready to do this thing.
I arrived early to the race venue to find at least a hundred dogs already there. Some better behaved than others; but most (including mine) in a what can only be described as a heightened state of sensory overload. I was struggling to get Bandit to ignore the other dogs and focus on me. I hadn't even made it from the parking lot to the starting area when I realized that this wasn't going to be a fun way for me to spend my morning afterall. And since FUN is my over-riding goal at the moment, I simply turned around, got back in the car, and headed home. With that decision comes my second DNS for the year.
