Here I am trying on shoes and chatting and showing off my funky socks.
|Without the flash|
So here I am in the dressing room, showing off my winter legs. I thought the shorts felt good. And I was also excited to get a raffle ticket just for trying on some of the new Brooks Pure Project gear. But then Suzanne from Elite took my photo with my camera flash on. And then things got exciting.
I like a little bit of sparkle now and then. And even though paparazzi aren't following me around snapping flash photos while I run, I like the idea that the reflective shorts will make it a little more likely a car will see me if I'm running at dusk.
So I bought the shorts and got my raffle entry to win any other Brooks Pure Project item for free.
I then proceeded to take photos of random people coming out of the dressing room in their crazy reflective Brooks Pure Project gear, like this headless lady in a running jacket. I like mytops to hit past my waist, though, so this jacket was not my style.
The party continued for awhile and my husband and I spent some time looking at track spikes. Here is a close-up of some crazy honeycomb spikes. We also shared our war stories about track spikes. Yes, there are war stories about track spikes. We went to high school together, and ran on the track teams in high school (admittedly at different speeds, but still) so we had a lot of good times to recall.
Then it was time for prizes. And guess who won!
|I Get Lucky|
This was my first running fashion show but I hope it won't be my last. I had a seriously fun time and the team at Elite really knows how to throw a great party.
